Apple Let me tell you, when what you teach and develop every day has the title "Innovation" attached to it, you reach a point where you tire of hearing about Apple. Without question, nearly everyone believes the equation Apple = Innovation is a fundamental truth--akin to the second law of thermodynamics, Boyle's Law, or Moore's Law. But ask these same people if they understand exactly how Apple comes up with their ideas and what approach the company uses to develop blockbuster products--whether it is a fluky phenomenon or based on a repeatable set of governing principles--and you mostly get a dumbfounded stare. This response is what frustrates me most, because people worship what they don't understand.

Couldn't agree more ;) I have to say that I haven't used any of their products, besides some Mac computer floating around for testing purposes, but there's one thing that bothers me most - the price. Yesterday I was looking at a brochure of tech shop, selling iPad for 600 euros (the lowest spec), and beneath was modestly sitting an Acer laptop, which was way better in tech/hardware specs and it was less than 400 euros ... That's pretty much enough for me, I promise to myself not to comment anymore on Apple like articles - the more comments and buzz they get, the longer the noise will be. And last, a quote from Apple mocking video clip - "We reinvet what was already reinvented ;) If you want revolution - put a second camera on it. Heck, we could even put three cameras, but they didn't fit ;) " Just for fun purposes :
