Great list from Barbara Marie Brannan on how Apple manages to succeed despite the constant cries of imminent failure.
Apple Insults Customers – This one raises its nasty head every few years when Apple dares to think different. This year it’s the iPhone 7’s missing headphone jack, which raised plenty of negative noise even before Wednesday’s presentation and introduction of a jack-less iPhone. Sorry. But that’s the price of moving the industry forward, and Apple has done it time and again. USB ports, no floppy disk, no SuperDrive, no ethernet cable, Lightning cable, SSDs vs. hard disk drives, and many others create a long list where Apple could have been considered anti-customer, but instead made life better for a growing number of customers at the expensive whiny cry-baby critics. What other computer, smartphone, tablet company with major stature has a Genius Bar?
Apple is unique and not in any imminent danger.
