Oh man you have to love Steve Jobs…and Apple $aapl
He delivered again today with the new product announcements.
Everyone wants a microwave of consumer electronics…’The GINSU/Swiss Army POD’ and thank goodness he does not offer it.
Instead he will make you own the whole line…an iPhone, an iTouch (for just gaming), a Desktop, A Macbook, a Mac Mini, The new iPod Nano (looks wicked) , the little clip on doohickey pod…etc…
I am only surprised their was not an ‘iPod Liver’ announced today.
Apple owns free and Apple owns paid. The iPhone developers hate him because he would like to instill some rules to the chaos. Whatever!
Waaaaaa i want a tablet….Waaaa I want a camera…….Waaaaa I want my app approved….
Meanwhile, despite their imperfect behavior, Apple has built billion dollar segments from scratch (app store), in the face of immense legacy competition (iPhone) and from chaos (music).
Call me old fashioned, but I like the predictabillity of Apple and Steve Jobs. I like winners.
I am fine with paying up for the goodness.
I love Twitter too and it’s the opposite…free, careless, and every time I load…unpredictable. It’s getting to the point that it better be free forever, but I digress.
I believe the only mistake Steve Jobs made was not buying a near busted regional bank to one day take on the the banking industry and Wall Street…he still might.
Oh and AT&T…
You know what…I hate Apple for that one.
