Exactly. Consumer Reports
is supposed to represent consumers, but they've been Hell-bent on finding something scandalous with every Apple's iOS device of late, and praising hardware specs over great user experience, to the point where you start to question whether these guys are disconnected from what most consumers think and want. For me, it's moot because Consumer Reports
doesn't speak for consumers; consumers speak for themselves and vote with their money. And Apple, as a brand, seems to be hitting the sweet spot with consumers, which is all that really ever mattered.
