Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

The article is ostensibly about Apple, but I think it's really a criticism of tech journalists, who lazily keep hoping for something new and exciting for Apple in spite of continually insisting Apple's wellspring of innovation has run dry.

So really, the article is: "Tech journalists keep getting it wrong."

The complainers inhabit this forum, too. Have a look for all the comments that complain that Apple's iOS GUI is stale/outdated. Really? Bored already?
