Am I the only one sick to death of iPod mania?
I start my day with MacSurfer. It is an excelent Mac centric news headline Site with a amattering of general computing thrown in. Lately, almost every headline has been about the iPod in some form or other. As far as the press is concerned, the only thing Apple has going for it is the iPod. Wall Street seems to agree. No one is excited about any of Apple's computer hardware offerings. Rather than creating a halo effect, such lopsided intrest only serves to further marginalize the Mac. The message that you get from all this is "Hey, look! Apple finally did something right!" That does not make people want to go out and purchase the perceived failures. Apple is in serious need of a Mac product that can generate the attention that the iPod currently enjoys. Otherwise, the Mac brand will slowly erode to the point of irrelavence, if it hasn't already.
