It doesn't seem to Apple that catering to your outlandish demands and false statements is of any benefit to them, otherwise they'd do it.
People who demand a certain type of display are the ones who saved Apple? I don't think so.
No, seriously, what do you do that would have 'saved Apple' while simultaneously forcing you to be in total darkness when you're using your computer? I'm totally, genuinely curious now.
1. We are "masses". Hundreds of thousands it would seem if you go to Apple's own forums.
So your wrong there.
2. Having displays that don't impair vision and the onset of migraine headaches is hardly an 'outlandish demand'.
3. Professionals are demanding a matte display option. Professionals are the ones who saved Apple. Again, that's your 10 minutes of Apple familiarity showing. Go ahead, read up or ask around.
4. We are aware we are not important to Apple... anymore. Divorce isn't easy. Especially when one party doesn't want one. That is why we are frustrated.
Do you understand that? No, seriously, do you understand that?
5. The 'creative industry' if you will, saved Apple (common known fact). Critical applications would include graphic design, pre-press (color correcting files from designers with no clue). Scanning and color correcting photographs, photography as a whole, matching Macbeth charts/photos for the dental lab industry for opaquing crowns, lighting calibration for video projects, video projects in general, testing calibration of new equipment, interior design applications, paint matching systems... to name a few. Pretty much any job that ended with the word 'production'.
Were you aware that walls were/are painted neutral greys in most cases as to reduce hue and tone tainting on displays? That a billion dollar industry for resolving color shifting and calibration was created. How do think having a mirror for a display affects these applications today?
Glossy displays are Apple going back to the stone age.
They may be fine for the light consumer and vain - but not professionals or those who value their eyesight.
