Steve Jobs needs to stop making predictions he can’t hit

“Well, 12 months will have elapsed on June 23, 2004, two weeks from today, and Apple has just announced their new Power Mac G5 line with the top of the line Dual 2.5GHz Power Mac G5 ‘expected to be available in July,’ according to Apple’s press release. This will put Apple’s fastest Power Mac G5 at Dual 2.0 GHz on June 23, 2004.
