What really works is the marketing department, there is no denying that it is second to none. Apple is not alone is producing duds, but they somehow get a pass and that just baffles me.
Don't you understand yet.
It is an addiction when people believe that they just can't get along without "it".
All of us here on this site are addicted to books, to devices, but some are more affected than others.
If Samsung, if Sony, if Asus pulled their products from the market tomorrow, and if in fact if Amazon and Google pulled theirs as well, I would be sad, but still I would firmly believe that I would be ok, that the next group of manufactures in line would do pretty well for what I wanted.
The Apple people would be much more upset. The "magic" would be gone.
