Apple…

I don’t like posting on Apple… can’t be bothered with the niche who are blinded by good looks over substance – and who will wake up pretty soon on an entirely proprietary and closed platform… Dell doesn’t compete with Apple for anything other than mind share.

Frank Shaw mirrors my views on Apple’s announcements of the past week.  To which I would add…

  1. Not hard to build a thinner notebook when you take everything out.
  2. Batteries do matter
  3. No docking station was a mega mistake
  4. Apple TV was more interesting… but how are sales going? I have an Apple TV hooked up to a MiniMac on one of my systems.  What I’ve discovered is that my Dell XPS One running Raphsody, Pandora, Last FM etc… is a much better way to go… I am free to move my media about.  TV works better…

I fundamentally disagree with Steve Jobs that people are reading less. Connecting books to reading is like using running as a proxy for all exercise.  We are reading more than ever, just not necessarily on paper…
