Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

Again - you do not like Apple products, don't buy them. This is a very "hippie" attitude to the issues you are wittering on about, but your entire line of hatred assumes that Apple cares about your opinion. They don't. This is what really pisses the haters off. If the CEO's reaction to your opinion is simple "buy something that makes you happy" it's extremely hard not to sound foolish. But, still you carry on.


You are either stupid or you are deliberately misleading yourself and others. There are numerous instances of jobs publicly trying to put a spin on justifiable negative publicity (iPhone 4 comes to mind). Therefore your statement IS false. Besides the purpose of comments on this and similar websites is not to provide feedback or to influence any CEO but to share opinions and experiences between users and in some case professionals.

For someone who is wrong that was a very condescending post. At the "antennagate" event Jobs said:

1. We don't think this is a problem, every phone does it
2. If you think it's a problem we have 2 solutions for you
a) a free case
b) return the device within 30 days and get all your money back

That is the exact same, "we hope you like it but if you don't please buy something else" attitude described by henderson101.

So how, exactly, was he wrong?
