Twitter; nuisance or necessary?

i’ve been using twitter for quite some time. i go through phases of twittering a lot and then not. i can’t decide whether it is nuisance or necessary.

but this is the rub. obvious have hit upon something that is quite brilliant. i can’t decide whether it is a waste of time, yet i continue to ‘waste’ my time using it. more than that, i find it somewhat therapeutic to offer up my random thoughts and musings to an equally random world of listeners.

the furore that surrounded twitter at SXSW was testament too…but that could have been because there was little else of note there? i wasn’t present so i speak w/o authority.

i’m sure the confounded thing (which i say with love) has some very real applications too…not just in generating noise.

Apple delay Leopard…turning into Microsoft?

i’m an apple convert. come to expect them shipping cool stuff on time. so when they announce that leopard is slipping by 4 months it irks me. not because i can’t wait for the app, but because the immediate thought that hit me was…

oh no they are turning into microsoft. this is the first sign…

the press release says something akin to needing engineering and QA people to get the iPhone out of the door. whoah, what about us humble Mac users. so, maybe this is another sign…chasing the mighty greenback at the expense of their loyal computer users.

i’m pretty sure jobs et al could muster up some extra bodies to test leopard. they reckon it will be finished by june, but not QA’d. i cry b*llshit…face it, they are biting of more than they can chew.

ok, so the delay isn’t years a la vista, but it is interesting that when microsoft slip a product all hell breaks loose, yet when apple do it, it’s ok. oh well, that’s life Bill.
