Apple Yesterday, Steve Jobs of Apple held his usual keynote speech at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference at the Moscone Center, San Fransisco. I usually thoroughly enjoy Jobs's keynotes; they are a well-planned piece of theater, complete with drama, comedy, and even action. In between, of course, some new products are announced, and some meaningless figures are given (classic example of spin doctoring: use only the figures of your strongest market, in Apple's case, the US laptop market; ignore the rest). However, this time, the theater part seemed to far outweigh the new-products-part. And that's a shame. Note: The, Tuesday Eve Column.

wait for it... competative rivalry.

All of this whining about Apple's poking fun at Microsoft is getting old after just a day. Nobody truly believes that everything in Vista is a copy and everything in Leopard will be new (except for being new to the base OS X).

Not really.I believe to much has been scrapped from Vista and OSX has become more appealing.No postponing just delivered.

no, the poking fun is getting old. not to mention the people defending it. it isn't funny, it isn't cool, it is tired and sad and really lame.
