If you are an Apple nerd such as myself, your eyes were glued to the screen today for Apple's annual iOS event. The most exciting moment for me was the reveal of the new Apple TV, which will have an app store and ability to download third party video apps and services. Also, the 3D touch on the new iPhones seems really cool (like a right click for your phone) but for me, the iPad Pro seems like a bust (just buy a new computer for that price.)
Anyway, the biggest surprise for me, was during the Apple TV presentation when Apple rep Jennifer Folds was discussing the music capabilities of the Apple TV and then a Sevendust song came on, with her saying "You probably wouldn't have guessed it, but I'm a huge metalhead and this is one of my favorite bands." Then, for a few seconds, the audio for the new Sevendust track "Thank You" blasted through the event.
We posted on Twitter about it and shortly after, Sevendust re-tweeted our tweet and added thanks to the folks at Apple:
