When the best defense of a product consists of attacking the rival but not highlighting the excellence of the own product, but with attacks on the rival’s defects, by not using other terms, we reach a point where the roles and any iota are lost of reason is overshadowed by some unfortunate statements.
Steve Jobs was not my saint, but despite this I have to admit that He enjoyed a charisma, an aura, a vision of the future that is very far from everything that the figure of his successor represents., Tim Cook. One more CEO, a company puppet who does wrong in being the image of a brand like Apple that with statements such as those made recently does nothing more than demonstrate that Apple, despite whoever it may be, is not what it was.
The times of innovation, of marking the way, are far behind And despite the fact that their personal computers are still the best we find in the world of computing, their mobile devices have not only lost ground, but are now following the steps set by the competition, especially Android.
And it is with respect to the Google operating system, which Tim Cook has unleashed in his last interview, a bitter controversy, endorsing the hatred that Steve Jobs already had. Tim Cook talks about, and sorry for the expression, a crappy operating system and that the Android experience on a tablet is stretched-out **** with nothing to contribute. Declarations that are added to those of months ago, classifying the rest of mobile phones as junk.
But if this is not enough to raise dust, he also cites Motorola and its recent sale to Lenovo by Google, arguing that very few companies are able to dedicate themselves to the world of hardware and software and thus make the competition to Apple.
I’m not surprised. It seems like a logical transition. Google has disposed of something that is causing you to lose money, something that they are not committed to. I think it is very difficult to make hardware, software and services, and unite them all in one. This is what makes Apple so special. It’s really tough so it’s no wonder they don’t want to do that.
And to finish the job, a comparison of the fragmentation of Android in which it makes a parallel with the European Union versus the United States. Yes sir, an act of patriotism, both business and national.
The other thing is, Windows only does one thing. Android is like Europe. Europe is a name that for someone from America will not understand why Europe is a bunch of countries together that are not like the US states. They are very different. Android is many things. How many people who use a Kindle know that they are using Android? And you see how Samsung is also doing it by putting more and more layers of software on top. I think it’s night and day. The comparison is absurd.
I am not going to use any of the terms or thoughts that, after reading these statements, run through my head, as it would be falling into the same error. As an Apple user for many years (4 generations of iPhone and 3 of iPad have passed through my hands along with my current computers), I have a special affection for the brand, despite the path it has taken, so I do not like someone with this profile to guide the designs of such a distinguished company.
Because we are going to think …since when does Apple not launch something groundbreaking? A lot of talk about great products they are working on, but for now there is nothing at all and we have been like this for years. However, if you have opted for 8-inch tablets like the iPad mini or see the iPhone screen grow (5-inch soon?), Aspects that would surely cause deep disappointment in Steve Jobs.
With these statements Tim Cook reveals that he is afraid, a frightening dread of data in which Android leaves iOS in diapers and what is worse, the projection of one and the other offers unfavorable prospects for the bitten apple.
I am not going to judge if iOS 7 is better or worse, if the iPhone 5s, a great machine, could have been something else or if Apple should choose one way or the other, aspects for which Applesencia’s colleagues, in a reasonably critical way, will cover in much more depth.
In this article I only want put the unfortunate statements of Tim Cook, which either fed by fear or with the aim of satisfying users blinded by the brand, only serve to magnify on the one hand the figure of Android and on the other hand to serve as a tombstone on which to mourn the disappearance of Steve Jobs , a loss that has left Apple mired in a labyrinth from which it will be difficult to find the way out.
