Unreasonable expectations

The pundits are calling Steve Jobs’ WWDC keynote “disappointing” because he didn’t announce any new iPod or consumer products like the iPhone. Since WWDC is for developers, not consumers, his announcements were exactly what would be expected. The new Mac Pro and XServe completes the Intel transition and Leopard’s new features add some very significant improvements.

A few days ago I correctly predicted that there would be no new iPod announcements at MacMegasite. My biggest surprise at WWDC was seeing how many developers are still using PowerBook G4s, which far outnumber MacBook Pros and even MacBooks.
