I agree - there are people all over the world who live in houses that look and feel just like the inside of an Apple Store. It's just personal taste. Not everyone wants to live in an Apple Store and not everyone wants to live in a fake Victorian tract home.
That is not the definition of flop. Total failure is, but using your parlance the device in question did not make money for it's manufacturer so it did not serve the intended purpose.
I find it difficult to only use the App Store for software downloads. There are a lot of good apps that for one reason or another are not available there. Carbon Copy Cloner, Indigo (home automation), CrushFTP, various Tivo interface apps, printer software and so on are not on the App Store. I also have things that use Java which I know plenty of people think is a terrible, but I don't really have a choice in the matter. I can complain to the developers and device...
All of your points make sense, particularly after Ive commented on how difficult and "humbling" he found watch design to be. There is no doubt they have considered the concept of long life in expensive watches and made design decisions to accommodate.
I had about 20 Macs in a video post facility and all of them were Admin accounts.  I did not have time to run around typing in admin passwords every time an editor needed a new font or plug-in or any number of other things requiring Admin access.  Not feasible in an environment where clients are paying hundreds of dollar an hour for the editor or designer to work - not go find me to come type in a password.

Predicting post mortem behavior of Jobs is just as impossible as predicting his behavior when alive.
Samsung seems to use the same approach - "let's invent a 1000 new things and maybe one of them will be good."I'm old, so I remember the scene from The Odd Couple where Felix throws the plate of linguini onto the wall and pronounces "Now it's garbage."  Apropos for too many tech companies these days.
Well shoot.  My 2010 MBP doesn't do Handoff.
Yose downloaded and installed perfectly on my 2010 MBP 15".  I haven't seen anything untoward yet. I like the new look for the most part.  The color saturation is a little high on the various icons and window control buttons.  And yes, the new system font is not my favorite - my older eyes don't like it much.  I've increased the font size a lot so I can read things without my glasses.   My only real issue started with the last Mavericks update and has continued into...
