Patrick is mad at me…

He’s really bent that he isn’t going to be able to be near an Apple store next week. Steve Jobs has him wrapped around his little finger. Seriously. That kid checks the Apple site about three times a day hoping to find new information. Reads Engadget and Gizmodo. Listens to his favorite Dawn and Drew (cause they were marked “explicit” in iTunes and then he grew to appreciate their humor) and the MacCast (cause, well, guess).

I’m sure right now he’s reading blogs like TUAW, AppleWatch, Cult of Mac, The Apple Core, MacSlash, or MacSurfer (my favorite).

What are the MacHeads talking about today? They are going crazy over the banner hanging at Moscone trying to read secret signals into that.

Apple is really positioned well to take over the consumer marketplace. Sure is a change from the 1990s when magazines told the faithful to “Pray.”

So, why is Patrick pissed at me? Cause he wanted to watch Steve Jobs’ keynote and be at the Apple store first thing to buy his new Mac. (We promised him a new portable if he got all A’s, which he did). Instead we’re going to be “off the grid” until next Saturday in Montana.

Speaking of Montana. I don’t have my EVDO card. It got packed accidentally and our movers won’t arrive until after we leave for Montana this afternoon. Crud. I guess fate wanted me to truely get “off the grid.”

Anyway, I will have my cell phone and we’re hanging out with 40 other geeks, so I’m sure we’ll hear all the details about Steve Jobs’ latest stuff.

Maybe if he’s I’m a good kid we’ll stop at the Apple Store in Utah on the way back.

Hey, Patrick, why don’t you load up Steve Wozniak’s speech from AlwaysOn last week on your iBook for our trip? People who were there said it was one of his best they’d seen him give.

  5. Robert, weaning yourself from Microsoft won’t be entirely difficult. There are 12-step programs available. Vista is DOA, but once you go Mac, you won’t ever go back. It’s great to see there is hope for the younger generation. Listen to that wise son of yours.

  8. The Merom MacBooks will not be available on Monday so why not teach your son some patience. The Keynote will be available after or at least in summary on other sites.

  11. After reading all this, I come to understand that trade secret is a trade secret, no matter whether it is M$ or apple. So why try to distinguish between apple and Microsoft?? And why penalize only M$?????

  12. the Woz talk was awful. if that’s hi “best,” he cleared a very low bar. the kid interviewing him had no context, didn’t seem to know much at all about the industry and for the “benefit” of the seasoned VCs in the audience, asked Woz repeatedly to elaborate on what it was like to start a business thirty years ago. There’s relevancy for you — Geesh! Woz got more animated in the Q&A with the audience and there was some good stuff there.

  17. So how is coverage of EVDO in the US?

    In Europe (where I think we call it UMTS) coverage is fine in all major city centers and some highways but patchy inbetween (=fallback to GPRS which is everywhere but sucks). Which is backwards because in a city center I can find an internet connection anyway.

  19. I listen to Woz’s speech, thanks PodTech.

    Apple is a cult!

    Hope you and Patrick see a metor shower, the Montana sky at night is a better show then anything Apple ever imagined.
