OSNews, Generic OSes It's not the return of the OSNews comic, but it was too good to let pass. Our coverage of the Apple event was minimal this week, so I decided to round the key points up in an illustration...

Because Apple don't target you or give a flick what you think - and neither do they need to. They've targeted the 90%+ of users out there who couldn't give a crap about those things. Which is exactly the point missed by those who believe Android 3 is a game changer. It's not just about the user experience on the device, it's about making the whole thing easy enough that anyone, irrespective of level of IT expertise, can use it. Apple know very well that the likes of you are not going to buy their products anyway, but they're good with that because they know that what they've produced appeals to their target audience.


You've nailed it. When people on this forum scoff at others for not "rooting" their phones, or proclaim people idiots for downloading an infected app like CHESS from the Android Market...you know they live in their own little world. And...it also affects so-called technology experts. You'll love the following link:

It's amazing how many people have fallen on their faces predicting the demise of the iPad. Thank goodness for the internet and caches.
