    So it's a marketing publication instead of news?

    Hahaha, no no.
    Just the most interesting thing that happened today :)

    In case of the Face ID, for example, I was kinda sarcastic regarding security

    That Mac Mini sounds cool. Any MacBook Pro or non-Pro iPad news?

    (Not that I'm planning on blowing that kind of money again too soon...)

    Unfortunately that's all that Apple announced today.
    Let's see what happens in the future...
    I'd love to see another iPad Mini!

    MacBook Air! Now even harder to keep from bending, denying, or otherwise mutilating! (But you can lose it more easily, because it's now harder to keep out of small slot-like spaces that you can't get things out of!)

    Did they contaminate the air with that God-awful touchbar?

    <@bahua>
    No touchbar :)

    Was waiting to see the satirical comments or sarcasm while reading the blatantly underwhelming specs and the lack of innovation. I am disappoint.

    @arcadesdude no one expects innovation from Apple so there's no room for sarcasm. Apple's only key area is marketing.

    128gb ssd? That will only fit like 2 painal compilations on it.

    This "news posts" feels rather biased in its tone

    T2 chip: because we want even our speakers to have DRM on it.
