Glorious when I said being nasty I guess the word stupid set me off. I may not have the writing skills you have but I do have ideas.
I never said you didn't, and I never said that all your ideas were bad. I said that a particular idea of yours was stupid: The thought that Apple should allow outside hardware.
I said this only because it nearly killed them in the early-to-mid 90s, whereas the moment they dumped that idea upon Job's return and invented the original iMac Apple started on a path to UTTERLY INSANE PROFITABILITY. Like, they're literally the most profitable company in history,
It's one thing to say that the conventional wisdom is wrong and than argue how. It's entirely another to ignore it completely and advocate things entirely contrary to it. In a case like this, in which I've seen *TWO* movies that dramatically pivot on Job's return to Apple and the start of his collaboration with Ive, and there's another huge movie that I've yet to see, you must contend with that.
Until you do, yes, it's a stupid idea. Sorry.
Also when I said Apple making a aluminum case it was meant for them to put their hardware in not to sell on the open market as a ATX case anyone could buy.
But that isn't different than advocating a return to the pre-2012 Mac Pro, which you also advocated. So, I mean, what would you expect me to think to you actually meant?
I know I get misinterpreted a lot on these glorious forums but you never see me calling anyone's idea stupid or anything like that.
I don't want to tell you man, it's an outrageously dumb idea for the reasons I've listed, and you just ignore them. That's an incredibly strange thing to do when both Hollywood *and* Business Academia have turned Jobs into a saint (if not a outright GOD)and treat the moment where he explicitly decided to STOP doing what you recommend now as the inflection point for drama & strategic vision. Plus, you know, Apple is making so much money that words cannot convey its quantity.
I wish no one anything bad I respect everyone opinion and I expect the same.
Your opinion is clearly just naked wish fulfillment, and the wish itself isn't very coherent. Why does that demand respect?
