Oh, what? You mean you missed the part in the Apple Event when they talked about the Apple TV update? Where were you? Eating lunch? Too bad – it was great and wholly nonexistent…
Despite rumors, predictions, and expectations for an Apple TV update at today’s Apple Event, Apple fanboys/girls around the world were left hanging on their Apple trees, eventually falling to the ground to rot away, their flesh and spirit consumed by the mere passing of time. It’s been too long since Apple TV has had a significant update. The current model essentially is essentially the same as the model it released in March 2012, utilizing a dated A5 chip – the same one used in iPhone 4S and iPad 2. And, by Apple-standards (or even modern technological standards), that’s way too outdated.
Sure, Apple unveiled its new iPad models (which I won’t even get to here, since that’s a whole other issue entirely), but people were really looking forward to a rehaul of the Apple TV. In light of this major failure on Apple’s part, we present to you various ways people on Twitter responded to the egregious Apple TV oversight:
Many Unfulfilled Dreams
So. No Apple TV update. No iPad Pro. No MacBook Air Retina. Kind of surprised on the first one.

Thanks for Cursing the World, Wizard
Part me of hopes Apple says absolutely nothing about TV today. Disappointment can be healthy. — Sammy the Walrus IV (@SammyWalrusIV) October 16, 2014
