Apple In this day and age of iOS this and iPad that you'd nearly forget it, but the gadget maker from Cupertino actually makes personal computers and an accompanying operating system as well. It's been nearly three years since the last substantial release, so it's about time: Apple has just announced a press event titled 'Back to Mac', with a lion on the invite.

Actually, I think Thom's right here (even if he is a Fiona Apple fan). It does not at all imply that Finder is Cocoa-based.

Nope just two separate sentences, one sentence complains about the crappy finder, the next talks about Apple moving the remainder of the apps to the new framework.

No, it is just crappy writing.

It took me a double take, since the writer expected the reader to be able to read his mind and figure out when in that paragraph he had decided to switch context. Apparently.

I'm English and read it the same way as the American; the way Thom intended it to read.

Perhaps it wasn't the best flowing paragraph, but it wasn't poor English either.
