You can't deny it, Apple really is dead without Steve Jobs. Yes, there were flaws when Steve Jobs was still around, but this? This is a ton of flaws and disappointments. I'm not an iSheep to keep praising Apple for these flaws or ignore them. iOS 6 I don't think I can say anything else other than that. iPhone Make it larger, faster and LTE. Sell it. That's pretty much what Apple did with the iPhone 5. And they're calling it the biggest thing to happen since the iPhone. That's just dumb. What has a speed bump have to say with the introduction of the Retina Display of the iPhone 4? I think you would agree that the Retina Display from no Retina Display is a larger upgrade than 3.5 to 4. What has LTE have to say with the introduction of the App Store on the iPhone 3G? LTE is nothing compared to the App Store. I can't accept the excuse "OH, technology needs it's break sometimes. We don't always have mind blowing features every year". Because the 4S was disappointing. It's a speed bump+camera+siri. Tell me, how much so you even use Siri? The statistics say that an average user uses Siri once a month. I call it useless. So basically, it's just speed bump+camera. Let's compare speed bump+camera to iPhone 4's FaceTime+Retina Display+Extreme new redesign+Flash and front camera+speed bump. How can you even say a Speed bump+camera is a large increase? Here's another excuse: Not all users go from 4S to 5, you know. I understand. But apparently, a ton of iPhone 4S users are switching to the 5. And iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 would just simply be speed bump+siri+camera+larger display+LTE. I would call that a great not-disappointing update if those updates WERE the updates of the 4S, not the 5. And the design. It looks 80% like the 4S, the 4S looks 100% like the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 looks 50% like the iPhone 3GS. They're not redesigning it at all. They just made it bigger and make the back aluminum with those disgusting bars (Yes, I still think they're disgusting). And they called it "An entirely new design". Yeah, right. Mac OS X "Forget the maps app fiasco: When will Apple apologize for Lion upgrade?" Need I say more? Mountain Lion What are the changes? -Notification Center -Game Center + Apps barely anyone uses -New way of updating Apps -A new look of the dock (OH! APPLE IS SO REVOLUTIONARY!) Where's the killer feature? I don't even use Notification Center. Game Center? Nope. Reminders? Nope. Notes? Barely. Messages? I use my phone for that. Compare this to the upgrade we had from Panther to Tiger. Or Tiger to Leopard. Or Snow Leopard to Lion. This isn't much, and it's just a bunch of apps. This should be Mac OS X 10.7.5 . It's a shame to call it a new Major OS. Hardware Apple doesn't care about Pros anymore. Look at the discontinuation of the 17 Inch MacBook Pro. Look at the not-even-an-upgrade of the Mac Pro. They're peeing on our shoes and telling us it's rain. Not even Thunderbolt. Speaks volumes of how much attention Apple pays to the pro market. That felt like a slap in the face. EarPods 3 Years of hard work? I doubt it. Yes, it's a better upgrade to Apple's old earphones, but still crap. I can barely hear anything when I'm on a train. Noisy people on that environment. I had a much better experience with Samsung's earphones. It even has stronger bass. This is a gimmick. Unimpressed. iPad The first iPad was revolutionary. The second iPad? Put a crappy camera on it, make it thinner and faster. Sell it. The third iPad? Improve the camera, faster, Retina Display, sell it. By far, the killer feature is the Retina Display. Out of two generations, only one is the killer feature. It's nice that it actually has a killer feature but I'm afraid to find out if the next iPad is just exactly the same with A6X. Judging from what Apple is currently doing, I have a strong feeling that that's exactly what will happen. I'll probably see banners around saying "The biggest leap since the original iPad." Hidden Failures Ping. MobileMe. The Apple days will be over if all they're going to do is add some useless updates and speed bumps on their next generation of products. And when it's over, I'm switching. For now, Apple is still somehow more advanced than the competition, and I have to thank Steve for that. But now that he's gone, the true spirit of Apple might disappear, and return to how it was before Steve Jobs - nearly bankrupt. And who's the next person to save Apple? Can Tim Cook really fill Steve's shoes after all these flaws?
