Your 3 statements are not reasonable:
1. What did you do to contribute
and change? It least those guys are trying to make things better, make the difference.
2. Cocaine sells even more."Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect)."
- Notebook, 1904, Mark Twain"
Additionally, they (Apple) would have made even more money and more sales
(simply because I would have bought it
) if thy were offering matte option.
3. This one is totally wrong. Absolutely.
Thank you for educating us that "glare" is a reflection. *cough* When did you learn it? So that you can proudly tell about it in your post.
Laziness have nothing to do with comfort end effective use. How about your working place (think - your table has a fixed position). Think again. Think about at least 10 other situations.
Related to what you are talking about Eye strain issue
You never start looking for a cause changing many parameters simultaneously. Simply said, those people working long hours do not have eye stain problem on matte screen. This means that long hours is not a significant cause of eye stain.
If you change a parameter - a matte screen to a glossy - you are getting an eye stain in just a friction of the time you are usually have been working without having eye stain issue. This means that glossy option has a significant impact on eye stain
(even if you work shorter time than usually).
I am not sure that this logic could be understood by everyone, especially by those who believe that if something sells good than it is good for you.
Additionally, glossy screens are bad for colors adjusting and any decent photo editing. So your efficiency reduces with glossy screens

3. much of the "glare" you speak of is actually reflection which can be reduced by users who aren't too lazy to make a few adjustments in where the display is placed in a room related to the lights and windows. sometimes a couple of simple tweaks will eliminate the issue.
as for the whole eye strain issue. i love how many of those folks talk about being at the computer for hours non stop and don't consider that such lengthy times is a factor in the fact that they are having strain issues. as much, if not more than the glare.
