A gold MacBook with just ONE USB port? Apple, you're DRUNK


One Day Late and a Dollar Over

Was a general comment for failed projects from an old Boss of mine. A very laconic mid westerner with a wonderful set of phrases.

But Apples business model for new products seems built on an extreme version of this..

Products that compared to the rest of the market are several years late and a few hundred dollars over.

A £300 watch that isn't wateproof ,

A camera phone that doesn't lie flat on the desk,

An ultra thin laptop that relies on one socket for power and peripherals; that's gonna be really robust .

None of that is good engineering design, it's fashion design and crap fashion at that.
