At the event, Tim Cook had the excitable gall to waffle on about "adventurous and cutting-edge performers" -- gosh, Serena Williams and Paul McCartney both use Macs -- yet omitted to mention how little Apple had done for the Mac lately.
And how even less of it had been good.
Apple's presenters kept going on about what customers have been asking for. Why, those customers wonder, has it taken so long?
Oh, the phones are more important, right?
My current Air looks at the new one and is envious of its fuller screen. The aluminum bezels have gone. The display has staggered into the modern world with Retina. Yet it appears there's only one size, the 13.3-inch screen.
My 11-inch screen MacBook Air bows gracefully and hopes I'll be able to deal with something a little bigger.
But not heavier. It's 0.25 lbs lighter. I wonder if I'll be able to feel it. I wonder if I'll be able to deal with the Force Touch Trackpad.
