The Apple "fun" meeting

The meeting had 3 things: a waste of cow, an overpriced white noisemaker, and a white doohickey that makes pictures come up on a screen (preeetty). First, the waste of cow. Well, it's a leather case. For your iPod. For $100. Yeah. At least it costs $358 less then Sir Jobs' outfit at the meeting...which wasn't a waste of was a waste of cotton...So it'll come in 3 sizes: a 30GB, a 60GB, and a Nano one. Seriously, who in their right mind would pay $100 for a case for anything? Jobs calls it a leather case, I call it a waste of cow, CNN calls it a controversy [or....not]. Next is the white noisemaker. Oh wait, the hi-fi noisemaker. That stands for High Fidelity if you care, but you don't. Ok, so it's a hi-fi stereo for your iPod. One size fits all.'s elastic. Supposedly it's small - but I don't buy that, I know it's just a ploy. I see that this is all a scheme. To do what? I don't know. But it's a scheme. A $350 scheme. Yeah. $350 for a white noisemaker. As a wise man once said "This is pile of crap". So yeah, a hi-fi stereo for your iPod for $350 with an infared remote. Yeah. Ok, to the last part of the "fun" meeting. You know those white boxes called Mac Minis? Well guess what. They're making them new. And improved. And Intel. With Intel Inside stickers. With probably no Intel Inside. Uhhuh. There are two versions of these "new" Mac Minis: the 1.5 ghz one for $600 and the dual 1.66 ghz one for $800. It's a no-brainer. The $800 one is teh better deal. The specs aren't bad for the price, however, the video RAM is shared, so don't be expecting to play Smack A Chicken on this Mac. You need the G4 for that. Also, they'll now have 4 USB ports and the new Front Row software. So yeah. A white box. For $800. How this is different from the $350 one. I don't know. That is one of the great mysteries of the world. How this was a fun meeting. Another great mystery of the world. You figure them out. I'm too lazy. Bye.
