Many of you know about my Apple habit. This year is the first time where I've been able to watch a MacWorld, and have the money to do something more than gaze lovingly. My credit cards have been cowering in fear. They have survived for another day, however. All the rumours indicated that Apple were going to update their iBook and Mac mini lines with Intel chips, but what we got was a new iMac, and a new PowerBook (I refuse to call it a MacBook, as that just sounds stupid). I suppose it makes sense, as if you stuck Core Duo chips into the iBook or Mac mini, they'd out perform pretty much all of Apple's PowerPC range, which would cripple their sales while they were working on updating the rest of the line. While I was a little disappointed, Apple has made up for it with their new power supply. So clever! So rest easy, credit cards! You live to fight another day! Tomorrow: the beginning of a short series (well, you better hope it's short, really): The Animal Crossing Diaries!
