The pain that is waiting for packages.

The pain that is waiting for packages.

Buying via internet is getting far too normal and there’s less and less people worrying about remote shopping. But just what a pain is waiting for the delivery of the next package.

I keep having this problem, and it’s a double sided knife.

  • You can’t wait for the package and you’d like to do something else to kill the time
  • You can’t do anything because if you leave home and the delivery arrives… you’ll rage.

It’s far too bitter to wait without doing anything.

Right now I am waiting my copy of Snow Leopard to arrive. You know, the new version of the Mac OS. There should be some heavy improvement, and of course I can’t wait to install that on my MacBook. The shipping of Snow Leopard really became a mass phenomenon, everybody is blogging about it. Most likely because the OS costs only 30 euro for everyone and just 9 euro for who bought their Mac this summer (just like me).

It’s debateable if it’s a good thing that Apple sells this kind of software: many say it’s just an update like Windows Service Packs, other say that it’s incredible that Apple is going to sell an OS for just 30 euro (don’t forget, for Apple 30euro=30bucks). Even who’s still on Tiger can, in fact, update to Snow Leopard, as it seems. Ah, only Intel users. It’s still the feeling we’re just getting an update. Apple says that the costs are just for shipping as well.apple-wwdc9_1419985c

It’s a half way that doesn’t let anyone foulmouth Apple without the question if Snow Leopard is really an OS for 30 euro, but after what they did with the iPod Touch and iPhone software version 3.0 (pay for updating to the new version with near to no interesting updates), I think Apple should give Snow Leopard to EVERYONE for 9 euro.

But, they know that if the user pays, he feels he’ll get more care, and that at the price is so low everyone will upgrade, Mac haters with a Mac excluded. Double reverse thinking. Good job Apple.

    This. I’m constantly having this problem. Particularly the latter, because if I’m sleeping after a night shift, I miss the delivery. Happened today, AGAIN. Whee.

    Also, goes to show how much I’ve been paying attention. Didn’t know Snow Leopard was out. Guess I’ll hafta take a looksie.

      stripes? i see dots. for stripes on an animal, refer to zebra. this is no where near stripes.

    Strange that Apple has made a combo breaker to its line of the X design to every box cover for the OS X and now have an actual Leopard as the logo.
