That's not the purpose of the Mini.  Apple wants you to buy an iMac or MBP if you do more than email and light surfing.     The mini is just a bait and switch product.  It's designed to demo OS X to new Mac users, and once they run into the limits of the hardware Apple expects them to throw out the mini and buy an iMac or MBP.  If Apple wanted a sub-$1000 computing solution, they would use desktop components and make it larger, though obviously things like the video card...
  What else is there that runs OS X natively?  Give me an option and I'll consider it.
  But they should build one.  That is the whole point.
Cook's quote might mean something if he occasional commented that "Apple's product pipeline is sucking air right now, but our engineers are having a breakout session tomorrow!"
    Of course 16 GB is "enough" for an entry level device.  If Apple offered a 128 GB iPod Touch, it most certainly wouldn't be the entry level iPod!     Given how slow it is to sync music to an iPod Touch, it would be nice to fit a whole iTunes library on one.  That's why I own an iPod Classic, so I can cram as much music as possible on it and don't have to sync as often.  It's also nice to always have what I want to hear with me.  I listen to a lot of Jazz encoded in...
iPod? Maybe Apple EOLs the iPod classic and finally loads the iPod touch with enough memory?
  The key functional advance is the reduced screen glare.  Otherwise the thinness gimps the iMac as far as internal drives and video card options.
  Apple could make a sensor that plugs into your arse and send a notification when you need to take a dump.
  A better example is the MobileMe debacle.  Jobs fired MobileMe director Rob Schoeben after chewing out the team and telling them they should hate each other for having let each other down.  He condemned the entire team for having "tarnished Apple's image".     Note that the MobileMe debacle didn't have the same repercussions on sales that this iMac debacle has.  This iMac failure is comparable to some of Motorola's failures, and it's well documented how Jobs felt about...
Honors and awards don't make it any easier to plug a flash drive into the back of the TB display or upgrade the HDD/SSD in an iMac, do they?   They don't make the TB's display height adjustable, do they?
