Apple recently held one of its epic annual press events to show off a host of new products. To be fair, most of the products on show were merely updates of existing hardware, but inviting the world’s best technology journalists ensures the company positive coverage regardless.

We chose to cover the event a little differently, offering a hype-free guide to everything Apple A Hype-Free Guide to the Latest Apple Event... [Tech News Digest] A Hype-Free Guide to the Latest Apple Event... [Tech News Digest] It's an all-Apple edition of Tech News Digest, with a look at everything Apple revealed at its latest event. Albeit minus the hype lumped in by other publications. Read More threw at us. However, even without the hype, some of the new Apple products might just be worth getting excited about. And we want to know which one has your pulse racing.

Browsing On Your Mobile

To answer this week’s question please scroll down the page until you see the poll staring back at you. But first, we need to look at the results from last week, when we asked, “Which Mobile Browser Do You Currently Use? Which Mobile Browser Do You Currently Use? [MakeUseOf Poll] Which Mobile Browser Do You Currently Use? [MakeUseOf Poll] There are plenty of mobile Web browsers out there to try, but which do you currently use for browsing on the go? Welcome to this week's MakeUseOf Poll. Read More

Out of a total of 1,170 votes, 45.2% chose Google Chrome, 12.3% chose Mozilla Firefox, 8.1% chose Apple Safari, 6.7% chose Internet Explorer, 5% chose Dolphin, 4.7% chose Opera, 4.2% chose Android Browser, 0.8% chose Puffin, 0.3% chose Amazon Silk, 12.2% chose Other, and 0.5% chose I Don’t Browse the Web on Mobile Devices!

This is a strong win for Chrome, with almost half of the people who voted choosing Google’s Web browser. There are no real surprises with the rest of the order either, with Firefox coming in second, and Safari coming in third. We suspect Opera would have done better had we remembered to include it from the start, which may also explain the high number of votes for “Other”.

I’ve tried a few browsers over the years, including Opera, Dolphin and firefox but I always find myself going back to Google Chrome. I know it’s chunky and not the fastest but it works for me. It has all my bookmarks from my laptop/desktop in one handy place. I know how it works, due to using it for years and years… and on the very rare occasion I use my phone for web searches, Chrome is the one for me.

As good as phones and tablets are, using a browser on a “proper” machine like a laptop or desktop doesn’t compare. Maybe it’s because my eyes are failing in my old age.

We chose this comment because we suspect it addresses the question of why Chrome is so popular. Some people have issues with Chrome It's Time To Break Up With Google Chrome It's Time To Break Up With Google Chrome As a big fan of Google Chrome for a long time, I finally decided it was time for us to break up. It came down to overall performance, customization, and extensions. Read More , regardless of what machine they’re using it on, but others see it as the default browser, especially on Android. And it does do its job, nine times out of 10.

    Just a quick question. How come that NONE of these polls, all over the internet, include the iPod Touch? It's an amazing product, and it's under $500, and it most definitely was 2015. Come on people. If you're gonna put up a poll like this, at least include every device that Apple released that year.

    Looking at the poll results, I can easily conclude that all people like Apple products. Most people have chosen "None of the Above" which means that day, night, morning, evening and even in dreams, they think of Apple only. They hate it for no reason whatsoever. By choosing that option they have proved that Apple is doing something right. They know the inferior devices they use are nowhere near Apple devices but they don't want to say it. They think they will trick people into thinking that they are anti-Apple but they forgot truth doesn't need any feet to stand.

    The new AppleTV compares unfavorably with the less expensive 2014 version of the Amazon FireTV, let alone the updated model that will be available in a couple weeks.

    The ipad Pro and Pencil are clones of products available in the Windows and Android ecosystems that are additionally hampered by an operating system fundamentally incompatible with productivity software due to lack of filesystem access or a fully functional equivalent. If your definition of work can be accomplished entirely by access to web pages, by remote access to a more functional computer or in a single document editor, that's great, but there are cheaper devices you could use to achieve the same results.

    There's nothing particularly interesting about another generation of new Apple phones. I'm glad they finally made one with a large screen, but that didn't happen in this hardware generation, it's just a refinement of an existing product.

    And the watch? It's a smartwatch. It has crummy battery life and more of the same dubious utility as every other smartwatch. Yay.

    The only thing Apple has done in the last few years that I'm willing to credit is finally adding goddamned lowercase keys to the display on it on-screen keyboard.

    I'm actually interested in the iPod touch. An A8 chip has put this device in the same league as the last generation iPhones. It could very well be an entertainment device instead of my phone as to let my phone last longer than a day of use.
