Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

The experiment is done, and Apple went in the direction I planned.

Wow, you saw that one coming. I had no idea you had so much pull with Apple.

Though they didn't go as extreme as I said right away, probably because it would have resulted in instant user riot.

Ah Man, they must have missed your memo on that one.


The facts : well, no touchscreen on the Macbook air right now, but that soldered flash memory, together with the non-removable battery introduced some times ago, and the disappearance of optical drive since the beginning of the Air line, clearly shows where future Apple hardware is heading, I think.

Wow those are some amazing "facts". Similar to the "fact" that I am indeed the President of the USA. Oh wait that's not a fact.


But where my previsions are most successful is with this new release of OSX. Let's see : praising the virtues of full screen applications, introducing an App Store, application menu... The only thing we lack is a hardware home button at the bottom of the screen.

Oh please, you haven't even seen the fargin OS yet. Steve showed only the App store. We don't even know if the OS in the Demo was indeed Lion. So if you are getting "previsions" about this, then you better get some "prevision" glasses!


This clearly is clearly a transitional release of Mac OS X aiming at a general move of the Mac line to iOS. Anyone arguing the contrary is a blatant and dishonest liar.

a blatant dishonest liar, hah? Wow how can anyone be a liar about something that has not happened and may never happen? How can you be called a liar for what amounts to a personal opinion?
