I read it, its not really blog spam at all. They're all valid points that are effecting apple, and they're all relatively new issues.

Especially the airplay thing though. Especially that.

In fact, when people buy Apple's latest product, the company is usually already preparing its replacement, says technology consultant Patchen Barrs
Really, this is just Apple's way of doing things? I would think that pretty much every company is preparing replacements of their products.

Most of these things are just customer stupidity. The first point is the most ridiculous - Apple isn't forcing you to upgrade each year! Some people...

There's a very specific reason why older Macs don't support Airplay Mirroring, it's that in newer Macs, H.264 encoding is done in the GPU while older ones did it with the CPU.

I've got an idea. Lets stop innovating so that nobody ever suffers technological obsolescence. In fact, lets all get back to the same starting point. Anyone ready for a return to caveman era?

I'm not saying that it's not a valid reason, rather that it's also a valid reason why people might be upset.

Wow, so they literally fault Apple for releasing too many updated products and then blast them for not releasing new products. Sure, there is a minor difference, but it's still pretty ridiculous. Terrible article.

Back when there was no taxes, no debt, clean water and women in fur bikini? Sign me up.:D Yaba daba doo!:cool:

Anyhow, the article was nothing more than an attack at :apple:. Blaming them for something an app developer does. Oh yeah, the in game purchasing is totally Apple's fault.:rolleyes: Android apps don't have in game purchasing.:rolleyes::rolleyes: Let's bash :apple: for doing what the rest of the industry does, only at a quicker pace.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Good gawd. My eyes almost rolled out of their sockets from all the eye rolling I did reading that tripe.

Pointless article.

Of course things are oudated when you buy them. they have to be engineered tested designed and all that before they are released. that takes a while. they are however not outdates in the term of what can be purchased right now.
Most cars take 5+ years to develop, doesnt mean they are outdatedwhen they are released just because the company has been working on next years model for the past for years right.
development of the F22 started in the 80s to my knowledge. still doesnt mean its outdated and there is mainly nothing better.
I dont want to spark arguments here but its plan simple, a product or whatever is not outdated for the consumer or buyer just because something better is being developed

Yahoo! tries to make every story sensational.

I guarantee you there will probably be an article in the upcoming months saying "What Microsoft doesn't want you to know"
