What would you expect from a certified member of the anti-Apple screenwriters association who has a lifetime membership in the nattering nabobs of negativism charter school for wayward journalists?
I used to think the world could be divided into two simple categories: Those who wear Birkenstocks and those who understand that doing so is visually akin to growing their nasal hairs to nipple-level.
OK. That says something about perspective, amirite?
Apple’s Tim Cook:
We’re anxious to see the customers for the new AirPod Pro. But I would guess that one, particularly in the early going, will be people that have AirPods today and want to also have a pair for the times they need noise cancellation.
He said one. I would have gone with a few, or perhaps some, but one is OK. Unless your job is to twist and distort a seemingly innocuous situation into an eyeball-grabbing headline with little merit for your eyes.
Apple’s CEO believes his customers are so wealthy and so very sensitive that they will take time to consider: “Hmm, is this a moment when I want to shut the world out? Or would my central nervous system prefer to hear a few tinges of intonation from the world outside?”
I read the same words but came up with a different interpretation. I gave the article to half a dozen friends and they sided with my view.
Some Apple customers will buy the new ones and hold– for now– their old ones. I do that with my iPads, iPhones, and Macs. Resale value enters the equation and so does hand-me-down tradition.
True Apple fanpersons must consider whether to pair their $199 AirPods (with charging case) with $249 AirPods Pro. Otherwise, will they be true Apple fanpersons?
I consider myself a true Apple fanperson (not really a word, according to Grammerly) and I ordered AirPods Pro and will keep my AirPods for awhile, but that sure doesn’t make me rich.
