Americans as well as people all 'round the planet, were excited — really, really excited — to see the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch.

I don’t smoke, but I really want one right about now. During Tim Cook’s Tuesday, September 9 Apple Event keynote address, Americans as well as people all ’round the planet, were excited — really, really excited — to see the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and, then in the penultimate moment, the Apple Watch.

If Tuesday’s Apple Event had wrapped up after the introduction of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Pay, many would have been satisfied. However, with a flourish reminiscent of Apple founder Steve Jobs, current CEO Tim Cook stepped out of his predecessor’s shadow to put his own dent in the universe.

“But we’re not quite finished yet,” said Tim Cook at roughly 55:20 into his Keynote Address. “We have one more thing.”

And, the crowd roared its approval and so did Twitter. People at the event and watching online unleashed torrents of Tweets referencing the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Pay and, then, Apple Watch — the explosions of red you see toward the end of the animated Tweet map of the US.

Oh, baby, don’t stop!

Again, although Apple Pay and Apple Watch could ultimately fail in the marketplace, Tim Cook has at the very least come out of Steve Jobs shadow, delivering a memorable keynote address with products that will go down in history, one way or another…

What’s your take?

  1. Really? I thought Tim and the Apple gand screwed the pooch! The feed was a horrifying mess.

    Apple Pay…Maybe cool, depends on how many retailers decide to buy the readers…

    Apple watch… May be cool. I wanted so much to love it and maybe once I try one I will… But it just seemed like a teeny tiny 2nd screen for my iPhone. Now my wrist and my pocket will be buzzing.

    If it was a total standalone phone etc… That would have me lining up to buy it,,, But at first glance it seemed… ho hum… I hope I change my mind by version 3!

  2. Everyone knows Samsung is garbage now, but Apple missed a few things with the watch.

    1. Needs to be tethered to an iPhone. This will turn off interested android users.

    2. No front facing camera or mic.

    3. Lack of Touch ID

    4. Lack of exclusive features. Almost everything can be done on a cheap android except fitness, which they didn’t stress.

    There’s more but needless to say he has a point.

  3. Turn off Android users? As far as Apple is concerned, you’re either inside the walled garden or you don’t exist.

    Android user says, “I feel sorry for you”
    iPhone user says, “I don’t think about you at all.”
