While it’s unimpressive their over marketing for a pencil and a keyboard is entertaining. It’s certainly going competitions with Microsoft surface pros.
Does anyone still watch TV? Well, Apple is making another push for your living with the New Apple TV. Here’s the gist of it, first being the New Apple TV will be powered by a dual core A8 processor chip which means your favorite shows will load faster. A new dedicated App store and Siri will be included in the new Apple TV allow you search and find your apps or shows via voice commands nothing like being able to talk to your TV eh?

No official release date for the New Apple TV yet.
Well a toast to another year of Apple Event. While it wasn't as impressive and innovative as most expected to be, the new iPhone 6s selling for 1K has gotten many to thinking is it really worth as much as a regular laptop or computer only time will tell when it releases on September 25,2015.
