And frankly I think that Applecare warranty sucks. People pay a premium for Macs as it is. Apple's nickel and diming everything is going to come back and bite them in the ass.
What I find interesting is that after MWSF and WWDC, the world would talk about Apple's new products.
I saw none of that excitement in Apple's small press conferences for products such as the iPod Hi-Fi and the new iPods.
