It looks like Apple is best positioned to win the "Where Are the Women?" award this year, given the total absence of women on stage at their product rollout last week.

When it's all said and done, you've been good to me, and I am thankful for our special bond. It's clear to me that leaving you would be too much for me to bear. After all, I'm certainly not the first woman in history to be tempted by an apple.
