Great Expectations


So, it seems that I’m going to have to explain reality to the MacMacs yet again. I know you’re all busy dusting off your hair-shirts and preparing for the inevitable round of self-flagellation that you so love to indulge in after every Apple announcement. But please, for the love of Moloch, try and actually think for a minute here.

Apple is pulling out of Macworld Conference and Expo after this year. Ascribe to that whatever conspiracy theory makes your fuzzy little heads warm; but it’s a simple fact.Corollaryto that fact; Steve Jobs wasn’t going to deliver the Keynote. Again, come up with whatever “moon-landing-was-a-hoax” theory you want to to explain that; but it’s a fact.

So, given those facts; did you really, really, think that Apple was going to make some earth-shattering announcements today? Did you honestly believe that this was going to be anything other than the most banal and hum-drum Keynote since Jobs returned. Why, in the name of all that’s unholy would Apple go and prove that everyone who crucified them for pulling out of the Expo was right.

Really, use your fracking brains you nimrods!
