    As much as I like LG, their UI is almost as bloatware laced as Samsung's. I still feel that Windows Phone 8.0 was the cleanest UI I've used to date.

    And of course, thus isndone by designs to build a loyal customer base and to maximize products from said loyal customer base. Apple is a master at this.

    It is why talking tech with most people is not fun within the mobile space. All the car fans here on the thread will understand that even though there are different brands, that industry is based on innovation, so when another company develops something new or really refines an existing idea, they get the appropriate praise.

    When Apple puts their spin on **** and sells it to the iSheep that they've invented something, it is really disrespectful to the original developers of the idea. People borrow from each other all the time in the mobile space, but I just cannot support a company as arrogant as the Fruit Stand.

    I never realised how bad it's gotten until I talked to a guy who sits beside me who went totally Apple last year. No idea that anyone else had 4K recording or better cameras. No idea that the Surface had all the same features the that iPad Pro had. No idea that a lot of the features on iPhone 6S is on other phones already.

    Basically what you have is people becoming zombies to technology. That's pretty sad when I think about it. There as a time in the past where innovation was simply that. It appears to be dying as far as I'm concerned.

    It's crazy when I hear people talk about Apple. It's almost like nothing else can be better or more innovative. I know this is the 'typical' Apple fan but I can't believe how blind people are.

    I don't hate on Apple, as they bring a lot to the table. But I'm quick to shear iSheep when they start bleating about how great Apple is. That is why id never post over at iMore because 99 would have my head on a pike.Technically, I'm an equal opportunity fanboy blaster so it doesn't matter to me.

    How some fanbots act with tech are just as scary as some act with religion, sports, etc. People are scary at times...

    I don't hate Apple either. Actually I wouldn't mind trying one of their devices just to out of curiosity. I have no plans to switch but I am curious what all that hype is about. Thing is I don't want to spend that kind of cash on 'fun'.

    It's like eating your mom's signature dish in a high end restaurant. The only difference is you're paying for more expensive ingredients or ambiance, but the food eats the same.

    Personally, I don't always need free ranged meat in order to cook a good stew.

    There's a glut in terms of innovation that is in the market now. OEMs are concerned with refining and consolidating their vision for consumers. I don't expect Apple to have cross market appeal becuase they're selling you a premium experience first and foremost.

    OEMs don't understand or care to understand that admitting mistakes win points with consumers. I suppose the goal is to keep investors happy, as they don't like when companies admit mistakes.

    People are bashing Apple, and rightfully so, because of the type of arrogance that they use. While Jobs is dead and gone, that arrogance still exists within the company - right, J. Ivey?

    Okay so here is the long and short summary of the Apple event. Some of the quips in here are courtesy of Walt Mossberg and Lauren Goode. They had some nice comments during the live cast yesterday compared to the fanboys from The Verge.

    Apple Watch - New leather bands from Hermes and Product RED color bands. Yawn....

    Apple TV - Interesting and nicely presented. But a new OS to run a TV console? MSFT is going in the One OS on all devices and Apple is busy creating more OSes. I think their reasoning is more apps, more revenue for developers because there might not be cross platform support across Apple devices. That will not prevent the people who don't mind spending more than once on Apple services. But I think it will impact the cost conscious crowd and that is where I believe if MSFT gets its act together they can win, buy an app once in the Windows store and enjoy it across the entire ecosystem of devices. While I like the new Apple TV or Super Roku as called out by some reviewers I cannot justify the price of that device (as usual). The upgrade to Apple TV was long due but a 70% in price absolutely is not justified for what is now being offered in terms of functionality with the new Apple TV.

    iPad Pro - Imitation is the best form of flattery. Microsoft deserves kudos for once making a product that Apple felt compelled to copy. The keyboard is overpriced and is not as functional as the Type Cover 2. The Pencil (err....stylus...) looks great but needs charging and seems to have no latency versus the Surface Pen and has tilt support built in. I hope MSFT solves this with the N-Trig Pen and Surface 4 Pro. But I wonder if people realize that an A9 chip is no match for a i7 Skylake Intel processor right? I mean the MBP comes with that processor built in and runs OS X. MSFT offers the same processor, much more RAM and a full desktop OS for the same or cheaper price. I really was not at all impressed with the iPad Pro despite what the iSheep crowd would like us to believe.

    iPhone 6S and 6S Plus - No fast or wireless charging? 3D touch is great but in essence is right click for a mobile OS. Do we now need that level of interaction on something that should be very simple and easy to perform specifically with regards to a mobile OS? I think a better approach is to be able to accomplish task(s) with voice commands and I think both Google Now and Cortana will overcome the gimmickry on iOS Force Touch if executed in a meaningful manner. Live Photos, seriously this is an invention, after you poach away the PureView folks from Nokia once MSFT acquired them? On a bright note for us WC members, copying MSFT twice in one keynote shows us that MSFT is finally onto something right!

    That in a nutshell is my $0.02 on the fruit stand event.
    Time to go drink some apple flavored fruit punch laced with....

    This is how Apple treats their fans at their annual product launch. And boy do they eat it up by opening up really wide their...wallets every time.



    But the problem is that even when they have you thinking they invented something, it is just a new way to spin the fact that they pilfed someone else's idea...

    I have now seen about 6 Apple watches so far but not a single one with a lit up screen. The best pairing so far was a HTC M9 and a custom gold Moto X on a Delta flight attendant in the train at Minneapolis airport.

    Folks, these are three very quality reads. While there is some bias in them, it is a highly entertaining view of the seductive powers of the iFruit. Some days I think Eve had two fruits in her hand when she was tempting Adam...one of them was an iPhone...
