Apple Pulls Out of Macworld. Why is This a Surprise?

Honestly, I don't know why it didn't happen sooner. Macworld has always required that Apple build their products and announce them around a date outside of their making. I'm sure this never set well with Jobs and Co. who can really do things as they darn well please, thank you very much.

This writing has been on the wall for some time now. Apple has stores everywhere. They have also started doing their own "mini keynotes" whenever THEY see fit. Development based on a date, rather than a date based on when development was actually finished has never set well with me, as an engineer. I can see now that it never really set well with Apple either, and they've finally decided to do something about it. And in this down economy, why NOT do it now?

Oh and can we PLEASE STOP making everything about the health of Jobs?
