What took you so long?

Apple since 1984, here.

We bought our first Apple in February of '85-- a beige Mac Plus WITH the luxurious external 20 mb SCSI hard drive. With the student discount through the TAMU Student Computing center that sweet package set us back about 4500 bucks, and that little beast kept chugging faithfully for more than ten years.

Since then I've added a Mac Classic, a Mac IIci, a Powermac 8500, a Bondi blue r2 iMac, two headless halfdome iMacs (including the 17" display baby who has never let me down once in three years from which I send this now), and a white G3 iBook.

For five glorious years in the mid-90s I was 100% Microsoft free and making money very happily, thank you.

In my life I think I've worked on a non-Apple PC for maybe -- maybe -- three hours total.

And that pleases me to no end.

Yes, all bow down to the iphone -- damn it, June can't come soon enough.
Though, that should give me plenty of time to save up for the 8gb version.

Did you catch Steve Jobs' keynote speech over at apple.com? Pretty cool stuff.

The man can shill, that's for damned sure.

I'll not be on the first wave of adoptees, as I have three issues:

1) current cell contract locks me in for a while longer

2) i'm not yet a fancy pants deep pocket writer guy

3) I'm betting in a few months that the second gen phones come out with more memory and lower prices

Still... that's some sexy piece of gear.

I have the original Mac (came with 128 K floppy capacity but we later upgraded to 512) and it still works like a dream. Love that baby.

I must have one right now as well.

I just finished watching the entire keynote with that introduction. Just amazing. I probably won't get one because work pays for my cellphone...BUT I will seriously entertain the idea of getting our IT guys to support this. Every single person in my small company was talking about this...god, I want one. NOW.

Sorry, I completely fail to understand the attraction.
