This is my first year as a Mac user and Im getting accustomed to having to look forward to big events hoping that something I want will be released. So far the year has been a disappointment the iPod mini release was at first exciting, but as an international customer, it seems Ill have to wait until the thing is outdated before I have any chance of getting one. Then I was hoping for the new iPods, but nothing at WWDC. Does this mean that the earliest possible release will be the Paris expo? Another gripe is the unreasonable price of a .Mac subscription - which mostly includes features I have no use for, but now seems more and more necessary to get all the touted OS features.
