Yes, but it was implied that the iPod touch WOULD be getting it. Wchいswhyイを鵜ldはヴェベエンすrpリセd位f位tはんd't.
And apparently I typed too fast and switched to Romaji. I'm leaving it.
Which is why I would have been surprised if it hadn't.
Come on your nitpicking and all of your Apple "surprises" are things they didn't do, not things they did.
I'm not only not nitpicking, but the nature
of the surprises also isn't the point. That they were
You can't tell me that the white MacBook continuing to exist doesn't matter in the "big scheme of things". Nor can you tell me that forcing 30" Cinema Display users to buy the expensive and horribly buggy Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI adapter if they wanted to buy a (then-) updated Mac Mini didn't matter. Heck yes, it did. Apple dropping the full-size DVI without a newer equivalent display solution in place was a mistake.
iPod classic, eh. If people with FLAC libraries were still buying it, more power to them. I was just surprised that enough were being sold to continue production. I will certainly be even MORE surprised if it isn't discontinued THIS year, its ten-year anniversary.
And the iPad 2's argument is the same as the iPod touch's.
By the sounds of it nothing Apple does in the future will impress you
Certainly not. I'd be impressed by an A5 Apple TV with apps (not actually apps... CHANNELS
! A la carte TV channels packaged as downloadable apps! Get JUST The Science Channel, Discovery, History, and NASA without paying $60 a month for satellite and 400 channels you'll never watch!).
I'd be impressed by a redesigned Mac Pro with Thunderbolt PCIe graphics cards that makes the server crowd happy again.
I'd be surprised
by Apple stating a data plan is no longer required to use an iPhone. I realize they're not the ones currently dictating such, but, again, it would be surprising
to see them start to do so.
Most of the things I'd be surprised at Apple doing are things that they would absolutely never do. Hence the surprise. They'll stick to meeting my expectations for the time being. I don't see, say, the removal of ALL PORTS but Thunderbolt on new Macs happening any time soon, and I'd like that, but I understand why they don't do it, and I would be surprised
if they did.
