I was really hoping for new headline apps surprise. The whole event was really weak.

that's what i thought too, that they'd show off all the new apps that will be released this friday.
im not getting wnidows rt, but still, that would have been nice for the peple getting windows rt

Hmm. Expected something ... new. This wasn't anything new, more of just a launch primer.

I guess I now know what to expect Monday so I can curb my enthusiasm.

can't watch that girl....I hate tech girls

Hey Kids - I think you'll find that Julie Larsen-Green is what we adults call a WOMAN, and that she holds down a job which involves more responsibility than many people ever experience. You'll find out all about women when you're old enough for your balls to drop, and you'll discover that it'll take more than the capacity to j*rk off to Lara Croft in your mom's basement to be able to relate to them as other functioning adults as well.
Good luck!!

She was nervous. Have you ever been in front of a room full of journalists that are basically just waiting for you to **** up? No? Maybe you should STFU.
