Thoughts and Observations Regarding This Week's iPhone 4S Event , Written Almost Entirely Before Wednesday's Sad News, But Which the Time Has Come to Publish Because Life Goes On  —  What More Could You Have Wanted in a hypothetical ‘iPhone 5’ Today?  —  A 4-inch screen?

Universe Dented, Grass Underfoot   —  After the WWDC keynote four months ago, I saw Steve, up close.  —  He looked old.  Not old in a way that could be measured in years or even decades, but impossibly old.  Not tired, but weary; not ill or unwell, but rather, somehow, ancient.  But not his eyes.

Teardrop Skepticism   —  Preface: I don't know what the new iPhone looks like.  I don't even know whether there's only one new iPhone.  The only thing I know is that there existed, months ago, “N94” prototype iPhones that looked like the iPhone 4, but which contained the iPad 2's next-gen A5 CPU.

Amazon's New Kindles   —  Kindle Fire  —  The Kindle Fire's slogan says it all: “All the content.  Ultra-fast web browsing.”  That's the best sort of marketing message: simple, appealing, and true.  Well, we'll see how fast their new cloud-boosted Silk browser is in practice, but the content part is undeniably true.

The Fall Event   —  Mark Sigal asks a good question, regarding the lack of a September Apple “music event” this year: … If Apple could have made its iPhone announcement this month — September — I think they would have.  I think they went into October because it took longer to get everything in order …

The Case for Going Metro-Only on ARM   —  Jesper makes the case that Microsoft will allow desktop (i.e. traditional) Windows apps to run on ARM-based Windows 8 machines: … Read the whole thing.  His take is reasonable.  If Windows 8 does ship with support for classic non-Metro apps on ARM machines, these will be the reasons why.

Metro   —  I don't think there's any hyperbole in Microsoft's claim that this is “Windows Reimagined”.  But it's not so much that Windows 8 is Windows reimagined, but Metro that is Windows reimagined.  It's truly a whole new concept in how a computer interface should look and work.

All His Life Has He Looked Away, to the Future, to the Horizon.  Never His Mind on Where He Was.  What He Was Doing. … That's Paul Thurrott, tweeting from Microsoft's Build conference.  I'll file it away for future claim chowder, sure, but right now let's think about this in the unsnarkiest terms we can manage.

Winning   —  Yours truly, last week: … Aaron Pressman argues that I was “deliberately obtuse”: … Pressman is right, in a way.  I was too flippant with the aforequoted question.  What I mean by “winning” needs more context.  —  What I'm talking about is the argument that Android is …

The New Apple Advantage   —  Peter Bright wrote a good piece earlier this week at Ars Technica, documenting his attempt to buy a MacBook Air-like Windows laptop (he doesn't want an Air running Windows using Boot Camp because he doesn't like Apple's U.K. keyboard) and finds the experience confusing …
