THIS.  THIS.  THIS.   It's 100% legal not to mention brilliant to copy Apple's GOAL of creating elegant simplicity for users of their products.  Most companies try to make hardware and software that is capable of doing things.  Apple creates hardware and software that give users the ability to do things.  The difference may sound tiny, but in reality, it's huge.
I'm sure these new ads will be effective.  They're fine.  The problem, if it's fair to call it a problem, is that the Get A Mac ads weren't just effective.  They were iconic, and they changed the way other companies advertise products.  They're still being mimicked today and will be for years to come.  By comparison, these new ads are boring.  But judged by themselves, they're probably quite effective.
This one was the easiest Mac OS upgrade I ever made.  The only annoyance was the slowdown while Spotlight was indexing indexing indexing.
Wow, 15 minutes in, I'm seeing almost no progress on my ML download.  This one's going to take a whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiillllle.  Ah well.  It'll be worth it.
WTF?!  I can't install ML on my LISA?  Oh it better run on my Quadra or I'm gonna be pissed.
...new dock?
I wonder how Notes will compare to Notational Velocity.  What I REALLY want is a notes app that's designed like iTunes, but with folders and smart folders instead of playlists.  Notational Velocity is awesome, but dumping all notes into one folder with no sumbfolders for organization makes as much sense as dumping all mp3s into one folder without the artist/album subfolders.
I live in Portland.  The NW 23rd Ave. Apple store that got rejected was a thing of beauty.  It would have done a lot to bring even more foot traffic to 23rd.  I do wonder though...  had the 23rd store been built, would Apple still be building this huge beauty downtown?  Or would Apple have gone with a more modest space?   I'm excited about this one.  It'll be great for downtown.
"AT&T CEO says it's 'too early' to talk about 3G FaceTime fees"   That's like a neighbor asking "How's your wife doing?" and you reply "It's too early to talk about divorce or getting a mistress."
In other news:  there's still a Yahoo!  Who knew...?
