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

    With so many “fails” we would have to assume that Apple is DOOMED®. 😉
    And with so many “gates”, Apple should open it’s own airport, right?

    We can either believe that this is the first time in recorded history that Apple has ever had “bugs” to squash, or we can put our “remember” hats on, and recall that Apple has ALWAYS dealt with bugs in the past (and has usually come up with a solution or fix very quickly).

    In fact, some of the recent complaints are really baseless, and seem to be the usual, exaggerated “disasters” that sporadically get concocted by people with an anti-Apple axe to grind… And which soon gets promoted into “hyper”-drive by the media.

    The most recent example of this type of Chicken Little “horrors” is the HomePod’s circle-of-doom. That is that the silicone base on the HomePod can possibly leave temporary makes on unprotected wooden furniture (without a hard-coat finish).

    The truth is that ANYTHING with a silicone base will have the SAME effect and leave marks on some oiled or untreated wood surfaces. This is nothing “new”, and it certainly does not ONLY pertain to the HomePod.

    For example, an article with photos appeared today on Tom’s Guide, showing that the Sonos One speaker, which also has silicone pads on the bottom of the speaker, leaves similar marks on the same type of wood surfaces.

    These types of “fails” need to be put into perspective, and should be examined further before submitting to a knee-jerk reaction.

      oh I do not think they are doomed. I do think it makes sense for everyone to take a week or two off, go somewhere nice, and re-focus.

    You write: “Why not let the competition make a few errors for a while?” They do. All the time. But their name in any article is not clickbait. Apple’s is. So people know about every little Apple misstep, but not necessarily about the other guys’.

      Oh don’t be silly — read the other 20,000+ things I’ve written which don’t knock Apple across the last 20 years. I”m not a hater. But sometimes harder things need to be said.
