You don't think there's somewhere else to go to see next year's tablet do you?  Microsoft?  Samsung?  Remember, they present theirs after Apple, not before.  Yes, the presentations are professional and business like.  But it's still the first place you get to see the future.  

 

(Do you think both Microsoft and Samsung will be interested?  ;=)

And I'd add the real present rather than the speculative one. Until it's announced buy Apple it's all some level of guess.

 

Can't buy and use vaporware.

Same here. They’ll update it; don’t worry. It’ll be a week or so after launch, though.

I yearn for an Apple keynote that has more than incremental improvements. It's been too long since we've had "one more thing."

iOS 7 inspired app on the way, too?

Better have an up to date iPad Mini Retina - A7X, M7, dual flash, 4GB RAM, IGZO display and 802.11 ac.

These events just aren't the same without Steve Jobs. He always lent a bit of mystery as to some unexpected product. Nowadays, these events are pretty much a waste of time. Every product that Apple comes out with is met with industry scorn. The products are either too expensive or not innovative enough or don't offer enough features. There is just the generalized hate of Apple in the computer and smartphone industry where anything Apple does never meets expectations. The new iPads will be compared to the low-cost entries from Amazon and Google and will be seen as not packing enough bang for the buck. All the industry and Wall Street wants now is $200 plastic tablets, because some peasants in China can't afford to buy iPads.

I'm at a loss as to what Apple could come out with that the computer industry would get excited about. Maybe something like a tablet with the power of a high-end Haswell chip that gets 20 hour battery life and folds up so you can put it in your shirt pocket. General technology isn't that advanced and yet Apple is expected to come out with something like that. Apple is just totally screwed and Tim Cook doesn't have a clue. Everyone already hates the "trash can" Mac Pro and it hasn't even gone on sale yet. Apple's luck and share price is getting worse by the day.

In the latter years with Steve, the events weren't as interesting either. Technology just ran its course. People get excited by things that are new and there are only so many new things you can do that are interesting. That's why people don't really go on about another iPad iteration these days, they've moved onto wearables like watches or TVs or some other gadget because another iPad is just another iteration of something that's already familiar.

You say that as if this only started recently. Apple has always had to fight to be accepted with their products.

The alternative would have been for it to be EOL, which some people would have hated or largely the same design, which few people care about these days anyway and that kind of update would have gone by largely unnoticed so it would be EOL shortly after as sales would continue to fall. They have all the sales data and their decisions reflect the data. People without the data assess their decisions based on what they assume the sales data is and where the market is going. For the 90-95% of Mac Pro buyers that don't buy expansion cards, the new Mac Pro should be better value for money than the old one and certainly better performance moving to PCIe storage from SATA 3G HDDs.

Yeah, still only valued with the highest market cap of any company in the world by a clear $65b while raking in $40b profit per year and having record product launches. People who are disappointed with that performance should just abandon Apple - sell shares, sell Apple products and never post on an Apple related forum again, just flush them entirely out of their lives.

"Every product that Apple comes out with is met with industry scorn."

 

The first iPod was completely scorned: as there'd been mp3 players for a decade.

 

And yes, the first iPhone was practically laughed off as a complete joke. "no keyboard?"

Gonna miss this Baller guy. Big time.

So, I am guessing by 1 PM Eastern we should know if this 10/22 event is for real or not, no? Invites would need to go out today, if they follow their normal pattern.
