A few thoughts on the Apple Keynote

by Volker Weber

This was a one hour keynote in the small town hall, and as Tim Cook said, most likely the last one on site until Apple moves to the new campus. If you were invited you belonged to the inner circle. I wasn't and even if I were, it would be hard to say yes. The live stream is just too good. And there was nothing unexpected at all. Everything had been spilled before.

A few thoughts, in no particular order:

The big one is often what you do not see. No Jony Ive. Not on the stage, not in the audience.

iPhone SE looks to me like the final Windows Phone killer... :(.

No, that was the 950/XL. ;-)

Ipad Pad Pro - "from 599 USD"? (i know - no taxes)

In Germany it's very expensive : 689€ (32GB) / 869€ (128GB)
And: 109.- for Pencil and 169.- Keyboard.

All together: ~1150€

I love the idea of an (9.7) Ipad with Stylus which would be the perfect replacement for my Ipad Air. But sorry Apple, to expensive in my eyes. The Surface 4 is cheaper and is a "real" PC.

I was really hoping for updated MBPs. But no luck for me, now i have to buy an "old" design (and yes, i have to buy since me tricked out MBA does not have enough RAM capacity for the current job).

The 4/128 i5 Surface Pro 4 is currently on sale and Microsoft is including a "free" keyboard. If you do the math without the giveaway, they are not far apart. Then we get to the discussion about software. "Full PC" vs "touch software".
