    C|NET said last week that Apple over-hyped the launch of two rather mediocre products in the grand scheme of things. Wow! Newsflash! I said the same thing the day before this article ran. Nice to see I’m not the only one who can see through the hype.

    To be completely fair Apple didn’t send this one out press-release style as they usually do, but if it wasn’t intended to be a normal high-profile affair it shouldn’t have been held in the Apple Town Hall in Cupertino, California, where the iPod was first unleashed. They also shouldn’t have had Steve Jobs’ doing the unveiling of what amounted to faster, shinier bits of the same ol’ Apple fare and a ghetto-blaster for your iPod.

      So, did you get this frigging book yet or what?

    "Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who have had the fortune of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all others. The inhabitants of the other spots reason like manner, of course..." -Emma Goldman (1869-1940 American Anarchist)
