So I have a real love hate relationship with computers. I really enjoy them, and how they let me edit and keep track of my photos, have the world at my fingertips, waste a whole day in bed and conduct my business, but I hate them in the fact they seem so weird for mankind to use. I feel this way about anything really created since the automobile.
Anyways, I was really excited when I found out when Sep. 9th was the date for the “Next Apple Event”. I have been following all the rumors and speculation about new MacBooks, MacBook Pros, iMacs, Cinema displays, touch tablets, and Steve Jobs death. So I was excited to see if they were finally updating a lot of their product in need of an overhaul and if Steve Jobs would be giving the presentation with his head in a jar like in Futurama. On the day of Sep 9th I was at work, so I was checking my favorite Mac sites to keep up with the info was being released.
As much as I really am enjoying the Genius feature in iTunes and as cool, and colorful the new iPods are, I was overall disappointed with the event. Don’t get me wrong I am really jealous of the new iPod Touch, and wish mine had the speakers and slimmer design, but this was all an appetizer to me.
I wanted some new meat from Apple. A total overhaul on outdated products or the announcement of new products would have satisfied my hunger. I guess we will have to wait until October to see if anything new is going to come out for the Christmas season. Until then I will make 100,000 playlist and watch the new Visualizer with my stoner friends.
