Apple drops a ball

Posted: March 3, 2009 in Mac, Technology

Clunk! That sound you can hear is a big ball being dropped in Cupertino as Apple underwhelmed with its latest product announcements. Sure, the iMac and Pro needed an update, and a more powerful Airport Extreme Base Sation and Time Capsule is more than welceom.  But a refreshed Mac Mini? At $599 for the smallest model? Apple not only missed the sweet spot for no-brainer purchase by at least $100 here but also missed the chance to do something radical that would combine the Mini and Apple TV as a very cool media centre. Not only that, there’s still no sign of a smaller Mac netbook-style product – soemthing the market seems to be screaming for. What’s going on? Or are there more surprises in the offing?
