    Do you honestly believe it can be the most memorable Apple event every year or are you pillorying my comment because you don't think 2017 will stand out among the most memorable Apple events?

    I own nearly Apple product there is including 1st gen Apple TV and last gen black Apple TVs, but I've moved on to Nvidia Shield now which is already 4k. I won't be going back to Apple TV. Too little, too late for me. The Nvidia Shield blows the Apple TV away completely and I usually hate Android...lol.
