Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

"""
BTW, the reality is that THEY are leading the innovation as every body is always comparing its OS to Mac OS X.

"Innovation" is a four letter word, in my book. Please don't use it. Or, if you do, either put it in quotes or explain that you are *using* the word and not abusing it in this, exceptional, instance.

When I was in school, the printing press and the Jacquard loom were what we thought of as great innovations... not a new closeness setting on our Dads' electric razors.

The sooner we get back to "Doing Cool Stuff" and sharing our triumphs, rather than "Innovating" and issuing press releases about it, the better off we will all be.

Unfortunately, the word "innovation" itself is likely ruined for at least a generation's time.

Agreed. Same with the acronym "FUD". If there's a term or phrase that can compete with "innovation" as far as its overuse in IT, it's "FUD".
