The TUAWs guys broke this earlier. Seems the Apple marketing machine is dribbling so much drool about the iPhone that Apple can’t take any chances on the little sucker coming out late. And since they also seem to be having geek trouble with it, they decided to do what most managers do when they have geek problems: Throw more geeks at it. And since there are a finite number of geeks in Cupertino, the Orchard got more from the only place it could, the Leopard tree. Means we don’t see Leopard until October at the earliest.
If I were really vindictive, I’d go back and dig up all the nasty comments Apple employees made when Microsoft had to delay Vista. But I’m not.
