    Preorders are starting today at 3pm for both devices. I'm assuming it's EDT since that's the timezone they announced the event on but I'm not sure.

    Missed the whole dang thing. Stupid morning meeting. Guess I'll have to wait for it to be uploaded to youtube since it won't let me go back on the stream at all. Interested to see all of the specifics for myself, but I know I'm not getting any of the devices announced today.

    It was pretty boring. Save the 45 minutes and just read a write up.

    Lame. Supposedly you are going to be able to preorder at 3pm EDT (I'm assuming the timezone because that's what they announced the stream with)

    And the whole Samsung pay thing. We pretty much knew all that. What I wanted to see was an explanation of how it actually works. Do you wave your phone over the reader? Does it have to be right on it? How does the process work to ACTUALLY use it.

    I'll sum it up. Nowt Note5= best ever note with bigger screen in a smaller package,s pen does more now with air command and writing notes with screen not even being awake.
    S6 Edge, they didn't even have a real working one to show its features but instead used videos of artists renditions and videos of videos and games being played.
    S pen, kinda cool new stuff, better looking home button on both.
    Male speaker who touted Note5 looked like Roger Goodell and female speaker, about 6 Edge, liked like Michelle Obama.
    No real specifics given about either beyond eye candy.

    And all the Samsung Pay stuff we already knew about.
    And then showed a short video of the next Gear appearing to be Tizen and saying it would be announced in Sept in Berlin.

    I'd already gotten distracted and cut it off by then.
    Did anyone else notice the buzz words "for the fans" quite a few times?
