…I think you are harping on the nano as it is the only thing you got right in the last five years.
When depressed, the little moments where you laugh are the best, however brief. I laugh because its wrong.
As for the "nonsensical" part - thats the method to keep up overall margins…
A, not the. And I fail to see how, given that the target for both devices has almost zero in common.
You have a strange conservatism for a follower of a most innovative consumer electronic company…
Because it PAYS to be pessimistic. You start getting optimistic and fantastical, not only do people laugh in your face at how stupid your ideas are, you get others who don't talk all hopped up on the idea that it might be possible. Then it comes out and is nothing like what they heard and they're all mad and entitled.
…you were "right" about the nano only because your default position on any rumored product is that will never happen…
More lies. I was right because I knew people wouldn't want a screen that small on a touchscreen phone. I really want to try out the new iPod nano, since that's the size of screen people wanted for an iPhone. Can you even IMAGINE? My default position is conservatism, not that "any" product won't happen.
I have ludicrously "outlandish" ideas. I think different. I ignore the mold. And I get laughed at for it because people refuse to see more than five years out. My ideas are a vision for a better future, not a near-future. Not a present. I don't present them due to off-hand dismissal.
You didn't think the mini was happening when pictures of the parts were three a penny on the internet.
Man, you're not paying attention to me at all, are you? I specifically stated I believed it after having seen one.
…I mean Jobs said there will be a TV…
1) He said absolutely nothing of the sort.
2) He's dead. What he thought was meaningless. Hence the iPad mini.
But let me say it here. There will be a TV.
You and Ireland, man. Who in their right mind would buy a $2,500 40" TV that does the same thing as a $999 60" TV and $99 Apple TV… but WORSE?
…and no new product ever.
Ah. Yes. I believe that. 😒
I don't believe that and I say the will produce other iOS categories…
Stay tuned. What iOS turns into will be beautiful.
…and a separate model to the iPhone - one which is not last years model - is hardly the most radical suggestion ever.
But so far it has been the most wrong. And if it happens, having said it right now will NOT have made you "right".
