Due to the lack of recent activity on Bogopolis, I have been brought in as a quest Blogger.
Given such an illustrious forum, I feel that I should say something meaningful and thought provoking, or perhaps something controversial. From the realm of current events, I was walking past the Apple Store yesterday and there was a line of 7 people right out the door. it turns out it was the [not-so-]much anticipated release of Apple’s new operating system Leopard.
Typically anything with the Apple emblem on it will sell like hot cakes. I think Steve Jobs could come out with the iCrap and people would still wait in line for it. But should we be so quick to embrace a new operating system? My answer is no.
My friend Nathan was one of the seven people who waited in line, and good old Leopard has far from fulfilled his Mac dreams. In fact, it is still not on his computer… it will not upload!
Not everything Apple makes is perfect, and especially with a new operating system, you are much better off waiting a few months until all the bugs are worked out.
Nathan, on behalf of Macintosh, Steve Jobs, and all the Apple-freaks, I apologize and I hope some time this week you can install Leopard so that you can help them identify all the bugs.
