I’m sitting at the University Village outpost of Zoka. Next to me are a couple of guys from Delicious Monster, who make a cataloging application for the Mac called Delicious Library.
They have been bitching loudly for the past 10 or 15 minutes while one of them seems to be Instant Messaging with the rep for some sort of Mac dealer chain (maybe the Apple Store).
At the root, it is natural comiseration about the frustrations of maintaining a business relationship, but the attitude is rather arrogant and negative, it’s being spoken loudly in a public place and the result is that it makes me not like them very much. I wonder what will happen if Steve Jobs takes and interest in what they are doing and launches a competing product. Will their arrogance be any match for Steve’s?
