Never have I cared so little about an Apple event. It's either I'm getting old or Apple's getting boring.

Every year, the growing refrain of "where the hell is the innovation?" from the peanut gallery gets louder.

I sincerely hope they have more than watch bands to talk about.

That is surprisingly early especially considering that the rumours are pointing to very weak announcement.
Not an event that I am excited about but I hope there will be few surprises.
Would love to see rMBP 17 brought back to life :D
