This proves it. Apple has their head up their rear ends are getting high off the stench. Then explain why so many people are hacking their netbooks to run OS X and many want a netbook that runs OS X but don't know how or to afraid to hack.
The rumors of Apple's 10 inch something project are driving people like me mad with anticipation which will probably end in major frustration just like the 13 inch MacBooks did and every product released in the last 5 years.
This is just Apple's way of saying we don't have the engineering know how how to build a netbook or a 10 inch laptop with full features like HDMI, several USB/firewire ports, or anything useful that we as customers want.
Blu-ray, a bag of hurt,
No Flash in iphone/ipod touch-too complicated,
Replaceable battery in MacBook Air, iphone/touch-Can't be done (use carbon fiber and it can like the Voodoo Envy).
No firewire in 13 inch Mac Book-it appeals to a different group and people don't need it.
Anything useful that uses 3G, sorry no can do, we support only tech that makes you buy music, shows, movies and services from us and our partners at ridiculous cost and anything of value to you is not allowed.
Tethering-hell no, well maybe me if you sell your first born but then we will still stop you from skyping or accessing sling player.
Problem with screens being too reflective- sorry that looks better to us so shut up and just buy our product or prepare to be socially ostracized
future excuse-Its our mission to stop putting in CD/DVD drives in our computers so you can't watch any content you have available on CD/DVD so you must download your content from us.Seems like everything we want is being countered with some BS
and then they add customers don't want it and they are too cool to make crap. Dude wake up You have made nothing but crap the last 5 years.
The iphone, with version 3 is what a basic iphone should have been at launch. Trying to use your fingers is a nightmare. Especially trying to edit or cut, copy and paste. With a stylus they would not need those two end quotes or points. No keyboard or support for 3rd party BT keyboards, so how do you do much of anything on that device. I admit, i like the browser but no flash support is sick.
Seriously folks Apple has really lost its way, being an Apple fan boy for nearly 3 decades, i am ashamed of what they have become. They are now Big Blue. They have become what their founders hated. Think Different. Well Apple its time you Think Different. Start innovating again and listening to what we want. Stop making deals with companies that hurt your customers like AT&T. You walked away from NBC (as you said) so AT&T is a bully. I too have been waiting to buy a new mac, laptop, etc but they are not giving me what i need. Their hardware is dated and needs to be updated. They still don't have a mac that can kill at PC games, no quad core, no blu-ray, HDMI, etc. Seriously at your prices, i should be getting a lot more then coolness and social status.
Vote with your dollars folks and let Apple know that we the consumers are the ones with the power. They do what we want and not the other way around. Their big head needs to be shrunk. If you are a mac Fanboy/loyalist, then you must help Apple find its way again as it is drunk with power and blinded with greed. Steve Jobs lost his mind just like this and he was tossed out. Yeah his insanity/genius made Apple what it is today and saved them from ruin, but he is going over the edge again and now he has brainwashed cronies to do his bidding. So vote with your dollars don't buy their crap until they give us what we want and save Apple.
By the way Steve Jobs favorite phrase is "a sucker is born everyday". So, time for you to ask yourself, are you one?
