If you make a product too good the first time around you are going to have a hard time getting people to upgrade to the next version. I think the iPod Touch is a perfect example.
    The selling point of an Apple product has never been about technical specs or hardware, and people who complain about not having this or that particular piece of technology are kind of missing the point.

    Rather, the Apple approach has always been about looks - that uncluttered, industrial-minimalist style (viz Jonny Ive) - and, for want of a better term, "pleasure to use". Making a device practical and easy to use, supported by some slick marketing, has worked something fierce for them, simply looking at the size of their market share.

    There are still plenty of things which can be improved (starting with that dreadful iTunes software) - but by and large, there's a reason why Apple is so easily and readiy embraced by people who like their products, and most of them will tell you it is not about hardware.

    I don't agree with either of you on this at all. It's a COMBINATION of tech spec advances AND looks/feel of the product that have given Apple such a market leading position. Not the total objective of being maxed out to the limit on tech but still 'out there' whilst the looks side def out there...
