mymemory said:This iPod is for spoil rich kids with insane parents or an Apple fan as fannatic as a Taliban. It has good features but forget about getting it for $399!!!! Never, who gets that thing is a very stupid person.
Steve Jobs is under terrible consuling or is under too much pot. This propusal is not realistic at all. If Apple does something like this again is going down.
This unit may work for an audio engeneer to record some conference or rock band on the field in place of buying a expensive DAT machine, that is the only real good market this machinne is gonna have.
People on this board bashed the mini when it came out...saying it wouldn't sell.jackieonasses said:We have opened up many threads about that.
I wasn't a member then, but i can attest that most of them were not old...
I don't think we will be like that now.
Yes i know, Plenty of people still complain because Apple focuses so much on iPod. I think it is the gateway to marketshare -and more importantly- Better products in the long run.Blue Velvet said:There are still a few posters who can immediately see the potential of the iPod. Also interesting to note how many nay-sayers aren't still regular posters...
Maybe i am a Mac-fanboy - But when you said that people thought the mini wouldn't sell is a generalization. Heck - that is the bridge that the iPod has allowed (by revenue) all i am saying is, Take only some people's advice. Because most of the people who think those things would fail, were newbs...TenderBranson said:People on this board bashed the mini when it came out...saying it wouldn't sell.
Someone even started a petition to inform apple that consumers weren't stupid enough to NOT pay $50 for 15 more gigs. Everyone here thought it would fail.
We all know what happened.
Think back a few months ago. Remember how many people thought the shuffle would crash and burn? We've made little improvement in "predicting" success since the debut of the original ipod
Then again it's so easy to laugh at these posts with 20/20 hind-sight. Look what happened to the Newton and the Cube.All that hype for an MP3 player? Break-thru digital device? The Reality Distiortion Field is starting to warp Steve's mind if he thinks for one second that this thing is gonna take off.
Oh.. How wrong he was.This isn't revoltionary!
I still can't believe this! All this hype for something so ridiculous! Who cares about an MP3 player? I want something new! I want them to think differently!
Why oh why would they do this?! It's so wrong! It's so stupid!
