Yes, i think he would prefer that. However, i do think there is some validity in looking at how vapor got turned into vaporware. It seems to me that Captain Cook's hands were tied in addressing all of the 80+ tablets. His description of 'vapor' is quite apt in describing something that he doesn't know enough about to see how it actually compares to an Ipad. I mean really if you don't know pricing, availability, battery life, and more. What are you supposed to say to how your product compares? I'd buy 100 xooms if they were 1$ and I could go to the store and get one right now, also if they were powered by magic fairy dust that negated a need for batteries. Now wouldn't that be magical?
He said everything he was really qualified to say. He mentioned why he thinks even if the slew of tablets are as good as they say they are, Apple isn't afraid to compete and they have unique offerings in terms of integration, ecosystem, etc that nobody can match.
Most importantly, he emphasized several times how excited Apple is about the products they have in their pipeline.
I'm a pretty leniant guy when it comes to companies releasing products and not delivering them for a couple months. But recently my patience has been tried and tested. I'm starting to think that a company doesn't deserve marketing hype, and publicity based off mockups and concepts. The annoyingness doesn't end here though, these same companies that are producing concepts and models, and advanced prototypes, want you to consider their products when making an argument in the present. You know? Like their nonexistant product has already changed the game, and if you don't take it into consideration than you are a dillusional fanboy or something.
