ReadWriteWeb’s Sarah Perez has written a great bird’s-eye view of the current state of things in the mobile technology industry. It is really unfortunate that the author is correct in his points.
But here is the best line from the article:
Many consumers wait for a company to tell them, “this is the answer, this is beautiful, this is perfect.” Apple’s messaging does exactly that, and while, on a personal level, the increasingly pretentious commercials drive me a little batty at times, (“when technology gets out of the way…that’s when you leap forward…iPad2”), at least Apple isn’t asking for us to believe in a prototype.

There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
