Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

Steve Jobs further shows his true colours as a _non_-benevolent dictator.
The 'system restore' drive is the last straw. It's as good as a reset button now.
Flash storage integrated into the machine? We're moving closer and closer to their 'real' computers being as closed, _non_-standard and draconian as their phones.

Oh, and a 11.6" Air? I thought netbooks were a dead-end, Steve? Ah, but it can't be a netbook because it costs a fortune! BRILLIANT!

If I could afford the consequences, I'd punch the bastard in the face.
I can't, though, so he's safe from me, physically.
I can rant on the internet all I want, though.
