The Internet’s Best Reactions To The Apple Pencil
Apple introduced several new updates and products at Wednesday’s annual developers event in San Francisco, but none have arguably garnered as much attention as the Apple Pencil.
The $99 device -- remember, this is basically a pencil -- was created for the new iPad Pro and can be used for activities like “fine art illustration and detailed 3-D design.“
But despite Apple’s boasts, the pencil sparked ridicule online, with many pointing out that the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was against products that required a stylus.
In Apple's defense (and for a Team Android guy like myself) this is the only defense.......pretty much everything gets ridiculed on social media.
Nevertheless, here are my top 10 hilarious reactions on Twitter to the announcement:
“Apple released a $99 pencil called the “Apple Pencil.“ This s**t better do my homework for me for that much money.“
“The Apple Pencil will debut at $999,999.99.“
“I hope the next version is called the Apple No.2 Pencil.“
“Apple has invented the Apple Pencil, so you can use an iPad like paper. For a similar experience, write on some paper with a f**king pencil."
“A pencil that costs more than a dollar. #TerribleGiftsForA4YearOld“
“This is the most dramatic commercial for a pencil of all time #AppleEvent #ApplePencil“
“Quote from Steve Jobs in 2007: ’Nobody wants a stylus. So let’s not use a stylus.’“
“#ApplePencil The people who want to revive calligraphy must be losing their minds #applepencil“
“Apple Pencil is a College Humor video.“
“I feel I might lose my #ApplePencil. Can I attach it somewhere for safe-keeping and how much does AppleCare cost for Apple Pencil?“
And Apple even came out with a fancy commercial-type video!
