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.

The 'system restore' drive is the last straw. It's as good as a reset button now.

You're upset because they provide a restore thumb drive instead of a restore DVD?

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.

I'd hate to hear what you think of SSDs.

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!

Apple has had small laptops for decades, are you new here?

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.

Is your post a joke? If not I'm concerned that there is some medication that you forgot to take.
