Hyperbole alert: Apple news to be ‘historic’

090914historic2

ABC News last night on its broadcast and this morning on its website is promising us that today’s gadget announcements by Apple will be “historic.”

Historic how? As in World War II, moon landing, 9/11 historic?

What could possibly make this Apple product announcement – or any gadget announcement, for that matter -- historic?

Well, let’s use our imaginations:

  • We might learn that the iPhone 6 will double as a teleportation device.
  • Apple’s new smartwatch could extend the day from 24 to 25 hours.
  • Steve Jobs walks out on stage.

That would be historic.
