Late last week, Jason Snell posted an excellent article over at Macworld.com, discussing some of the ways in which Apple has stumbled over the past year. Apple has attempted to do many things recently, and they haven’t all succeeded. As Snell asks:
“It makes you wonder: why did Apple decide to launch a brand-new phone, a major software update, the iPhone App Store, and a new Web service, all on the same day? I suppose the company thought it would make a big splash, and it did—but it was caused by a belly flop.”
There are no simple answers here, but it’s definitely worthwhile to ask why these problems are occurring, and how they can be avoided in the future. Read Snell’s entire piece for much more.
