The Macalope Daily: Look at me!

Like old bread.
And the analysts want something new, fresh, and innovative.
If Samsung completely rewrote and redesigned TV no one would notice. It is Samsung after all. But if Apple did it then everyone can complain that it isn't what they expected while at the same time praising Samsung for copying it.
Just wait for it.

PRECISELY! Anyone with an ounce of observational ability can look at the history of the consumer electronics/computing industry and see that Apple has been at the forefront of each of the major categories, creating the bulk of the "new ideas" that Samsung, et al have brazenly copied without so much as a licensing fee or a thank you. I purposely try to pay as little attention as possible to the insanity and legalized gambling/manipulation that is the stock market. It is absolute madness that due to the ravings of weirdos at Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and others that Apple's stock is DOWN when they post a record quarter. Sorry, what was I thinking. This is planet Earth!

Now they are clamouring for Apple to make a cheap phone.
They have one high standard for Apple and a real low standard for the rest and even when they lose money they are given a pass including those who missed expectations.

Why? Because any person with half a brain knows that, in order to be successful, a corporation must conduct business according to the tenets of the salutary science of hierarchiology, better known as the "Peter Principle".
Meanwhile, it is obvious to people (and horned ruminants) whose brains developed beyond the halfway mark that the risk of promoting a brilliant and productive member of an organization to a level beyond their level of ability might be a bad idea. Just look at Microsoft, minus the brilliant and productive pre-promotion part.

And you have to admire Douglas Adams' genious for turning his experience with corporate buffoonery into
satiric gold. Much like the Macalope.
