Anyone else just want one single chance to set Jobs straight?
Just like a ***** slap or something.
The old fart claims to do what the consumers want yet when you think about it...
How many things have we had to ask apple for before they made it? Let's make a list shall we? (Feel free to add)
- Mobile community first release touch screen (Apple.. We want touch screen ----> ipod touch)
- Mobile community utilizes bluetooth, mms, video, copypasta, multitasking, multiple mail accounts, front camera (to be), and more (But Apple... WE want that stuff... pweaze...
...Apple: ZOMFG look how cool we are!!! We got all this stuff.. woooot. We are the best
- Apple... Why does this pc have better specs than this mac? Can we have that stuff pweaze???
... Apple: ZOMFG .. etc etc
Point being... take this analagy:
Ok so there is a big basket of oranges that is the consumer market, each orange representing a feature or aspect desired by consumers that is sharable amongst all companies.
Now apple does some research and looks at all the oranges the other companies in the market have and says, "Hmmm, we need to do something different... and my god if these people are stupid enough to believe this we will be RICH!"
So Apple decides to take a handful of oranges and gets to work on drawing pretty pictures and making videos of their apples. Days turn to months, months turn to years as Apple cleverly positions themselves to release their goods to the market. (Consider iphone for this).
Now remember, Apple doesn't have many oranges so what do they do? They come into the market with giant pictures they were drawing for years and cool videos that show off their magnificent handful of oranges (while other companies have hundreds of oranges).
Now the consumers (the stupid people that Apple referred to) go, "Oooooo pretty pictures!! =]" and decided to go with this new trend. As this occurs Apple brings out more and more pictures making their oranges looks absolutely amazing, herding all the stupid people into a big trap.
Now... this people are happily using Apple's oranges when they start to notice other companies have more oranges. Not knowing they are in a big trap, they kindly ask for more oranges.
Apple has them where they want them, Apple (remember years of positioning) now look like the good guys, and scratch a few more oranges to their pile.
Again, bringing in the big pictures. But now! the trap comes. The unknowing people in the trap are all excited... clawing at these new oranges, oblivious to the fact that Apple has actually STOLEN these oranges. These people are all happy but do not realize they are being controlled by a huge *****.
Eventually... Apple steals all the oranges and there are no more for the other companies. At this point the millions of people finally realize the **** that has been controlling them (Jobs). Fortunately, scientists discover a strange orange virus that scares all the people to the new pineapples of the market leaving Apple to ironically die from all its oranges.
Ahhh rant over (it probably lost meaning some way through but i believe the essence was kept)
Think what you want, not here to argue =]
Have a good weekend!

Sooo, what are you supposed to do with your other hand?
Nvm I guess it'd be good for small devices.
