A New MacBook Pro - inevitable?

Dave Winer noted that his previous mac laptop dies coincident with the release of the new MacBook. My own experience was remarkably similar. Three days after I took possession of my MacBook Pro, my 15" G4 laptop just stopped booting. After two weeks of agonizing over potentail lost data, I finally determined that nothing was lost. Thankfully, the cloning utility that comes with new Macs did a superb job of moving everything from the old to the new.

I went ahead and formatted the hard drive. Final analysis: my hard drive died (again)!

"Here are two events, you can decide for yourself, if it's a coincidence, or a marvelous example of planned obsolescence."
