iMessages for the Rest of Us

My Dearest Apple,

It saddened me greatly to receive your email today regarding the ending of the Messages beta program for Mac OS X Lion. Even though the app is technically in beta, it has been very stable and has been a pleasure to use.

Unfortunately, my MacBook is the 2008 model that you decided wasn’t quite recent enough for Mac OS X Mountain Lion although I am certain it would run just fine based on the specs of the next model you did decide to support. What this means to me is that I will lose the ability to use iMessages on my MacBook on December 14th.

I do have to admit that I’m a little confused about this whole thing. Clearly, Messages runs on Mac OS X Lion. I have a working app to prove it. If this is a matter of revenues or some other technicality, I would gladly fork over a few bucks to buy Messages from the Mac App Store. Remember FaceTime? How about you do something similar to that approach. It would be great to continue to enjoy iMessages on my MacBook that still has a lot of useful life left.

Please let me know what you think when you have a chance.

Best regards,
Tim

Grover and the Republicans

After taking some time to think about what those Republicans that signed the Norquist tax pledge had actually done, it is clear to me that each one of those representatives violated their oath to serve their constituents and their country. The pledging of allegiance to Norquist was a direct conflict of interest, and here we sit still hearing about this small-minded, short-sighted idea.

In my world of the way things should be, there should have been outrage from every constituent in every district represented by the signers of the pledge. How dare they make such a pledge to anyone besides the represented and the country.

This should have been a bigger deal than it was and still is. None of these guys should have been re-elected, and each one of them should denounce their allegiance and refocus on serving those that elected them. The oath of office is a sacred thing, and anything that conflicts with that should be questioned and avoided.
