Well wouldn’t ya just know it. Two weeks after receiving my iBook, Apple ups the specs to a 1 Ghz processor and doubles the memory capability. Thanks for nothing.
Such is (i)life. Thanks everyone for your OS X tips, and to Andy & Jay for last night’s timely SkillSwap. In a weird way the past fortnight evokes memories of holidays in foreign climes: everything’s different when you get there, but the weather’s beautiful, the food’s fantastic and the locals are friendly; after a two weeks it feels like home and you don’t want to leave.
Why oh why can’t Apple make these announcements in advance and give consumers a chance? Sure, Apple won’t sell many machines in the interim but those lost purchases will be made a few weeks later. It’s got to be better than customers – especially those new to Apple – being made to feel gullible and conned.
