I hate Tim Cook. The pricing for the new iPads is a disaster, and he has some nerve attempting to sell the iPad 2 for $400. And what is up with the "Air"? Was there really a reason for that?

Gotta say. Phil Schiller is a disaster at these keynotes. I've been giving him the benefit of the doubt for the last few, but he sucks the energy out of the room every time with his imprecise, weird, stilted cadence, and his constant mistakes and unfunny mumblings. He also comes off as arrogant.

They should take his keynote privileges away. He is not a good spokesman. He was always ok enough when SJ was carrying the presentation. Now he just makes everybody look bad.

I could understand when the guys who work at software and OS development not being the best communicators, they get too nervous or still unfamiliar with the 'stage', but for a chief of marketing to be so unexciting to see it is unforgivable. It is his job to get the developers and consumers excited and to tell them why they need it, he failed so miserably. He is repetitive in the most boring way. For Chris sake, he just reveal the ipad in the most unthought out way, the biggest change of the new ipad is the new thin body (don't even talk about the unnecessary name cluster 'ipad air'), and he just showed the ipad air appearance immediately without any preamps and just showed in a video where it look just like the previous ipad mini. I know in fact the design is very similar but that's why the marketing guy should first show us how impossible it is to shave off anymore from the previous version. He did it totally the other way around talk about the design detail after people already are underwhelmed...

All I can say is that in Apple's standard, he is just not good enough. And without Steve now, if they don't quickly find someone brilliant to add to the marketing team, Apple will very much be like their keynote today, repetitive and predictable.

They should make an education only model then with no cameras and price it for less and not even have it available to buy on the Apple online store.

That's really a pretty good idea. Not sure if Apple wants to manage another SKU though.

Thanks for letting us know. We didn't know if you watched it live or not.

I have grown quite fond of Craig Federighi's style of presentation over the past years. Eddy Cue's was nice as well. It's been pointed out already, but I also thought Phil Schiller was just not that interesting. And after the 'can't innovate anymore, my ass' line he dropped at the WWDC I've been fed up with him honestly.

They really need the Mac OSX guy to just give the whole Keynote. Everyone else is scary bad.
