Your ignorance is blatant. Apple has never "listened" to their customers. Neither does Ferrari.
They just make what they think are really, really awesome products. If you don't like them; just move on to something you do like. It's that simple, and it always has been.
It's laughable you don't realize this.
Thank you. I don't know why more people can't understand this. There are still people actually saying "Dude, there were touch screens around before Apple's iPhone. Blah, blah, blah".
I don't even try to respond to them anymore. Just have to .
Well, to flesh this out a little; with any mobile device, it's not just about battery life. It's about battery life x size x weight
Easy to get better battery life from a device. Just put a bigger battery in it. (and accept the consequences vs. the benefits of that.)
