Tonight, President Obama’s Teleprompter will address the nation, and tell us various lies about the economy and the budget and the future of the country and whatnot. And I’ll be liveblogging that, natch. But first: the day’s really important address to the nation!
I’m talking, of course, about Apple’s “our latest creation” event this morning, at which Dear Leader Jobs will unveil his latest creation, the Jesus Tablet, which will single-handedly save the publishing industry, the global economy, journalism, the written word, planet Pandora, and health-care reform. Soon, you’ll be able to see Senator Scott Brown posing naked for Cosmo on a 10-inch touchscreen! The future is now, people.
Anyway, I digress. The point is, at 11:00 AM Mountain Time (1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific), Apple will hold its much-hyped event to announce a bunch of crap nobody cares about (new version of iLife, new MacBooks, blah blah blah) followed by “one more thing,” a.k.a. the OMG TABLET COMPUTER THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD — and this is the thread for comments and updates about said event.
Meanwhile, to the extent I tweet about what’s happening, my tweets will appear in the window below, rather than in new blog posts. [UPDATE: Live-Tweeting over, so the window below is now displaying tweets in "archive" format, i.e., chronological order instead of reverse chronological order.]
Y’all are, of course, invited to add your thoughts in comments on this post. Will the Tablet be awesome? Useless? Awesomely useless? Will it be called the iPad? iSlate? iTablet? iJesus? Discuss!
