Apple's announcements: Another take

Posted by Brier Dudley at 12:54 PM

Talk about crying wolf. Apple Computer teased folks into thinking it would make some big news today, but all it announced was a $99 leather iPod case, a $349 boombox and a couple of Mac minis with Intel processors and TV plugs in back.
If Apple had put a TV tuner and some TiVo-type features in the mini, then we'd have a story.

The boombox is nifty, but it looks an awful lot like a bunch of other iPod speaker systems that are already available for a lot less money.

They used to call boom boxes BFRs. Maybe they should call this one the BFD.
