    So Apple made many announcements today, some expected, some unexpected. How did you feel about the long Keynote? What are you excited for? What did you wish for? Discuss below.

    What an absolute poor year to be honest.

    I liked the changes with iOS 11 on the iPad. Haven't really looked at much else.

    This was probably one of my favorite additions. The iPad Pro seems to be going the direction it should have from the start. Although similar tech exists, the automatic speaker tuning/adjustments based on room seemed like a very cool idea. If it works the way they say it does, it may be worth it.

    The iMac Pro, knowing it has a Vega, seems like a perfect machine learning machine assuming it supports AMD's new libraries and APIs for ML development. Lot os ML sprinkled everywhere for their Keynote. Although they'll simply fall to the background, the fact that they are continuing this is interesting. I am well aware that other companies do ML too; it's just an area of research for me.

    A lot of people felt this way. There were many incremental things here. I enjoy hearing about the ML front that they are working on and where they are doing it (ML is an area of research for me). The audiophile in me likes using ML to dynamically adjust the speakers based on environment/room (I'm aware that others are doing similar stuff).

    The Watch updates were mostly meh, the new watch faces were kind of boring. Mac refreshes were just that, refreshes rather than updates (with the exception of the iMac Pro).
