Does anyone else wish they could put a handle into Tim Cook's back and wind him up so he goes just a wee bit faster?

Listening to Tim Cook is painful. I think I'd rather watch Steve Ballmer jump up and down on stage instead...
Er nothing is more painful than listening to Ballmer. :eek:

lame keynote?

Well, I was no big fan of Steve Jobs' keynotes, but I did admire his showmanship. Great Keynotes, no doubt.

But... is it just my perception, or was today's presentation extremely LAME?

I mean, regardless of how excited (or not) one can be for the new iPad, the keynote performers' style, rhythm and general organization was, IMO, just boring.

Or is it that this ***** doesn't bring the same excitement anymore? I mean, the will be "new" iCrap every year, new iOS, new OS X.... all with relatively marginal improvements over its predecessors. Rarely something groundbreaking...

Any thoughts?

What are we to make of the "touch" comment on the invitation? Yes, I understand that the display of the new iPad is beautiful, but what of the "touch" comment? What makes the new iPad more touch-worthy than iPads 1 and 2? I don't understand why they'd deliberately include that word. Perhaps I'm overlooking something.

Tim Cook: A new menu and higher resolution on our appleTV!
The rest of the world: So what?

Tim Cook: There new iPad has new apps and a very high resolution!
the rest of the world: So what?

Tim Cook: Apple, WOOHOO!
one man in the audience: -golf clap-

Seriously, there was nothing interesting about this keynote. The products were not surprising in any way. The improvements were just spec bumps as I see it. It didn't even seem like Tim Cook was excited about this.

Let's face it. This is becoming a hollow ritual in the post-Jobsian era. A high school drama student gets an audience more excited than this.
