yesterday's announcement

I did not stay up late (early morning Sydney time) to watch Apple's “Hey Siri” special event live. I did watch it yesterday.

Apple Watch

So there's new Apple Hermès edition. Don't worry, I don't have Apple Watch, and not intend to buy one anytime soon.

iPad Pro Pencil

What is more exciting?

New iPad. The biggest iPad so far. And for the first time, Apple is building an iPad with stylus support.
The new iPad Pro is 12.9-inch, and it is just a fraction heavier than first generation iPad.
iPad Pro (Wi-Fi) weighs 713 grams or (Wi-Fi + Cellular) for 723 grams. While the original iPad weighs 680 grams for Wi-Fi model or 730grams for Wi-Fi + Cellular model. In other words, if you only compare Cellular model, it's about the same weight but the screen jumps from 9.7-inch to 12.9-inch.

Like current iPad Air 2, iPad Pro available in three colours: silver, gold and space grey. Apple also released iPad mini 4 which has iPad Air 2's power in a compact mini size.

Yes, I am interested in iPad Pro.

The new Apple TV looks exciting. Plenty of fun. I should get one once it's available.


New iPhone. Continuing the naming the tradition, the new iPhones are called iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Key features: 3D Touch, improved camera (12MP and 8MP front), new colour: rose gold. So it is available in 4 colours: gold, silver, space grey and rose gold. Pre-order tomorrow (12 September) and available on 25 September.

Also, the iCloud is going to be cheaper.
5GB data is still available for free, and 50GB is now only $0.99/month, 200GB $2.99/month and 1TB for just $9.99/month.

What does this mean to me? Any benefit for mean old guy? Can I give up my current IP?

5GB free storage is enough for you. You should get yourself a Kindle!

BTW, I have read two books now on my iPad Mini, and it's not that bad to read from! Just a bit heavy to hold.The iCloud thingo is just storage then? I thought it might be a cheap ISP!! Have a lovely warm Friday afternoon. And for goodness sake, get this blog software updated so it works quickly and doesn't duplicate all the time...LOL!!
