I guess I'm being so emotional about it because I'm still mad at the absolute failure of the 3Gs launch in Canada, how I couldn't get one for over six months despite phoning my carrier almost daily, and especially because no one in the media even reported the story (seeing how the USA had stock and that's all anyone cares about it seems).

So yeah, take my prediction with a grain or two of salt cause I'm obviously basing it more on the past failure than the facts. The fact remains however that Apple is having a horrendous time keeping up with supply during their transition from tiny also-ran US computer company to world-dominating retail behemoth.

I'd have to point out that your having to wait 6months for a phone doesn't make the phone a failure - Apple not being able to meet demand isn't great for a consumer waiting in line, but must make for a very healthy profit and appearance of success on Apple's part.

I've been reading constantly about Apple's 'problems' - every 27" iMac being faulty etc, etc, but I've yet to meet a real world user who has experienced an issue. It seems people just like to pick fault, a bit like the child labour report - commissioned and publicly distributed by Apple themselves - being taken out of context and used against them, when the report is nothing but a good thing and shows that Apple are being open, and trying to rectify the issue.

It just seems that people like to knock a success story, either out of jealousy, ignorance or simply the fact it's easier to criticise than to see the good points once in a while.

Loving my 27" iMacs.

You are absolutely right, it's a complete disaster!

The context of the reply was in response to shipping products before they were ready to ship. Do you want to argue they were ready to ship?

Try and read the posts before responding so you have full context of the responses.

On another note, it's great to see Amazon is now the frame of reference for sales.

Well as one of the largest on-line retailers, I'd say it was a great frame of reference.

I'd also argue that the 27" iMac was ready to ship - nine first generation units here - no issues. No one else I know with one of these reporting errors of any kind. (That's a lie, one friend had a faulty power cable, but I think one mechanical error now and again is part of life).

Just because you didn't have an issue doesn't mean there wasn't a manufacturing issue. There clearly was and after over two months (?) of replacing units apple admitted so themselves. If they admitted it is it fair to say they had an issue in their manufacturing?

It can only be a frame of reference if you know how many are being sold. So the Mac Mini is higher than the 27" iMac, that must mean that the mini is a better machine, by your standard.

Apple wants to release Quality products not crap.

CNET.com is saying Wired was told by Apple that ""iPad will be available in late March."

We'll soon see.

Do. Not. Want. In fact, after the multiple iTunes debacles and the AT&T iPhone lock-in, I don't ever want ANY Apple product.

You don't deserve an apple product. And btw check the top bar on your browser, it has something known as a web address, helps being in the right place and not embarrassing oneself.
