I remember when apple used to be about productivity, functionality, simplicity. But ever since apple has started catering to the masses, they have overlooked the true supporters - the "real" crowd so to speak. A few obvious examples of this: - exclusion of firewire in the new macbooks - exclusion of FW 400 in the new MBP - No Matte option for the new MBP's - New super glossy screens, which pretty much act as a $1500 mirror - New super glossy LED backlight cinema displays - making everything super complicated with the new "displayport"...can't even run apple's own hardware on the older acd's, and vice versa. in addition, i finally realized today that apple just released the in-ear headphones. I was looking forward to these for the volume control, only to find out that they don't work with apple's most expensive portable device, the iphone 3g. whatever happened to "it just works"
