‘Apple must’ be dead

The Walking Dead

You hear it all the time: “Apple is gouging its customers and only gets away with it because its customers are stupid and the company is good at marketing.”

They’re wrong of course, all the same such blind Apple hatred has driven some otherwise intelligent people to come up with a mountain of “Apple is doomed” style drivel across the decades — and you can cast your eye on some of these claims over at the MacObserver Apple Death Knell Counter. There you’ll learn Apple has been declared dead 64 times since April ’95. Here is a laughable example of what happens when people submit to the anti-Apple Kool Aid Death Kult:

Apple’s in big trouble. They’re sitting on piles of cash, but they are sitting on a closed system. In biology, in history, a closed system never survives.”

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    I love the quote from Apple Death Knell #64, “it will become a zombie, if they don’t come up with an iWatch.” Me personally don’t care about the iWatch. Samesung’s watch phone is annoying and will get old fast. I mean who wants to talk to their wrist for 30 minutes.

      I think that’s the point — Samsung’s preemptive imitation showed Apple what it shouldn’t do. I think the actual product will be something which doesn’t turn you into a jerk!
