So I’ve been bitten by the Leopard bug, despite my protestations that

I’d wait a couple of weeks and let the bugs iron themselves out.

I headed out to Funan mall after work, in search of Leopard - and an

enormous external hard disk for Time Machine. The Challenger store

(Aussie readers, think Harris Technology; US readers, think Best Buy)

solved the hard disk problem: 500GB for SGD200 is pretty good in my

book.

So I thought I’d push my luck and ask them if they had Leopard in stock.

“Whaa…?”

“Leopard. The new Mac OS?”

“Sir, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

”…oh, forget it.”

I left Challenger, wandered down the escalator, and ran straight into

a mob of people crammed into the mall’s biggest Apple reseller. Not

only was there a launch party, there was free food. Jackpot.
