The Apple Product Cycle

Just something funny. A brief excerpt:

The haters offer their assessment. The forums are ablaze with vitriolic rage. Haters pan the device for being less powerful than a Cray X1 while zealots counter that it is both smaller and lighter than a Buick Regal. The virtual slap-fight goes on and on, until obscure technical nuances like, “Will it play multiplexed Ogg Vorbis streams?” become matters of life and death.

And in the meantime, billions go on with their little lives, never knowing they're missing such worldshaking events!

Thanks for the chuckle. Perhaps William Shatner needs to make the rounds again, "Get a life, people!" ;-)
