1. Editor's Note: C'Mon, Apple, Give Us Mac Users Some Love
With iPhone hype building to a frenzy, Mac users are feeling neglected and unloved. I can't remember Apple's last interesting Mac announcement. Instead, Apple's been giving its love to the mobile phone crowd, and even Windows users.
True, the company unveiled faster MacBook Pros earlier this month, which is fine, but faster chips, graphics, and displays are just routine.
Apple delivered its biggest snub to Mac users when it pushed back release of Leopard, the upcoming upgrade to Mac OS X, to October, a delay of four months. Apple didn't even bother coming up with a pretty lie to spare our feelings. It came right out and said it did it so it could get the iPhone out on time. Well, that's fine, Apple, we're making up our holiday card list right now and you're not on it.
Even when Leopard finally arrives, it's unclear whether it'll be any big deal. Most of the advance publicity focuses on Time Machine, a backup utility. Backup is important, but boring. Getting Time Machine from Apple is like a housewife getting a washing machine as an anniversary present from her husband.
What do you think? Are Mac users neglected? Any interesting announcements in the recent past or near future that I'm overlooking? Or should we all just throw out our Macs and standardize on CP/M? Leave a message on the InformationWeek Blog and let us know.

Will The iPhone Support Microsoft Exchange?
For much of the last six months, bloggers and reporters operated under the assumption that the iPhone would not support major enterprise platforms like BlackBerry Enterprise Server or Microsoft Exchange. That may change, though, if Microsoft blogger Mary Jo Foley is correct. According to her, the iPhone will support Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
A Cell Phone Is A Woman's Best Friend
If you believe a new study from Samsung, women use cell phones for more than just security reasons. Young women are super savvy at using all the facets of a mobile phone to enhance their lives. When women want to flirt, they'll send a text message. When they need to avoid a stalker, they will fake technical difficulties. And more than a handful said they wouldn't date a man who had a big, bulky cell phone. I guess size matters in more ways than one.
Apple And AT&T Finally Announce iPhone Rate Plans
If you've been hankering for a hunk of hot Apple gadget love on Friday, but were waiting to find out just how much the service plan for the Apple iPhone will cost before committing, there is good news. Voice and data plans for the iPhone start at the reasonable price of $59.99 per month. But there's also a downside.

What The Business Really Thinks Of IT: 3 Hard TruthsThey say perception is reality. If so, many in-house IT departments have reason to worry.
