Top three mobile application threats

And Another Thing

There are many more Apple offerings, of course, that what we've discussed above. The most glaring omission is software, from the entry-level iLife '08 through the hot and cold iWork '08 productivity suite, from the market-leading Final Cut Studio 6 through the vastly improved Logic Studio, from the continually improving Xcode 3 IDE and Interface Builder 3 to the sliding-into-irrelevancy WebObjects.

Then there's the company's somewhat neglected SMB offerings, with hardware represented by the Xserve and software by Xsan 2 and Apple Remote Desktop 3.2. Apple's consumer-level services in Mobile Me need an examination, as well - if Apple ever gets them running seamlessly, that is.

Finally, there's the universe that's Mac OS X 10.5, aka Leopard, in both its client and server variations. From Mach 3.0 to Darwin to Aqua to Quartz Extreme to Bonjour to the four Cores of Audio, Video, Image, Animation, and more - all topics for another day.

Until then, we'll brace ourselves for January 24, 2009. There's no telling what the Jobsian cult might do.
