A little quick on the trigger, there buddy.
The "learn to read" can go both ways. In my post, which you did qoute, I pointed out that the "event" that has your shorts in a bunch was not for you. It was not for me either. Neither of us needed this update spoon-fed to us if we are regulars on AI. In fact, anyone who has been reading the serious predictions and leaks of what was comming should have known that there were no major announcements expected. So, I turn it back to you, "Can't you read?"
No, this was for people who are not paying the least attention to Apple (like my mother-in-law). If you havent noticed, on Google/News there has been a headline every day for 3 or 4 days previewing this "event." And there is one now, covering it. Can you say free publicity. That is why they had an "event." This publicity would not have happend if they just put out a press release.
It simply had nothing to do with being worth your time. (You will say it was just a "waste of time" not of "your" time, but you speak for so few...)
This could have been a release from any other company with what we received today and they wouldn't call a press conference to upgrade their phones, portables- whatever.
If its not a major upgrade - just release it- no need for such hoopla.
You have sooo missed the point. Hoopla may not please you, but it was exactly the point. Hoopla is free publicity. It is a good thing. It is what Apple wanted. I'm sorry if it bugs you.
Now, some could complain that too much hoopla for minor events and the world will stop caring. That could be a valid complaint or concern, but I see no one making it.
And that's not saying I don't like what was released.
So buy one and quit yer yappin already...
