Sooo, anything special happen this week? Anything make the news? Oh yeah, I think there was a little something called Apple and they unveiled a new device or two. Soooo, what'd you think? We've got some recaps of what went down and what you need to know in case you missed it, so strap in to relive the moments of the week that was.
Despite a rocky start to Apple's livestream yesterday, everyone is still buzzing about the new iPhone 6 models, Apple Pay, and the forthcoming Apple Watch. Wednesday's Morning Report has a few items you might have missed in the excitement, including rumors of a Path acquisition, the possibility of Discover joining Apple Pay, and the fate of the iPod classic.

With WWDC 2014 right around the weekend corner (literally), heck no you don't want to shut your computer down.
