Post-keynote follow-up...
Authored by: eduo on Jan 13, '06 02:30:20AM

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".
