Editorial Bob Cringeley makes a bold statement in a blog post responding to Apple's iCloud announcement: "Jobs is going to sacrifice the Macintosh in order to kill Windows." He says, "The incumbent platform today is Windows because it is in Windows machines that nearly all of our data and our ability to use that data have been trapped. But the Apple announcement changes all that. Suddenly the competition isn't about platforms at all, but about data, with that data being crunched on a variety of platforms through the use of cheap downloaded apps."

This "hard time keeping up with demand" means nothing, it's a very old marketing trick. I'm sure that even with Vista Microsoft dared to use the "oh man we can't supply enough" trick.

And as for parents buying fragile devices which start at $500 to kids, well... It's their money. And their kids. But I think it's insane, and I'm sure I'm not the only one doing so.
