Apple's Awesome Thread (was 9/9 Event Thread)

post #1 of 126
Thread Starter 

I dunno, I just can't get excited about a watch. A bigger iPhone, yes. I haven't been keeping up, but I'm a little skeptical about the mind blowingness of what's to come, hope I'm wrong though.

I am with you ... Just can't get pumped up too much anymore ...

I… am excited, and not, at the same time.

 

If it's a wearable, it needs to be about 10x as good as a Pebble, because I had two of those and sold them very quickly.

the real question is how many times the word "innovative" will be spoken

Without Jobs I don't have the same level of interest in these events as I did when he was at the helm.  I just finished reading "Inside Apple" and while it isn't always flattering towards Jobs, I came away from reading it with a great deal of admiration for the man.

I want to be wowed. But tempering my expectations. I remember that first iPhone event. Those were the days.

Hey, we all know that they over play the "innovation" and "ground breaking" angles. Every company does, it's rather redundant.

 

I.E.

 

"Introducing the new Iphone, a groundbreaking step in innovation."

 

I haven't gotten excited for any announcements in technology, everything that comes out is already old news by the time we can buy it anyway.

I'm watching the live stream, interested to see what's new

It is the box! :-P


 

I am not big in to technology hype like this. My biology teacher in highschool spent the night outside of best buy for the Playstation 2. There are people who sold their place in line for the new iphone (which at the time hasn't announced its release date yet) for a few grand. I don't get those type of people. I rather wait for the initial hype to wear off and read some reviews.

And typically the brand new things like that have lots of bugs/issues that you are better off waiting a bit to get fixed before get it.

Uhm, no. You're quickly venturing into hater territory, and while I'm not a "fanboy," I despise Haters. Come with some facts or a well-reasoned argument, and it's cool. Make up stuff like that and you just get ignored as a Hater.

For an iPhone 6, I don't know that "reviews" are all that important. It'll probably be what Apple says it is… and you'll be able to take the iterative improvements and apply them to the reviews of the 5S, the 5, the 4S, the 4… etc. It'll be a pretty "known quantity."

 

If they do a wearable, well, that's new. Millions will buy right away. I'm not that type either.

 

Apple actually doesn't hype things very much. Others do it for them. Sometimes they're then underwhelmed, but they build up such huge expectations, that it's their own dumb fault.

Has nothing to do with hate, I apply the same philosophy to all new things that come out. I typically wait to pick up anything to allow for the bugs and issues to be fixed. Whether it's a new model car or a new gaming station. You are assuming what I said was only meant for apple when it's not. You are seeing "hate" where there isn't any.

In general, that applies. But general isn't the topic of the thread, man. So yes, I assumed you were sticking to the topic. :)

My bad, I said "typically" instead of "in general" and left it open to interpretation.

@iacas - You prefer the 4.7 or 5.5? I don't like big phones but that two pane feature on the 5.5 looks like it could be useful and the better battery life.
