I'm wondering if anyone else is looking at the pattern of updates that Apple has been doing on their consumer Mac line-up over the last two years and thinking that Apple is trying to switch to a yearly update schedule. I remember a time when you could count on a couple of significant updates per year with maybe a price adjustment or two thrown in for good measure, but it looks like Apple may be going to a yearly update schedule, at least as far as the Mini and the iMac go. I don't understand why they would do that. The computer industry has always moved forward at a breakneck pace and Apple--let's be honest--hasn't exactly shown an ability to keep up. I can't imagine why they would make that worse by slowing the rate of updates. At this point, however, it's not hard to imagine the iMacs not being touched again until August. Of course, I'd love for Apple to prove me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.
