Anyone else find it very odd that Apple is commenting on these future, unreleased products at all? Given the backlash, I could see them *maybe* hinting about something with the Mac Pro, but the iMac? They’re effectively torpedoing sales of that product until next year. Very odd.
Update: Apple has clarified that while they (Tim Cook, no less) are on record as saying the Mac Pro will be updated next year, they actually have nothing to say about the iMac. This could mean the iMac will see an update sooner — or that they want don’t want to set expectations of the device (which is much more popular than the Mac Pro), potentially hurting sales.
