I love seeing graphic designers who haven't a friggin' clue do hardware design, then get their panties in a bunch when the released model doesn't follow their renderings. Stick to making cute icons in Illustrator/Photoshop, dudes.
I think it's just that people are now starting to roll their eyes every time Cook says, "We have exciting new products in the pipeline that we just can't wait to get into people's hands." The key word is 'new'. Yes, he's refreshed existing products, but what new products have come out under Cook?
Please list "amazing new products." Amazing refreshes of existing products don't really count, what with all the NEW products competitors are releasing day in, day out. Disclaimer: I own 3 shares of APPL, so my desire to see new products at the expense of long-term vision overwhelms my sensibilities.
Your move, Apple.
How many times in the past two years has Cook said, "We've got amazing new products in the pipeline..."?
Definitely a bunch of market-appeasing, gasbag bromides at this point. They sound no different than any other vaporware-producing has-been.
