Who out there is a fan of the direction, or directions, that Apple is taking lately?
The latest controversy invloves the TV ad for the new Mac/Intel computers. It seems that a few years ago, a music video by The Postal Service (the music group not the U.S. government entity) was made by the same people that did the current TV ad. And boy it sure has the same look. Ironically, their music video is #1 on iTunes now. Now that’s funny.
This and the other voices of concern that have been raised seem to point to the inevitable conclusion that all companies that become large tend to look like lumbering oxen, and all start to think the same (not different). Be careful what you ask for Mac users. As you become more popular, your favorite company will start to take on a striking resemblance to, dare I say, Microsoft? The cuteness of Apple being the hip, forward thinking company, and the other guys being dull and boring is starting to wear pretty thin. Can you say iPod virus?
