Same opinion here. Although Apple probabbly are following the crowd, it is necessary to make a product that is cheaper and smaller. However, I don't think this would be a smart move in the long-run, since this kind of "maximize profit strategy" could only effective in short-run.
Anyway, hope they will bring more of breakthrough products in the future.
