    get over it already

    come on, it was just a special event that the mac web overhyped. apple did not even hype it that much, they just sent out invites and posted a blurb regarding cool new products.

    guess what, they're new products, the cool part is totally subjective, but still, calm down with the overblown "THEY'VE LET US DOWN, CRUCIFY THEM!"

    sorry for the rant but i just saw a headline story on slashdot about this:
    the story ended up being a dupe of course
    Can we just end this nonsense already? Oh and are you going to be disappointed if on April 1 we don't get the fullscreen ipod with the holographic touchscreen sensor thingamagig? I myself thrashed the mac mini on these here forums for having integrated intel graphics but this whole "apple is BS because their event was a letdown" has really

    If it was some big, huge announcement, they would've either used it at MacWorld or saved it until April 1st. MWSF is MacWorld for a reason...

    Besides, there's less than one month until Apple's 30th Anniversary. They'll do something...and I'm sure Steve will be very excited.:)

    I think the problem has less to do with the products and more to do with Apple's hype. A leather iPod case and a speaker worthy of a special event?

    Even the mini itself, while it may be a nice machine, is still just a rev of its entry level machine, with no outward changes. The initial mini was newsworthy because of its price point, this one wasn't.

    I think it's inevitable Apple will release more evolutionary and fewer revolutionary products as the PC industry has reached a level of technological maturity.

    i don't see Apple products declining in quality at all or even it leveling out. i see it slowly be surely increasing as time rolls on after the switch to intel.

    Yesterday: Build in US of A.
    Today: Designed by Apple in California.

    Who cares about the design? Are they too ashamed of the "Made in China" tag right after that?

    It's always been "Designed by Apple in California"...that isn't a recent development.

    I like the page on the G4 Processor in which it has a little diagram that it compares to the Pentium chip.
