Somehow I managed not to be at the Apple Store tonight for the Panther release. I would have had to settle for the store at Southdale anyway, since the one at the Mall of America is closed for remodelling (!). The Southdale Apple store is fine — I stood in line for its grand opening, no regrets — but a bit dinky. Besides, I don’t feel that I can drop $130 right now. So I shall wait for Panther, at least until next payday, and live vicariously.
