I really love the steel spiral. The all-glass staircases are cool, but a little bit silly / show-off-y. This feels more in tune with using the right materials for the right purposes. I don't know if you really gain anything by making the steps out of glass.
Exactly. Even if all the worst criticism is true, that Beats are overpriced, have terrible sound, and silly style, then even then you have to admit they pulled off a marketing miracle. At the very least, they're great a business.FWIW, my freind has a Beats bluetooth speaker and it is truly amazing the sound that comes out of that thing. It's so small yet it sounds beautiful.
I know it's a meaningless increase, but most people are not emotionless logic-only investors.
Even beyond the "it's cheaper, so I'll buy it" thing. Apple was stagnant for so long, people feel like they "know" what range it should be in. This shakes up everyones head a little. Now 700 doesn't feel like such a psychological barrier. Maybe we'll actually get a more fair valuation without that baggage.
This exactly it. I don't know how people can compare them. iTunes Radio and Pandora choose music to play at me and stop me from skipping after awhile if I dislike their choices.Spotify and Rdio will play almost any song I want, any time, as many times as I want. It's a completely different thing!
