    It remains to be seen if this pitch worked. Plenty of time for folks to try before they buy at stores...could be the desire-building approach Apple is seeking.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:33:29 PM
    Cook: All of our energy is on making the best products in the world that empower people and enrich their lives. This is what Apple is all about.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:33:32 PM
    Thanking the team
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:33:41 PM
    Cook: What you saw today is years of hard work in the making
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:33:55 PM
    Cook asks Apple employees to stand.

    The proof is in the pudding: how does this new OS work? Is it seamless or annoying? Fun or weird? Only way to know is to wear it for a while, like all smartwatches. But a few things stand out.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:34:12 PM
    Cook: There are thousands more standing up in Cupertino and many other place sin the world

    Except for the $10,000 version, it looks like the 12-inch MacBook is more expensive than any of these watches.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:34:16 PM
    Have a hands on area for all of you
  • Scott Stein 3/9/2015 6:34:26 PM
    The personal call-a-friend design, etc. Stay tuned for hands-on videos and more!
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:34:33 PM
    And that's all folks
  • Michelle Meyers 3/9/2015 6:36:24 PM

  • Tom 3/9/2015 6:37:23 PM

    No thanks...I'll stick with my Microsoft band.
  • Yumet 3/9/2015 6:39:06 PM
    Def more interested in the MacBook than the watch..
  • Cheesemonstah 3/9/2015 6:39:10 PM
  • itsJoeClark 3/9/2015 6:39:14 PM
    Not very impressed to be honest
  • ayush 3/9/2015 6:39:20 PM
    It's apple after all, people are still going to buy it
  • tellefb 3/9/2015 6:39:25 PM
    Most exciting was HBO Now and 12-inch MacBook. Watch announcement was weak.
  • sam sun 3/9/2015 6:39:29 PM
    549 for a watch ill buy a real watch
  • H 3/9/2015 6:39:35 PM
    is it water proof?
  • Jason 3/9/2015 6:39:44 PM
    I was looking for iphone 6s a no show not interested in the smartwatch at all.
  • rhys 3/9/2015 6:39:49 PM
    the macbook! I'm sold on that one
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:39:52 PM
  • Really 3/9/2015 6:39:54 PM
    The Watch is going to sell by the boatload in China. Yes we here in NA think that the watch is overpriced, but the $10k watch is going to sell like hotcakes in China.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:40:12 PM

    Apple demo room

  • AmpedPhoto 3/9/2015 6:40:20 PM
    I MAY have thought about it at the $350 pricepoint, but there's no chance I'd ever pay $1k for a bloody watch. No spank you...
  • retail person 3/9/2015 6:40:29 PM
    as a retail technology salesperson, I can tell you, people dont care how non-functional many apple devices can be, they purchase it as a status symbol. The 12in macbook will sell because it will be cool to have, not because it will be good.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:40:37 PM

    New MacBook. It's tiny.

  • TJ 3/9/2015 6:41:59 PM
    Presale is April 10
  • Matt 3/9/2015 6:42:00 PM
    To get what I want the pricing is too much. I think it looks great though!
  • spizzy 3/9/2015 6:42:03 PM
    No killer app here. It's cool, sure. But even at 349 it doesn't bring much new functionality for something that will be obsolete next year.
  • Andrew 3/9/2015 6:42:05 PM
    A little disappointed that there weren't many new details about the new watch. The new MacBook looks nice though!
  • moose 3/9/2015 6:42:19 PM
    Nothing new there - they're largely announcing apps that could be written for any smartphone, what about battery life? did I miss that or was it not mentioned?
  • Expected More 3/9/2015 6:42:25 PM
    The macBook line got really confusing. I wanted a new macBook Air, now not sure if I want a new improved Air or the new macBook. Hope CNET does the side-by-side comparison soon.
  • Björn Svensson 3/9/2015 6:42:37 PM
    I really llikethat new MacBook,but i'm a ittle bummed that Apple wont make a combined Laptop and Tabletlike the Yoga, where you can flip the screen all the way back and use it as a tablet.
  • buckeyedad 3/9/2015 6:42:49 PM
    so it's a watch, and it does stuff...
  • ammar 3/9/2015 6:42:53 PM
    didn't impress me at all , wAS WAITING FOR A WOW!! but it WAS NOTHING
  • emanon 3/9/2015 6:43:01 PM
    they would have made a killing if they started at $199
  • AmpedPhoto 3/9/2015 6:43:03 PM
    Looks like I'm getting a Pebble Color...
  • Loretta5ue 3/9/2015 6:43:11 PM
    iWatch - It needs GPS to replace a sport watch. garmins cost $400, but it won't replace until GPS & longer battery life.
  • Max Buondonno 3/9/2015 6:43:19 PM
    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for the new MacBook! The Apple Watch, well, it's apple and they're making a smartwatch that works with their phones. Hello Apple Edition Samsung Galaxy Gear.
  • emanon 3/9/2015 6:43:53 PM
    since apple pushed the health aspect of it, can you swim in it? can't do tri's with it.
