Well, I'm still utterly unimpressed. But I have always been unimpressed by Apple products. It doesn't matter to them, they are experts at handwaving and marketeering. I agree that showmanship and marketing will upstage common sense every day of the year.

I'm still not a fan of mice and find windows cumbersome. This in spite of the fact that among my peers and colleagues I'm considered quite the computer geek. When you come right down to it, though, Apple didn't invent those concepts, Xerox did. Xerox just failed at marketing them. The foolish lawsuits between Apple and Microsoft soured me on the whole capitalist publicity and marketing scheme.

I have used Apple products. I have never liked them. Apple's closed marketing and distribution schemes have always been the major factor in that dislike. Their insistence on enforcing their view of the universe on developers and users alike rubs me the wrong way and always will.

So in the end, Apple to me is just another greedy capitalist corporation. And no, they don't seem particularly innovative to me. Instead they seem to be interested in flash without substance, just like Adobe.
