Post-keynote follow-up...
Authored by: solipsism on Jan 12, '06 09:21:54AM

Nice article, Eduo. Quite long but I'm glad I decided to read it.

Nice data on the IR port, I didn't know Bluetooth was always on. I have a question about the iMac IR port. I thought it was behind the Apple symbol toward the bottom. If not, can someone post some proof of this so I read up on it. It would be much appreciated.

As for the name, I could careless what they called it as long as functions correctly. The name is the least important change and yet I here people complaining more about this than anything else. Is this really a deciding factor for people?

I'm quite happy to finally get an integrated camera on the Notebooks. Constantly carrying and having to setup a camera has always been a bit of a pain. I'm sure I'd use it more too now that it's inegrated.

What about the concerns of slightly less resolution (but the same for all intensive purposes) and the removal of the DL buring feature?

Yeah, I know it was lengthy, but somehow the parent post just triggered something in me. I'd started fuming much earlier with the lots and lots of disinformation around and couldn't take it any more.

Especially as most of the complaints were either knee-jerk reactions ("Gah! BAd nAMe!! BAD NamE!!"); self-righteous, self-justifying, obviously weak rants, ("Well, If apple can't implement FW800 then I guess I won't be upgrading my Tangerine iBook now, will I? The WHOLE reason I've been considering upgrading to a Powerbook is the FW800 port") or Disillusionment over exaggerated expectations generated by either wishful thinking ("But I *WANTED* Apple to include a magnetic iPod and two CD bays and 10 hours battery!") or by believing rumor sites have anything that even approaches serious journalism practices ("I can't believe Apple didn't come out with the Plasma Displays and the TV-receiving Intel Mac Minis" -I still can't believe people actually considered these as possibilities- )

As they say: "Armchair Generals have the advantage over their real-life counterparts in the they can say their pieces without the need for Intelligence to back it up".
