How about the time they had to hide the Sony engineer brought in to pitch 3.5 floppies for the Mac. Jobs was insisting on sticking with the Lisa "twiggy" drives, so they kept ferrying this poor engineer from lab to office to closet so Jobs wouldn't know he was here from Japan, only to have Jobs run into him at a local drug store magazine rack. He later commented matter-of-factly how he had seen so-and-so at the store with no great concern...
Thank you jeebus. iWork does hold docs in the cloud - I regularly go back and forth, auto sync between IWork on my iPhone and my MacBook. If you mean live editing through a browser... Not sure I'd want that. Google Docs is a far cry from a responsive, creamy-UI-goodness office suite. Instead of WYSIWYG it't more like What You See Might Be What You Get As Long As You And Your Collaborator Have The Same Browser and OS.... Why, just today I was told that "Oh, you need to...
What this case needs is Susan and Grover, a board with four things on it: a bowl of water, a Samsung 700, an iPhone and an iPhone3.  Cue the music:  "One of These Things Is Not Like The Other..."
The joke is "The optimist sees the glass half full.  The pessimist sees the glass half empty.  The engineer sees the glass designed and built twice as large as needed." - or - "Dear Optimist and Pessimist.  While you were arguing over the glass, I drank the water.  Signed, The Pragmatist."
Lost 1.5 hours of battery life with ML on my MacBook 6,1
Mail takes a long time to clear unread flags, and is now responding to all messages with only one of my addresses, despite any way of configuring the reply-via settings.  Also always CCs me on every message I reply to.  This was not the case under Lion. 
MacBook 6,1 here.  Battery time fell off a cliff under ML.  1.5 - 2 hours less on a full charge.  
That's nothing - 150,000 people went home thinking they'd bought a car only to find out they were sold a Yugo.  
25% of Americans don't believe in evolution.  25% believe in astrology.  20% (last checked in 1999) would tell you the sun orbits the earth.  So in my mind, that 35% might be a lowball.  
Very nice.  Mid-2009 MacBook White 2.26 4/250 much snappier - huge improvement in Safari.  Not sure Reminders and Notes are up to their iOS brethren, but it beats opening Mail or iCal when you need to remember something.  Wish Notifications was a 4-finger swipe on its side like Dashboard is, but hey, right edge swipe works too...  Alas, no AirPlay Mirroring for me.  Bummer.
