Last week, Apple sent out press invitations for members of the press corps to attend their March 7th press announcement.
I know my seven loyal readers will be shocked when they hear this, but brace yourselves…here goes…
I didn’t get an invitation.
I know, I know.
How could this happen?
I don’t know.
I’ve been asking myself that very question, and I’m still drawing a blank.
I mean, I waited patiently by my mailbox for days.
I thought that perhaps it was delivered to the wrong address.
So I knocked on my neighbors’ doors asking if they had inadvertently received anything with a 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California return address.
Then I thought, they may have sent my invitation in another format.
Was it sent by email?
Perhaps it was buried in the spam folder?
Did they send a carrier pigeon?
Was Apple trying to reach me via smoke signal?
I’m at a complete loss.
I find it unacceptable that someone of MY stature (with at least eleven readers - that I know of) has yet to receive an invitation.
But you know what?
Ever since Steve passed, things have been in a bit of disarray.
While I won’t be able to transmit the highs and lows of Apple’s highly anticipated announcements live and direct, I will still provide some (time-delayed) insight to the goings-ons over there tomorrow.
To be honest, I’m really only interested in the announcement as it relates to the iPad 3.
What features are real?
Which are hype?
What will it look like?
When will it actually drop?
Enough with the rumors!
No more supposition!
The people want the truth!
I want the truth!
We’ll forgive Apple’s faux pas, this time.
But next time, I don’t know if I can be so forgiving.
Apple press corps people, listen up!
The next time there’s a press announcement…I want an invitation!
My fifteen readers will be forever grateful!
