From a reader who I’ll call “Dustin”:
I think this comes back to a familiar problem. Apple people don’t realize that Apple products are specialist products. Specialist review sites (I’m thinking of places like silentpcreview) are all well aware that they’re catering to a specialist audience. But Apple reviewers seem to think that the Apple way is the right way for everybody, everywhere, all the time.
Cue responses that cite iPad and iPhone sales numbers!
