  1. What I’ve learned from Apple this year…

    1. Don’t update right away. I’m going to delay iTunes 7.4 because of 7.3. I spent my iPhone weekend trying to figure out why my iTunes library wouldn’t save. Video podcasts.

    2. Don’t be an early adapter. First, I buy the AppleTV when it comes out. I waited since ’06 for it. It was the piece that was missing from my iTunes/iPod/Digital life. It was a great product. A few months later, a larger… a much larger… hard drive appears. All I want is to have the USB port active so I can add an external HD. I’m on the outside looking in. I’m an apple fan because of their attention to detail and the ease of use for the consumer. I get burnt here. Then, I wait 6 months for an iPhone. I’m quoted one price. Two months later, the price drops $200. It’s the risk I take, but that’s a huge drop in such a short time. Don’t fall for the iPhone trap. The 16 GB phone is coming in Jan.

    3. When apple says release in a certain month, they mean the very last day of the month. iPhone, June 29th. Leopard release, Oct 31 which is a Wednesday. Trust me on that.

    4. There was a time when Apple said here is this cool product and guess what, go buy it now. In Jan, we were shown AppleTV and iPhone. Delayed until Feb/March and June/July. Serious delays in Leopard. In Sept, they show us Ringtones, and iPodTouch. Delayed. We have to wait for the iTunes store on the iPhone. That should have been a day of update. They show us Starbucks… What’s the deal? Not available until 2009 in my area. That was a serious downer.

    I’m just venting… the no beatles (even though the event image was a perfect Sgt. Peppers set up) was really disappointing. The iPhone price drop hurt the worse. The $7 stock price drop sucked. No Leopard yet. The USB port on my AppleTV is still not active.

    I will say… it’s still better to be an apple fan than a Microsoft fan.

    I’m surprised no one is complaining about the $.99 ringtone price. I’m sure Steve had to do this to make the record companies happy. That one doesn’t bother me.
