Gi - After the spotlights roam the stage and a pressure cooked exec plods on amidst unbefitting dub step and indifferent applause. After the awkward scripted deliveries through gritted grins, gifting .gif meme memories to the legions of nerds watching online. After the lights go down, then it’s time. Time for the big announcements.

We still remember.
