    Keep the pressure on!

    Maybe we can nag Apple into a perpetual chase for new insanely great features and products. Say it often enough and even they will believe its true.

    I don't consider myself a loser. Although I agree that he has the right to his opinion.

    That was great!

    "The forums are ablaze with vitriolic rage. Haters pan the device for being less powerful than a Cray X1 while zealots counter that it is both smaller and lighter than a Buick Regal."

    That part about Business Week was pretty good too.

    Sigh... and here I sit listening to music over airtunes on my pre-ordered Airport Express wondering if it'll there'll be an update that allows it to stream audio from DVD player, and if so, will it encode Dolby 5.1 audio?

    I had my post thought out when I was mid-way through:

    "Yeah, that pretty much sums it up."

    And to think I was worrying about offending people for that comment. ;)

    PC Product Cycle

    It could be worse: The Equivalent process for PC:

    New Processor released

    New Processor recalled as faulty

    New Processor released again

    No-one notices

    More beige boxes arrive in shops

    CNET says they're great great great! and Apple is doomed.

    NEWS.COM predicts further decline in Apple Marketshare.

    Microsoft writes more bloated software that consumes the new available processor cycles without a trace

    Cubicle Drones everywhere continue to use their massively overpowered machines to read email (slowly)

    Yet another first person shooter is written, now rendering more stupid stuff per second than ever before.

    Game Kiddies demand faster processors right now so they can pretend to die/kill faster.

    New processor released etc etc

    More fun in the Mac camp I think!

    Ditto. I chuckled out loud when I read that one. I've read "nerd porn." I feel dirty.

    This guy knows the Mac rumour scene pretty well. His ranting reminded me of Maddox's wit, if Maddox were an observant Mac nerd.

    It is 100% true and should be taken as being full of facts.

    Damn! It's so true

    Also when the guy talked about the "wait for rev. b" people, he forgot a bit
    those posters within 2 days after release :

    " New device, BUY NOW OR WAIT??" :eek:

    :p :p :p

    I hate those! :cool:

    groundless speculation! bedwetting of tidal proportions! whoo-HOO! :D ...maybe I shouldn't be cheering that second one. :p

    Yes, it's absolutely dead-on. But that's what Apple gets for building its brand around designing products to engage people at an emotional level: People respond to the anything the company does on an emotional level directly proportional to their engagement.

    Powerbooks on Tuesday, ha! I'll just be happy if we really do see redesigned iMacs in September. :rolleyes:
