What am I going out to buy?

  • Looking forward to the new software updates as always
  • Will purchase an iPad Mini 3 just because life is too short not to have one, but will stick with my iPad Air and keyboard case in that category
  • Thinking about an iMac with Retina as a Christmas gift to myself – I currently use a MacBook Pro docked on my desk and would replace that with the iMac

What was I wanting to hear but did not?

  • Date on AppleWatch
  • Further pricing information on AppleWatch
  • A new Apple TV
  • Always hoping for a new category or major form factor announcement
