At last, I may shop Apple.
With Steve Jobs gone, I am 50% more likely to shop at Apple, if they did away with I-Tunes, would would be another 50% likely, which would put them on an even table with the other products that compete with theirs. I was really considering purchasing one of the new Ipad2 when they came out, I was right on the edge, I saw a video of Steve Jobs extolling the virtues of his new product he he convinced me. I became certain at that moment, not to purchase an IPad. Good sales there Steve. Here is an idea for ya, if your going to sell a tech product, you may want to spend a little bit of time telling us what it has rather than trash talking the competition. I realize that he played the "little man" behind Microsoft for so long that he is afraid of the competition but come on! For years, Apple has sold, average products while they were viewed as selling master pieces and they were priced as masterpieces. I have yet to see a single innovative product that they have sold that can match in price and capabilities their competitors. They will frequently just nudge out a product in some categories while being just less in other categories while being in some cases 200% higher in price. They are simply marketing on a name brand. When my sons decided they needed I-Pods, I showed them several products that beat every single feature of the I-Pods that were in several cases less than half the price and they still simply had to have the I-Pod cause that is what all of their friends have. I purchased the I-Pod and a Creative Labs product on the same day. Received them both and within a week my son was begging to trade his I-Pod for my Creative Labs. I made the trade with him and I am sure the I-Pod is still in a drawer somewhere?
