I don't agree with the Apple model of doing things however they obviously hit the mark with some products. For people who don't want to think, don't want to make complex decisions (such as what color to buy a product in) Apple is the company. They offer limited choices and only charge you a premium price for that ability. While Microsoft and Linux offer a variety of choices for lower costs.

Too much profit and nothing better?...Thats FAIL!!! and it seems that we have more sheep (morons) than ever before. apple should be getting a lesson about creating satisfaction to the people but with that reward seems impossible...so you better prepare for more shitty devices
Blackberry's are not made in China..
So there is still an option, just don't look at the playbook.. yeesh.
