I'm a very patient person. I'm sure I'll see a 17″ PowerBook in my future. After all, it's my fault that I quickly jumped on a significant offer for my 15″ TiBook several months ago. Wishful thinking. The eternal optimist. Can't find any reason to be any other way. Not that I want to set myself up for disappointment, but positive thinking, smiles and attitude all make for a better day. And that's how I take this news. If I really wanted to push it, I could displace my guilt for low blogging activity this week and blame Apple for my inability to be as flexible as I'd like. But that's a cop out and I'd only be fooling myself — never and not you! But damn…. I'd like to un-tether myself from this desk soon….
