Boring

Great observation from Harry Marks that echoes what Abdel Ibrahim said last week:

Nothing Apple announced last week was “boring.” What was announced was stable, cohesive, well-designed, beautiful, iterative, and on many levels, innovative, but not “boring.” What are boring are the proclamations from the bloggers on high who expect Apple to reinvent the wheel every year, when the majority of users don’t want to learn a new UI or button configuration with the arrival of a new moon.

There is an ever-widening gap between the tech pundits who want to be kicked in the head every time there’s a new product release, and the average consumer who just wants a better device, not just a different device. Via DF.
