Damn Straight, Steve!

Work work work. Still need to finish writing this presentation for the BUPC. Loads of stuff on the side. No rest for the wicked.

I was watching the WWDC keynote the other day, and have nothing more to say than the obvious "wow". Amazing stuff.

Speaking of which, I've just come across this video, after a few days of reading comparisons between Vista and Leopard (no contest, if you ask me), and what Steve is saying in this video still strikes me as amazingly true.

There. I hadn't posted anything on this blog that clearly identified me as a machead. Mission complete.

Hehe, glad to hear that you're an Apple fan - and nice presentation last week, by the way. Keynote, by any chance? ;-)

Re. Steve's "Microsoft has no taste" comment, I couldn't agree more. After many years of (reluctant) PC use I switched and have never looked back since. And to think I used to program the damn things...

To paraphrase an old joke, what was Microsoft's internal code name for Windows Vista? Answer: Mac OS X. (OK, maybe Windows 95 and Macintosh '89 was funnier. Perhaps I should just stick to the philosophy...)

Anyway, take it easy and hope to catch up with you again soon!

Indeed. Keynote 2, to be exact. Haven't got the money to upgrade to iWork '06 yet. Besides, iWork '07 is coming soon-ish.

Ditto. The added bonus is that Macs don't come with solitaire and minesweeper pre-installed, so I actually get work done.

Hehe. That's a pretty good one. If you have a moment, check out the WWDC '06 keynote (http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/aug_2006/event/index.html). The french dude cracks quite a few jokes about microsoft.

Will do. Nice seeing you at the conference.
