    Where do these nimrods come from??? This evaluation is so mired in "conventional" thinking it falls into the same genre as, the iPod won't work -- it's too expensive and it uses a DRM system. Luckily, such idiots don't run Apple... but they do influence investors and as such should be given large doses of propofol... before their next breath.

    That is probably why I submitted as an "opinion'd" piece even it is uninformed. ;)

    The easiest thing to do in the world is criticize.


    Nothing risked, nothing believed in. Which is not how Apple works.

    The first line of this article is, "Let's play a game."

    Indeed, Judging by the looks of him, the author should be playing a Game entitled, Eat Less.

    Ahhh, a "Premature Launch," something I gather our friend here is quite accustomed to.

    One thing that the author fails, utterly, to take into account is the fact that Apple isn't only selling to traditional smartphone buyers. Apple is selling the iPhone to affluent cell phone users period. There is no better looking cellular telephone out there, and whereas the smartphone market is limited, by the fact that the phones ar business oriented, ugly, and a little clunky, the iPhone is only limited by the depths of your changepurse, and I'll bet that every rich punk will have one of these puppies on his christmas list.
