Leo-pard-icious

I went down to Cupertino this afternoon to get a briefing and demo of Leopard. And a copy. I'm installing it now. I haven't played with the betas, but I have to say I was very very impressed. More to come.

Not Dead Yet

People seem to have misinterpreted my "dead cow" analogy and are assuming that I bricked my iPhone. Nope.
