Our problem with Apple

Chuq Von Rospach has a great piece about how Apple could have avoided much of the controversy following last week’s Mac event. It’s a great read, but the one line I will remember is that one:
We demand Apple innovate, but we insist they don’t change anything.
This truly resonated with me because it’s a feeling I’ve had for a long time but never was able to express in a clear and simple manner. Chuq did in in just eleven words.

Scott Forstall and Apple: no hard feelings, really

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal about his new role as a Broadway producer, Scott Forstall had few but nice things to say about Apple:
Asked about the split, Mr. Forstall said he was “so proud of the thousands of people I worked with [at Apple] and with whom I remain friends. I am delighted that they continue to turn out great and beloved products.”
The whole interview is an interesting read, along as you care about either Scott Forstall or musicals in general.
