Apple's product cycle explored
Whether you're a true Mac zealot, a PC user with an iPod, or a die-hard x86 fan, blogger Misterbg's tongue-in-cheek description of the Apple product cycle is worth a read and a laugh.

The virtual slap-fight goes on and on, until obscure technical nuances like, “Will it play multiplexed Ogg Vorbis streams?” become matters of life and death.
If you've ever found yourself in a discussion that even approaches the one mentioned above, this is for you.
