iNerd alert. Three word summary: Big bad accessories. Steve Jobs brought a whole bag of goodies to Macworld 2007, including John Mayer (not for sale, yet). While I think that the iPhone is super sweet (touch screen and all), at $600+ and packaged with Cingular (AKA Rogers CAN), it’s not really gonna fly with me. How will I ever find my way to lulu in my SUV without GPS? Ditto for the new and improved iPods. Anything that is cooler than my prehistoric pink Mini brings tears to my eyes. What made up for this: Steve burning the Zune. 2% market share. Impressive.
Here are the things that I am hot for:
1. Get n’sync with Apple Tv ($349 CAN) 40 GB HD, HDMI, ethernet, audio, analog, wireless 802.11… all good things. Get hooked up. One better in an ideal world: Syncing with all the Front Row, not just iTunes.
2. Go Go Airport Extreme Base station! ($179 CAN) 802.11n. Faster = Better. Shared HD, Loves it.
But Steve, where is Leopard? and iLife ’07? and iWork ’07? Oh Steve, it hurts me to run Microsoft Office on my sleek lil’ mac laptop. Surely you do not want me to have to use Excel day after day. Get this damnable stylized green “x” out of my dock. Forever. You can shove the “universal” Microsoft Office 2008 where the sun don’t shine.
We need a “lock-down” on priorities Steve. Maybe someone is getting a little greedy over market shares at Apple Inc.
