Good evening readers,


We're feeling remarkable, unmatched, breathtaking, gorgeous, beautiful, amazing, and many more things! Obviously in a mood for superlatives today ;) After all the Apple Event was on last night.


The product line-up this time, as expected, was incremental. Bigger iPhone and a bigger Apple Watch which can now do an ECG (diagnostic angle in future?). Interesting to see the company customize its offering for China, allowing 2 physical SIM slots for iPhones there vs dual eSIM for rest of the world. Recommend reading this article by Bloomberg which came out today morning. India still doesn't appear much on the map. Perhaps at $1,099 a piece, no wonder.


That being said, events by the world's most valuable company form a lesson in slick and gorgeous (heartfelt this time) presentation. Though must confess we miss Steve Jobs' one man show vs. the much more 'democratic' style of Tim Cook.
