The iPad Mini Announcement: The Un-Story.

The un-story is the story that isn’t told during the announcement itself and the one which the company might just as well prefer not be told at all. Apple Marketing loses a bit of its discipline.

The Apple iPhone 5 Announcement: The Un-Story

Everybody covers the story of a product announcement. Its easy. Just re-arrange the stuff they said on stage in your own words. What is harder to cover is the un-story.
