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."

WRONG, I'm sorry and I have heard that excuse before and as a retailer I can tell you that YOU ARE WRONG and here is why:

Depending on the model SOME will shutdown when you press the button, SOME will go into hybrid sleep and SOME will go into hibernate...now quick, if you can't use the button because its a laptop and you need to actually shut the thing down and the power puts it to sleep, what do you do?

So I'm sorry but just like the keyboard commanders and their "Oh you just need to (bunch of lame keyboard crap nobody knows or will remember) you have just 1.- Adding a problem that didn't exist before, 2.- Adding unneeded complexity to what is supposed to be intuitive, 3.- Made what should be universal behavior completely random depending on the make and model.

So I'm sorry abut again that is NOT innovation, that is BROKEN DESIGN. Heck i built my own PC and I can tell you the default behavior on this particular motherboard is NOT shutdown when you push the button but S3 sleep!
