This is new from Instagram, at least to me: asking me to take a quiz about ads I like.

(Doesn’t Facebook already know what I like by tracking me across apps and the web?)

In a decade of covering #AppleEvent launches, I’ve never left one with more open questions than today.

- What will Apple TV+ cost?
- Will Apple TV channels save any $$ vs just subscribing directly to apps?
- Will Apple bundle these services like Prime?

What does Apple services world stand for, if not saving money?

Simplicity, privacy, curation, and family sharing. Is that enough when we can get many of the same services from others on our iPhones and TVs?

My impressions of today’s #AppleEvent @washingtonpost:

Apple is becoming a kind of online club. The question is: Why should we join?

Certainly not to save money.

We’re reaching the end of this #AppleEvent, and still don’t have a price for Apple TV+ — or a bundle that pulls them all together.

Hmmm. Oprah: “We all need to heal our divisions ... that’s is why I have joined forces with Apple

Ah this is better: “Because they’re in a billion pockets y’all.”

Most honest moment of the day, #AppleEvent

Why do the Parkland kids tweet? “After everything happened, the world wanted to put us in a bubble and keep us away from everything. But no, we popped the bubble,” told me. “It has to be done because who else is going to do it?” https://t.co/90bLUQJjrZ

If you’ve been holding on to an old iPhone 6, 6s or 7, I don’t blame you.

But you might be amazed at how much the camera has improved in the iPhone XR. Here’s a comparison with the iPhone 6 I took of a challenging sunset. https://t.co/jmytEm6t4r
