Of course they did. The Finder did suck big time though, good thing they released 10.1 just 6 months later with a way faster Finder.

Who's quote is that? Is that from from a Walt Disney cartoon?

Given unlimited resources sure they would.

Straight from me to you. I just don't get all the negativity around here. Certainly not limited to you, I have my fair share of it as well, but why would you call it 'ridiculous'? Just take a look at how cameras were made, back in the day, and maybe you'd think this is actually a beautiful and perhaps nostalgic design, possibly even appreciate it for what it is.

I should've differentiated website creators v. companies who hire contractors to spit out websites.

I'm with the guy who doesn't want to pay an obsessive carpenter to spend a weekend polishing the back of a drawer I'll never see. That's a bit too much like Ayn Rand's Fountainhead, I think it's for the benefit of the carpenter, not me. Doesn't Apple's board have anything to say about using all that Apple engineering time on vanity products that will never be made by Apple? This is getting like Apple's famous lack of focus in the 90's.

If Apple had 2000 hours of engineering time to throw away, I wish they would have used them creating a free Apple OS9 simulator that would run on the latest hardware. Now that would be cool.

Good luck getting $6m for that playskool Leica.

To each his/her own. I for one like it when they go completely bazurk over details, even the ones I possibly never get to see. "You'd know the back hasn't been painted, even though you'd never get to see it."

Jungmark says it's not a life or death situation. Spoken like a true job holder. If you were the owner of a business you might see both the difficulties generated by the bland appearance and the inconsistent performance of many apps (surprisingly it's the Apple apps yhat are inconsistent...not the purchased apps) in a different light.
