On Monday, Apple wowed the tech world again by showing off its new laptops and smartwatch.
The best way to do an Apple event like this is to watch Twitter during it. Naturally, the #AppleLive hashtag was trending with hundreds of tweets, some of them really funny. It’s like having a comedy act in one ear while Apple CEO Tim Cook talks in the other.
