I saw part of the announcement stream.  I was, and still am, unimpressed.

As an Android user, I still don't see how the iPhone is as popular as it is, and from what I saw, not gonna be switching anytime soon.

The iPhone X: Pay $1000 for a phone that doesn't even have a 1440p display like all of Apple's direct competition has been using for three or four years now. And enjoy all of the great features like a 12 megapixel camera that is significantly lower quality than the 20+ megapixel cameras everyone else uses, wireless charging that Samsung has had since the Galaxy S5 or the facial recognition that not only did Samsung introduce with the Galaxy Note 7, but TOTALLY can't be abused by police just pointing your phone at your face while you're handcuffed so they can dig through your phone without a warrant or consent!

And best of all, they still insist on using a proprietary charging connector and pretending that go without a headphone jack is courageous.

In short, I switched to Android and never looked back.

Oh look, something else for people to line up around the block for.

Yawn.

I have an old Nokia flip-phone and I'll get a new phone once it breaks.

This was the most memorable moment about this new techno thingy.

Apple's new toy glitching in the sweaty paws of Apple exec Craig Federighi nervously holding a shit-eating grin.

Was it worse than the demo of the original iPhone? http://gizmodo.com/the-iphones-first-demo-was-buggy-as-hell-1441324523
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Well, when you use a fucking neural network to do the work of some basic fuzzy comparison and matrix math, of course its gonna have multiple fuck up points.
