Oh, the Disappointment!
Posted by Sam at 8:04 PM

I've been really struggling with a good way to say this, and I've decided redundancy is probably the best approach. Here goes: Today's WWDC keynote was a...

big
adjective
1. large, sizable, substantial, great, huge, immense, enormous, extensive, colossal, massive, mammoth, vast, tremendous, gigantic, giant, monumental, mighty, gargantuan, elephantine, titanic, mountainous, Brobdingnagian; towering, tall, high, lofty; outsize, oversized; goodly; capacious, voluminous, spacious; king-size(d), man-size, family-size(d), economy-size(d); informal jumbo, whopping, mega, humongous, monster, astronomical, ginormous*

...disappointment. Honestly, the highlight of the keynote (for me) was the announcement of the future absence of the brushed metal look (which I've said good-bye to long ago, thanks to Uno). Yeah, aside from being a great sub-genre of Heavy Metal, brushed metal is getting a bit tired! (Ha!)

*Special shout-outs to the OS X thesaurus for this one!

Sorry you ran into such disappointment at something with so much potential. I hope you at least had a beer or 5 during the event.

Personally, I'm good with letting the sub-genre brushed metal go along the wayside. It is just a shell of it's former self.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
