    Default Dear Apple

    Recently found this. I think some of the points made in this letter are very true, especially the one regarding the counterculture.
    Enjoy.

    Success does that to things, you know. When you win your war, you happen to become what you were fighting against.

    The hipster is now mainstream. Congrats to Apple. On the long list of issues the author points out... Well, I guess all mobile OS' have something that users don't like. We of all people should know that!

    My longtime Apple-buying brother-in-law announced he had purchased his last iPhone after he got the iPhone5, and the general tone of his listing complaints made me wonder if he'd purchased a BlackBerry - his wording was nearly identical to what we're used to hearing regarding RIM (from people posting on CB).

    You weren’t the first company to make a smartphone (Nokia Communicator, anyone?) but you were the first to do it well.
    Apparently, the ex-fanboi here hasn't heard of the BlackBerry. So long Ed, but honestly, no one really gives a $h!t that you're leaving Apple.
