In fact, I am repeatedly faced with theatres that have shitty surround systems BECAUSE they've been running at too high a volume that they've become damaged, or where no one has properly balanced the speakers and the center channel is completely drowned out by the rest, making the dialog almost impossible to hear.

Specialty products for special people.While I don't know if Jobs ever actually said this, this line about the Mac from the Steve Jobs movie fits with his overall direction:
"It's for the grandma, the garbage man, the [common man]." (Too make their lives better)
I watched these commercials and felt zero connection to them, the people in them or the product they were espousing....
The Mac line has devolved into a specialty product. A niche product....
mystigo said:What triggers me is having the power button opposite the volume buttons. I absolutely hate that about the iPhone. My camera roll is full of screenshots because I accidentally registered a click on the volume button while pressing the power button side.
I can't count how many times I have turned the phone off while trying to increase the volume.
