    It's a shame the iPhone Xr is so large versus someone coming from a 6, 7, or 8. My wife's 7 is still plenty capable and the Xr hasn't convinced her of anything that is a must have especially given the larger size and inconvenience that comes with it. I do hope they update the SE, maybe make a 4.5" or 5" version with an A12 and the Xr camera system for those that don't want to pay the Xs premium or settle on the Xr to save $200 but deal with the additional bulk.

    I think the MacBook Air is overpriced especially when you compare it to a Surface Laptop 2

    Is the Apple pricing increases anything to do with Trump's tariff on China, it must show through in prices at some stage.

    I don't think Apple has to bring MacOS apps to the iPad, they just want to. It's as if they wanted to prove that Job's Post-PC era has arrived by ironically transforming the iPad into a PC. Of course Job's vision of the iPad was a touch-only interface in a reasonably-sized package. It wasn't about keyboards, pencils, or jumbo sizes.

    Pricing the Mac Mini at 799 prices it out of range for those of us who just want an Mac OS device to test websites and/or compile XCode to create apps. Will be interesting to see if sales are as good as when there was a 399 option.

    Apple = an iOS company at this point.

    For me I choose the iPhone for security/privacy over anything else and essentially it is the best of no great choices. Same for my iPad, it is a consumption device that has the best apps, or the best of a not really great choices. I never got into Windows Phone, but I wish it had been successful so we had another option.

    I have a work provided 15inch Macbook Pro that is only 8 months old. I only use it for testing at this point.

    MacBook starts at 1299 not 999 which makes the whole thing more perplexing because that new MBA is 100 dollars less than the MacBook vs. being 200 dollars less as stated in the video.
