Apple "It's not that I despise Apple or the wonderful products it showcases year after year, but the fact that almost every first generation Apple product has serious quality assurance issues bugs me beyond belief. Let's take a look at two of Apple's most successful products, the company's portable music player and its notebook series."

Do you remember the Apple III? The system that Jobs gave the engineers impossible specs to work with and told them they couldn't use a fan because it was "asthetically unappealing and noisy"? remeember what happened? The systems ran so hot they warped their motherboards and popped chips right out of their sockets over time.

I don't think you remember the Apple III. I don't think you "remember" any of this. I've seen these exact same words in almost the same order before. Either you're borrowing this from someone else or you're the only one saying it and saying it every chance you get.

What I remember about the Apple III is that one of my classrooms had one, and it worked fine. If they survived institutional use without becoming a bubbling cauldron of magma, then one of us must be exaggerating.
