Person A. Thanks.
- two weeks later -
Person B asks Person A, "how'd you like your iPhone."
Person A. "I returned it. The battery life was horrible and it kept getting hot. Apple really should do something about that."
2.) Matte screens on iMacs
Look shitty in stores to regular consumers. Customers see Apple as just another PC vendor.
3.) Blu-ray support
It's not what I want Apple to spend any effort on, but I wouldn't complain if it was there. It is available from third party now. Even movie playback.
5.) HDMI on all Macs
Done via dongle. Surely you don't want to waste the space for an actual full size port given that 99% of Macs will never connect to a television?
6.) Safari and apps on ATV.
Surfing the web on a TV is horrible. Absolutely horrible. Apple wouldn't tolerate that level of user experience. JailBreak your ATV and put Firefox on it if you want to.
7.) End of keynotes - only self serving to the master showman. A disaster without him.
Are you insane? Keynotes are one of the major reasons that Apple gets all the press coverage that they do. If they just put our a press release, the press wouldn't care. It's the big show that gets them shown on CNN, MSNBC, and write ups in newspapers.
The problem with your list is that it reads like a geek wish list. Sorry, but Apple needs the mainstream too, more than the geeks who make up a tiny minority.
