Perhaps it plays to Apple LOVERS' dreams about getting Apple to make a change so they could buy and use the device. No one else would care about having a compatible port.
If Cook starts kowtowing to techie demands the next iPad will have a SCSI port and Blu-Ray drive I guess, Guy Kawasaki be damned.
Funny you should invoke the name of Apple's former top evangelist.
Guy Kawasaki has dropped iOS completely and gone all Android. He now says:
"To me the great irony is that Apple’s slogan was `Think Different,’ but today if you think different you’re looking at Android."
I say, "buy whatever fits your needs, and don't worry about what others think.''
In that same vein, I think that Cook marches to his own drummer, while really wanting to please his customers.
