I've just realized something major: Apple has entirely changed their colour scheme for 2005. Forget 2004 being the 20th anniversary of the Mac - it was really "The Year of Blue". The Airport Express and iMac were both displayed on the Apple website and in their (small) ad campaigns against a blue background (which also served as the AE's packaging colour. Well what did Apple REALLY spend the last few months doing? Picking out a new colour! That's why they didn't have time to put a screen on the iPod shuffle (although I'm buying one anyways, lol). I hereby announce 2005 "The Year of Green". It's all over the iPod shuffle packaging and promotion page, and even iLife '05 with it's whole garden thing (of which I am not a fan). In other news, has anyone in Canada been able to get through to the store? I get a server error message whenever I try both yesterday and today. And I NEED the reassurance of iLife and iWork (which has a SERIOUS edu discount price under "Special Offers") and my fricking iPod shuffle that I'd assured myself I wasn't going to buy and yet am now. It's the hypnoticness of the green.
