Here are some comments on the announcement of Apple’s “newest” digital device:
“I was so hoping for something more.”
“Great just what the world needs.”
“Heres an idea Apple – rather than enter the world of gimmicks and toys, why dont you spend a little more time sorting out your pathetically expensive line up? Or are you really aiming to become a glorified consumer gimmicks firm?”
“I still can’t believe this! All this hype for something so ridiculous! Who cares? I want something new! I want them to think differently!”
“Why oh why would they do this?! It’s so wrong! It’s so stupid!”
“Come on everyone, y’all are saying it sucks before you have even held it in your hand.”
“The reason why everyone’s dissapointed is because we had our hopes up for this incredible device.”
Pretty typical commentary.
Except, all of the above is taken from the forums at Macrumors and all of the above, and more, are referring to the launch of the original iPod.
Some things never change.
