Call me naive, but I somehow got the impression Apple will surprise us with something big this year.
First, there is the very provocative headline “by innovation only”, which is a ballsy move considering Microsoft, Google, Samsung are all about to present their innovations right now. We also just learned, that Apple is going to stream their event for the first time on YouTube. Then there’s a long series of rather underwhelming rumors, none of which quite hits the mark for something truly innovative. And we have solid hints at a “one more thing” revelation.
How is there no rumors yet? I don’t know, but Apple has invested into making their supply chain leak proof, so maybe it finally pays off.... I actually could imagine something truly transformative along the lines of Apple glasses being revealed (might even make sense to introduce them together with a phone that’s supposed to be capable of charging accessoires)
For me it will be a better camera.
The whine-fest here would be epic.
Who’s skipping watching this keynote live?
I always watched Apple keynotes live stream if they’re available. But this time, I’m not going to do it anymore. The hype has simply worn off, with a bulk, if not all, the contents are already known/leaked beforehand.
Imagine being used to watch your favorite tv show live when it was being broadcast, but now the day before the show, every media are talking about the show’s spoiler.
It’s mostly the presentation itself. For the past few keynotes, literally the whole contents were already leaked a day before. That takes a lot of energy away from the keynote. Add on the people presenting are merely reading teleprompters, it’s really disappointing. Even Phil Schiller don’t look so enthusiastic anymore, simply reading the slides verbatim. Craig is arguably the only one left with an ounce of energy left (and maybe the watchOS guy).I'll watch but it's no where near as fun as a few years ago. Not Apple's fault. It was inevitable do to the nature of tech that they were going to reach a limit of maturity. While I think things would be better with Jobs at the helm I have no doubts he would also be facing a lot of challenges.
I have the series 2 watch. Ive been holding out on the series 5 but if no major updates are coming then I might as well upgrade now.
Yes they certainly do damage on one’s finances. If they were made as well as in years past you could justify the purchase as it was very likely the unit would give you 6 years or more of service. At the moment I don’t feel they provide the same value.
You’re probably a better candidate for the Series 4, and I say that because, the Series 5 probably is going to be more of an upgrade with the processor, additional metal casing’s for the watch, native sleep tracking, etc. But the Series 4 will probably be discounted and also be competitive against the Series 5, because I doubt the Series 5 will drastically offer anything different over the Series 4.
errmm why? How come iPhone 7 is acceptable but iPhone 34 isn't?
