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.

Again, it's a restore drive, not a repair drive.
That's what offends me.

But they call it a "Software Reinstall Drive" not a repair drive, so what is your beef with a name?

"Reinstall" is actually a further confirmation of what 'restore' would have indicated.
That they don't support repair, but rather only a full system wipe.
Again, ludicrous in this day and age.
