Head on over to Macworld.com. I’ve posted a long piece in which I attach a dollar value to every major new feature of Leopard.
So how much is Leopard worth? If it were a collection of third-party utilities, I’ve got it at $409. And I’m sorry to have to tell you that you could have added a zero to that if your uncle hadn’t cleaned off that rich, 250-year-old patina. Because collectors die for that sort of stuff.
I’m usually pretty critical of my own stuff, so I’m always pleased when I find myself laughing at something I wrote just 48 hours earlier:
And now we have the de-wussification of Mail. Mail was once a candy-apple red Mazda Miata. Now it’s a Ford pickup with a gun rack and a rear-window decal of a cartoon Calvin peeing all over the Microsoft Entourage icon.
Y’know, every now and then, the Plinko chip lands in the $10,000 slot.
