More Disappointments

Dear Journal,

I don’t have expectations. Expectations in your life just lead to giant disappointments.

During WWDC, when Steve announced that Push Notification would be available in September, I couldn’t wait for it to come.

I felt like a child waiting for Christmas .. the anticipation and excitement mounting until that day finally arrived.

Just three months … just three short months …..

So summer continued to roll on with beta testing …

It was August … weeks within reach of this new functionality … but there was something strange within the walls of Apple.

With no real explanation, they pulled the Push Notification feature out of their fourth beta release.

After reading this news, I started to get apprehensive about whether we would even see it next month.

Come September, Apple has their “Let’s Rock” event … having some expectation that Steve would say something … anything about it …

Nope … nada … zero. Nothing was said or even mentioned about the Push Notification or of it being late. I realize that the focus of the event was iPod related … but still …..

Steve … buddy … you got to stop doing this to us. One of my annoyances, when someone says things they don’t really mean. If you can’t back up what you say, then don’t say it.

There was mentioning of a September release … I don’t see any updates yet. You could have said a “fall release” or during the “last quarter” … but you told us a specific month and we expected it.

Now I’m guessing they won’t release the new firmware until October 14th when it’s rumored that they’ll update their laptop line.

I always have high expectations when it comes to Apple, but these day’s … they’re just disappointing me more and more. We’re better than this … let’s not turn into Microsoft now.

Steve, I know you’re busy and it’s crunch time at Apple … so I’ll forgive you this round because I know you don’t want another unstable firmware release *cough cough 2.0 cough cough*

Quotes Of The Day

- "In the end, every relationship needs maintenance …Whether it’s the smallest gesture …or just picking up back where you left off. The bottom line is that if you care about someone, it’s pretty easy to make the sacrifice."
