Cult of Mac
This sort of sums up the current arrogant attitude of Apple. The company that branded itself through their think different campaign has more and more become the company of do it our way because we know best.
Clearly this business model continues to be successful for them, but increasing one can hear grumbling from their the power users and creative types who aren't in the market for an Internet appliance, but who actually try to do work with their machines. Unfortunately these users are increasingly being seen by Apple as unimportant niche markets that they will no longer cater too.
What we'll do at that point isn't clear, since the alternatives such as Windows and Linux are unsatisfactory. So I suppose we'll just put up with the abusive relationship.
