Now, Apple’s priorities have changed. Rather than make really great products that are mostly thin, they now make really thin products that are mostly great.
This concerns me more than you probably think it should. Not only does it represent compromised standards in areas I believe are important, but it suggests that they don’t have many better ideas to advance the products beyond making them thinner, and they’re willing to sacrifice anything to keep that going.
Universal “despair” with Apple’s current products is increasing… And rightfully so. It’s a mess, it’s misguided and it’s much lower value than Apple previously offered.
Something needs to change at Cupertino.
