PSA: 'For All Mankind' premieres early

Same for "Lessons in Chemistry" and "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters."

Today is officially World Television Day! So go watch some TV — after reading this newsletter, of course!

And it’s unofficially Apple-Box-Throwaway-Day — see the tweets below.

I just threw out all my Apple boxes. I recycled dozens of them going back several years.

It pained me, because Apple boxes aren’t ordinary boxes. They’re special boxes, thoughtfully designed (see today’s Steve Jobs quote below) and beautifully crafted.

But who in their right mind collects empty boxes, beautiful or no? I needed the space, so they had to go.

Note: This may have been a huge mistake. Several years ago, I wrote a story for Wired.com about an old Macintosh box that sold on eBay for $500, several times the worth of the computer that came in it.

The reason? Vintage computers are plentiful, but the boxes they came in are very rare.

Anyway, back to World TV Day: A handful of popular Apple TV+ shows are being moved up thanks to Thanksgiving falling on this Thursday.

So if you’ve been jonesing for the latest episodes of Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, Lessons in Chemistry or For All Mankind, the good news is that they are all premiering Wednesday instead of later in the week.

One more thing ...

When you open the box of an iPhone or iPad, we want that tactile experience to set the tone for how you perceive the product.
