No recent Apple lust

I stopped in the Apple Store at lunch today. There aren't any things there that I think, "Gosh, I'd sure like to have that." Is Apple slipping in feeding the technology addiction? Not if you read their quarterly results!

After seeing future-bro-in-law's 17" MacBook Pro, I do admit that I kind of would like to have one. But I'd prefer to get three good years out of my 15", and I'm already two-thirds of the way there. It has been a great laptop, not counting the weird random shut-off thing it did for a couple of weeks. The battery health is starting to dwindle after ~250 or so charge cycles, but I'm still getting two hours per charge.

The hot rumor is that the iPhone will be re-released with support for 3G networking soon, which certainly has some appeal. I'm just not sure it's $500 appeal. The only thing I really wish it did that it does not currently is some "real" calendaring functionality.

3G iPhone & Aluminum MacBook will be at the top of my list come June, if not in my hands.

I'll look into the iPhone as soon as they allow different carriers besides AT&T - which sucks in Northwest OH, where my parents live.

As far as the aluminum Macbook - I'm already planning on that in about 2 years. I can't buy a new one when this one is 3 months old.
