Oh damn folks, Apple is on a roll like no other. We can add Mac OS X Snow Leopard to their growing list of ginormigantuous successes in the last year. According to market research firmThe NPD Group, the updated OS sold twice as much at release than its predecessor. The firm attributed Snow Leopard's low prices to the software's success.
Now that we've seen the results of Apple's fall salvo, we get to wait and see how Microsoft's big rollouts go. October will see the release of both Windows 7 (and the slew of new computers that will bring) and the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 (and its requisite smartphone launches). There is a lot of buzz around Win 7, and the sheer amount of 'suck' contained in Windows Vista will make 7 look mounds better by comparison.
Don't forget, new Macs are due to hit sometime in the next few weeks. That could lead to an added boost in Snow Leopard sales, and renewed interest in Macs across the board. I have a feeling some folks in Cupertino are going to have a very merry Christmas.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
