Apple, it better be good.

So late last week Apple announced that they were moving the release of Leopard (Mac OS 10.5) back until October. They basically announced that the iPhone OS and User Interface took more resources than originally needed, so they had to pull OS developers away from Leopard and put them on the iPhone. But of course we all know that the iPhone runs ‘the most sophisticated operating system ever’, so its all good, right?

I really like Apple, and you all know that. Id love to have an iPhone. But I am sick and tired of their ‘shock and awe’ tactics as of late. The iPhone is going to be damn cool, but remember your roots. We need to get an OS out first.

The jump from 10.2 to 10.3 was so-so. 10.3 to 10.4 was huge. 10.4 to 10.5 better blow that out of the water and then some. And from what I have seen ( I can not talk about my NDA stuff, but from what is publicly announced and leaked ), im still not all that impressed.

For them to have so much ‘media slander’ against Vista and Windows in general, to talk up all these ‘new’ features that are going to change the way we look at computers, and then for them to verbally come out an announce they are having to delay it (of course, after making fun of Microsoft for the same thing)…it better be worth that wait. Apple is going to put themselves in a very odd position if they can not live up to all this hype.

I hope for the best for them…I want to see Leopard blow the socks off Vista, and really live up to this hype. Apple has been able to do this before, and I dont doubt they can do it again.

Listening To: News coverage about VT Shootings. The media is REALLY starting to piss me off. At least my friends there are OK.

  1. A-freakin-men. I was really pissed to read that. First of all, I almost don’t believe that’s the real reason. If it is, that’s a pretty stupid business move. Hey, lets pull resources from our flagship product to work on something that’s not out, has so much hype it can never live up to, and will go into a market everyone and their brother has already watered down. Pure genius Apple.

    And yes, the media sucks. They’ll do _anything_ for attention these days…
