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.

I see several possible explanations :
1/Apple doesn't care much about OSX anymore, now that they can see how much of a bigger cash cow iPods and iOS devices are. I'll see how right this is at this event.
2/They tried to distort the role of iTunes so horribly that they more or less reproduced Microsoft's move to integrate their web browser everywhere : in OSX, iTunes could have a much larger role internally than we can see, and be linked to a shitload of system libs, many of which have nothing to do with music, which makes porting it to another toolkit a nightmare.
