Getting All Shirty

When I first created this blog, I didn’t work for Apple, and Mac OS X 10.4’s codename, “Tiger,” hadn’t yet been announced.

So when it was, I prided myself on being ahead of the curve. Perhaps…evening inventing the curve?

Now, at WWDC, my prescience has once again been demonstrated for all the world to see:

Apple even borrows my blog background for such important things as its engineering shirt color.

Next thing you know, they’ll have an application called “Help”….

    Are there many things more demeaning than having to wear construction-orange polo shirts that are completely unreusable?

    (Actually, the woman at the Apple desk told me not to fret, because “orange is the new black.”)

    Your *real* prescience is in your choice of icon: isn’t that a Leopard on that ball, not a Tiger?

    Interesting observation, Rob. Apparently, Andrew’s blog is, like, some kinda crystal ball in which we can discern shadowy shapes of the murky future. Call the rumor sites!

    I look forward eagerly to future design tweaks. 😉

    I wonder if this means that the OS release after Leopard is going to be called “Glowing Blue Ball”…
