The company announced the new, thinner iPad Air, a new iPad Mini complete with Retina screen and, last but certainly not least, the new Mac Pro – another nail in the coffin of the disk drive. But will anyone pay $3,000 for this ‘space-age-y trash can’? How about a red one for only $60,000?
More importantly, Apple fired a shot across Microsoft’s bow by offering its latest operating system, OS X Mavericks, and iWorks and iLife software suites for nothing to those buying new devices. Although whether this tactic works remains to be seen; iWorks has never really been a winner in the productivity software market and long-time users of the software have been complaining about missing features.
If you’re after the real nitty-gritty of Apple’s recent announcement, Mac Rumors gives a blow-by-blow account of exactly what was revealed.
No Apple announcement would be complete, however, without the inevitable comedic backlash.
