    RE: iMac Promises

    Dear Apple Management,
    Please give careful consideration to breaking promises made about the delivery of new iMacs. It’s been 5 years since the design has been updated. Five long years. It would be difficult to understand why a company, with the size and scope of Apple, run by supply chain genius, would risk infuriating thousands of loyal desktop Mac users, students, gamers and media professionals who have been more than patient waiting for this long overdue upgrade.

    We understand you want us to go portable, but alas, we will always love our desktops.

    Your Customers

    1. Dear Loyal Customers,

      We will ship on time, don’t you worry your pretty little head over it. You’ll get your shiny new toy in November I promise you, even if I have to fly down to the Foxconn facility to break a few heads. You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

      Sincerely yours,
      Cook, the man in the kitchen cooking up new stuff every day
