But yesterday's introduction was mediocre at best. It's not that Steve Jobs et al didn't meet my expectations -- it's that my expectations were just about dead on. Apple has given us what amounts to an over-sized iPod Touch. If you had asked me a year ago, or even two years ago, what Apple's next device was going to be, I would have said "Well, maybe something a little bigger than the iPhone? But, of course, those geniuses will come up with something much more exciting than that."
