Apple To Hold Major Event On September 9th: Apple TV And Siri Are The Stars

 Apple September 9th 2015 Event

It will be a Year to the Day and Minute when Apple hosts it’s huge event on Wednesday, September 9th at 10:00 AM Pacific in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

And for the first time in forever, I will be away from my virtual desk and cannot live blog the event. How can this be?  Poor planning on my part – or multi- tasking which clearly went out of my control. 

However, you can watch the event on Apple.Com or stream it via your Apple TV. 

And, speaking of Apple TV, get ready to be dazzled by an all-new, Siri-enabled Apple TV, one which will take your entertainment preferences to the next level. Or next several levels.  And, if we believe the rumours, this new Apple TV will come equipped with a new remote and Siri capability which will make surfing for shows, music, gaming etc. incredibly easy and seamless. 

Also, set for the grand unveiling is the new IPhone, iPad Pro and Watch OS2.  Additionally, the availability of iOS 9 and OS X update El Capitan will be revealed. 

Apparently, the new phone will be named iPhone 6 S. Again with the “S”. What does this S stand for?  $$$$$$?   Or is it a tribute to Apple Co-Founder and CEO, the late Steve Jobs.  Please enlighten me Apple or somebody out in the blogosphere hit the comments below and have your say. I am confused! 
And if, like me, you cannot watch the event in real time – oh my goodness, I am dying inside just saying these words – you can stream it later on by clicking on Apple.Com or the Apple Event App on your Apple TV.  

Poor Apple TV 3 – the September 9th Event will quite possibly be one of the last things I view on it. I will be all over that new Apple TV unit and handing over its pre-decessor to family members. 

If you are watching live, feel free to jump in and add updates in the comments section below. 

Apple TV Streaming Service Is Coming Your Way Sooner Than Later. 

 Apple TV Get ready to cut the cord – the cable cord that is!   According to the New York Post, Apple Inc. honchos are in final negotiations with the major U.S. networks – ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX – to offer consumers live streaming television broadcast via their little black hockey puck known as the Apple TV Unit. 

This has been a monumental feat for Apple.  In hindsight, the development of iTunes and Apple Music for music streaming must seem like a walk in the park compared to the copyright clearance and financial negotiations encountered when dealing with the television industry people.

WWDC 15 Promises To  Address Your Home And Entertainment Needs

Well, folks, another year, another World Wide Developer Conference in the very near horizon. But, as much I love these Apple get – togethers, I am beyond “bummed” that the anticipated redo of the Apple TV unit is quite possibly cancelled. Yes, cancelled. Again. 

Why? 

Because television content providers aka the TV Networks are making life a living hell for Apple and its consumers.  Boy, is this story ever getting old and annoying. When will the networks release themselves from the dinosaur age and embrace all that technology can offer its consumer? 

One answer: Money. It makes the world go round. Just not ours.  Read the rest of this entry

The wait for the highly anticipated Apple Watch is over and out!  

Starting today, Apple Watch is available online or you can book a “try -on ” appointment at a local Apple Store near you.  

There are three basic models from which to choose: 

The Apple Sport ($449.00 and $519.00, depending on case size). The Apple Sport, with an aluminium band, is available in 10 models, so you should have no trouble choosing one that suits your style and personality. 

The Apple Watch ($699.00 to $1459.00, depending on case size and model).  This Classic Apple Watch is made of gorgeous stainless steel and just happens to be my favourite. And, it comes with 20 models from which to choose. 

The Apple Edition ($13,000 to $22,000, depending on your bank account).  This gorgeous Apple Watch which will never see the light of day in my house unless I win a lottery, is made of 18 carat gold and has 8 luscious models from which to choose. 

I will probably purchase the cheapest model, unless I can do some creative budgeting at my end. That – or I am praying that this GTG Blog goes viral and hits the big time. 

Whatever the case, so to speak, I am “in”. The question is – are you?  Have you ordered or tried on the Apple Watch?  Please take pictures and share all in the comments section below.
