Isn't it just typical?! Earlier today Steve Jobs at Apple Computer unveiled the new Mac Book Pro line of laptops built around Intel microprocessors. These machines are considerably faster than their iBook and PowerBook predecessors and look capable of performing all sorts of amazing computational feats. So why my ire? Because last Friday I splashed out on a brand new iBook G4 (Mac Book Amateur?) and it has now become obsolete in four days. This must be a record. Before buying my new machine I specifically asked (yes, it's a split infinitive; -don't interrupt me just now as I'm not in the mood for nit-pickery) if a new range of computers was due out soon. The answer was "We don't know". I bet you didn't. Bastards!
