As a shareholder and customer, I must say, Apple is able to pull off a gargantuan feat with precision and efficiency every year. It explains their rising market cap and sustained demand for a 7+ year old product cycle. Which other company could roll out products with such perfect timing, on date, launch a major OS upgrade for free, and have a deep pipeline of unreleased products? Not even Microsoft in its hey-days had such efficiency. Sure, there will be snafus and missed shipments, bugs and design improvements, but that goes with software/hardware development and global logistics. In other news, Scotland might shake up the United Kingdom, and the EU tomorrow.
