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...
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.
