Apple's Spring Forward event happened yesterday at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco – the big news at the event was the Apple Watch release date and cost, but there were a few other interesting announcements as well – here's a quick rundown in case you missed the event:
• Apple Watch coming April 24 starting at $349
• Apple TV price drop from $99 to $69.
• HBO Now - $14.99/mo. will start out on Apple TV
• Apple Pay now works with 700,000 retailers and 2500 banks (Coke machines next)
• New MacBook

  • Thin (1/2 inch)
  • Retina display
  • Fanless
  • USB-C port (USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA, charging in one port)
