[Thursday, lunchtime] I just went to the Apple store in Dallas to see, in person, some of the things featured in this week's keynote. What a lame experience! I didn't really expect that they'd have a MacBook Pro on display, though I was hoping they did. They didn't. They didn't have a new iMac, either. Not for sale or display. Not until 1/17. That was a bit of a surprise. Most amazingly, none of the display machines had any of the new software installed. No iLife, no iWork. Nothing. The installed software was all the '05 stuff. They had the new software for sale, but the display computers hadn't been re-imaged with the new software from Apple corporate. What a waste of a lunch. I might try the other Dallas area Apple store tomorrow at lunch, but after today's experience, I'll certainly call first.
