please check: Jobs never said that!

it looks like that you are in RDF ;) and you wish that Jobs said that ;)

yours (and all Apple haters) problem is that you NEVER listen what Steve have to say really - all you do is just looking for something that you could turn around and make him look like a boozo or bad person... it is a shame.


Seriously? What an idiot most of you Apple fans have become. This is a PERFECT example of the RDF!

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57486828-37/steve-jobs-7-inch-tab...

In this article you get the exact verbatim transcript from 2010 of Jobs dissing the 7" tablets and obviously stating that Apple had no interest in apps for the 7" nor a 7" iPad as 10" was perfect according to their research and development.

So, was it a bait and switch? Maybe Cook is smart enough to realize Apple needs to look to that market as well?

Facts are facts even if you think they aren't.

He said "These are among the reasons we think the current crop of 7-inch tablets are going to be DOA, dead on arrival."

The reasons are 6 in total, 3 related to the screen size, 3 aren't. It's about the "current crop", this was in October 2010. How well did those 7" tablets do? I can't even name any.

I can only conclude that he was right at that moment in time. Now Apple can put more pixels on the screen, meaning a smaller iPad can still display everything a normal iPad can. They couldn't do that in 2010, meaning a 7" iPad would have sucked.

Many of us predicted that eventually Apple would do a 7" and the faithful followers were respond exactly as you have.

Humans are sadly predictable when they refuse to think critically.

I won't try debate with you further. Enjoy your morning.

@TM99 can you diluted mind (thank you for calling me "idiot") process this informations?

it is unbelievable how easy you mark someone as fanboy and dismiss his opinion and continue to live in RDF where Steve Jobs apparently said: "never would they produce a 7"...

this is something that all fandroids do: take out of context Steve words and make him look like idiot.


btw I did buy 7" Android tablet two yours ago... and use it for one month before I sold it.
