AppleTV now $69 with HBO Now launching as an Apple exclusive. Also, the new Macbook looks awesome.

I'm missing the appeal to see what is clearly on the iPhone and putting it on my wrist. These won't last forever like a, Rolex should.

Is the iPhone 6+ screen not big enough? Or is it too much work to take it out of my fanny pack?

OR is the Instagram screen on the iPhone too big so I'd prefer to look at the image on this smaller screen?
Here I'm drawing a picture of a flower on my watch to send to me wife.
480p camera on the new Macbook pros, comical.

If they had launched a presale last year when the first announced the watch, I would have bought one instantly (due to my irrational desire to own iEverything), no questions asked. Here I am 6 months later and I have no interest in owning one. All it's going to do is be one extra thing to charge every night and kill my iPhone batter quicker. The main appeal to me would be the Apple Pay, but I'll just get a 6s in September and be set.

I dig the sexiness of the thinner Macbook. A little uneasy about the fact that it has only one port and it's USB-C. I like the Magsafe power connector! I rarely physically connect anything to my laptop anyway, so I could probably live without USB, ethernet, video connection, etc anyway at this point.

And those watches are definitely too expensive for me. For that price range I'd buy a Swiss automatic that'll still work great 50 years from now. These will be obsolete (well, not quite obsolete, but old news anyway) in a year. The voice call over Wifi thing is pretty cool though. I know a lot of people would get good use out of that feature, so that you don't have to have your phone on your hip constantly while at home.
Because it's the print we deserve, but not the one we need right now. So we'll hunt it.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

When I could get a basic minutes package and some data connection, id have no problem getting rid of my phone just for the watch and a moto hint / spike jonze Her like ear bud as a daily driver. Could careless about a camera cause majority of people im with are taking a fudge load of photos. If im away from my computer its mostly because I need to pay attention and engage with someone.

That Macbook - Nom Nom! Best mobile notebook on the market for sure. It's GOOOOOOOLD!
That Apple Watch.. If I ever got one.. Stainless Steel w/ Steel Band. ATM - That price is so high...I would have a hard time justifying that expense.
That Apple TV - Great Job on the Price Drop -- They need to update it badly.

As a fan of watches and a casual watch collector... I find the iWatch to be really ugly. That side profile alone is :hanging:

I haven't really had a chance to do much reading on the watches or watch the keynote, but I don't understand spending 10k on a watch that will be outadated in a year? Is it the Band that is costing that much or the actual watch itself?

The watch is $350. 10k is for a rose gold version that nobody will buy.

And they actually go up to 17K...Some very, very serious watches at that price point out there that will actually retain their value, or even increase over time.

Did anyone upgrade to iOS 8.2 yet? There is a nice new apple watch propaganda app that can't be deleted.
