Hot News Story: Company Tries to Match Competitors' Prices

In a move inexplicably construed as ground-breaking, Apple Computer, Inc., yesterday announced the release of a new computer that would cost roughly the same as most (and, indeed, more than many) other computers made by its competitors.

CEO and creepy recluse Steve Jobs made the announcement at this year's Macworld convention, in his characteristic attire: a black turtleneck surgically welded to his body, and creative-genius-looking designer stubble. He also sported a new iPod shuffle on a string around his neck, effectively removing every shred of cool which Apple's industrial designers had worked for months to inject.

Jobs' speech consisted mainly of the words "breakthrough", "incredible" and "innovative" repeated over and over again, not necessarily in syntactically meaningful ways.

I make fun, of course, but I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I have already considered buying a Macmini. I think I'm going to hold off until it's shipping with 10.4 installed.

Heh. If someone was a disciple of Steve Jobs, would that make them a Jobbie?

Nerd, Andrew. That would make them a nerd.
