  2. What a pretentious name is Mavericks. Who is Apple trying to impress with their "greater than thou attitude". Apple is asleep at the wheel in my opinion.

    When they made the decision to drop the cat names they should have bailed into the plant kingdom and started using trees/woods. For instance: cedar, oak, chestnut, ash, pine, spruce, and lignum would have all been better names than 'mavericks'.
