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."

Companies by there nature have one single motivation: to make more money (keep shareholers happy and profits up).


While companies have different philosophies and some varying methods, make no mistake - profit is the single goal.

Therefore, every company by it's very nature SHOULD be bashed once in a while Be it Microsoft, IBM, HP, or any other company. They will screw someone to make a buck. They will cut corners. They will lie. That's a company.

So yeah, Apple can get bashed once in a while. Did the person mention any of that? No?

Then go back under your bridge.

What was your point? All companies should be bashed to keep them honest? This is an absurd comment that lacks any sense of reality. Yes companies are out to make money but if thier sole purpose was to screw people they would go under.

My point is every company should be bashed when they deserve it. Publicly, if needed, to keep them honest. Sometimes a company or it's fanboys need to be knocked down a few pegs. I do believe that companies that can get away with it will screw customers as much as they can.

I'm not talking about mom/pop shops, but corporations are as evil and greedy as those running them.

So yes. Apple should be bashed if they have a tendency to release a crappy first gen of products. I'm not saying they do or do not, mind you. I do the same thing to MS with bugs, or any other vendor.
