> New image pipeline that does over a trillion operations per photo.

There we go: stupid, incongruent e-peen measuring metric.

> New immersive wide angle camera interface that shows you both what the main camera sees and beyond the frame to the ultrawide.

Well, it's the second woman to take the stage. Also, it seems they are using just the first name to make it more informal and stuff...

> Cook back on stage. "These are just a few of the amazing stories I hear every day."

What about the ones about stock market, Cook?
