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 runs a company, you're free to purchase and use his company's products or you are not.

Laptops at the end of the day are nothing but nice mobile cases for a circuit board containing silicon chips... they're definitively not an ethos or the expected meaning of life. Good grief... Some of you need to get a grip (and a life).

Strawman again.
"

No, no it's not. "Staw man" implies the statement is intentionally misleading the argument by altering the parameters. However, Steve Jobs exact response to your style of hysteria is along the lines of "We make products. We like them. You might not. Buy them if you want. If not, buy something else." Jobs *openly* tells people not to buy Apple products when same people criticise them. His attitude is very much the exact position that the poster mentions. This is the company line. Not every employee might share it, but this is the company "ideal", if you like. As a Apple hater, you don't have to agree, you don't have to like it - but they are the facts.
