Just 10 days ’till Leopard “Ultimate” Edition

Fans of translucent menu bars everywhere rejoice! Apple has finally let the cat, er, Leopard, out of the bag, (no one’s ever used that joke, right?) and announced an official launch date of October 26th for their new OS.

“Leopard, the sixth major release of Mac OS X, is the best upgrade we’ve ever released,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “And everyone gets the ‘Ultimate’ version, packed with all the new innovative features, for just $129.”

Wow. The ultimate version. Coincidentally, Apple also announced Mac OS X Server Leopard, which seems to have more features than the “Ultimate version”, such as the new Podcast Producer. (Maybe Leopard Server is the Ultimate with Cheese).

Well, while it sounds like Steve’s a bit unclear on the term “Ultimate”, we’re excited to finally be able to unload that $100 iPhone credit we’ve had burning a hole in our pocket.

[UPDATE:] Yeah, well, we just went ahead an blew that $100 credit. Free shipping and arrives on the 26th. Not bad!

    Uh oh…Looks like that $100 gift card that I just received for my birthday might already be spent!

    Is it possible that he simply misused the word “version” when intending to say “edition,” a mistake which you avoided in the title of the article? In that case, “ultimate” would be appropriate, wouldn’t it?

    “Ultimate” was an obvious joke – a reference to Vista and its numerous versions, including “Vista Ultimate”. You’d think a site devoted to the mac would have got that much.

    i think you mean delivers on 26th, not arrives ?

  6. James says:

    Recall that when Steve introduced it he poked fun at Redmond by saying there were various editions, with ultimate being the top, and that they all shared the same price (meaning one edition).

  7. Joseph, Yes, I got the “joke”.
    What I was pointing out was there is still a version of OSX with more features available (even consumer oriented ones like podcasting), despite the “Ultimate” name.

    Anonymous, what’s the difference between Delivers and Arrives?

  9. Joseph says:

    Well, Doc – I hope you don’t mind if I call you Doc – I think Jobs’ joke made more sense than your “joke” 🙂

  10. Agreed.
    If you have to explain a joke, I suppose it has failed.
    Let us never speak of it again.
