Apple Releases Brief, Fleeting Moment Of Excitement

And they won’t be disappointed; this already vanishing glimmer of pleasure is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Apple.” According to Turnham, rumors are already swirling that Apple engineers are working on a slimmer, briefer moment of excitement projected for release next fall.
