That $29 upgrade cost for Snow Leopard is so modest. The amount of changes within this release isn’t earth shattering (see the “Put Back” feature), but it’s enough to warrant an upgrade. And for $29? Why not.
The new iPhone 3G S sounds great, but it looks like the same phone. Hell, it’s even a bit heavier than the 3G. Will I finally get one? Not yet. Not while Rogers has such ridiculous voice & data plans.
