Apple creates a portable mp3 player. MP3 market explodes.
Apple creates a touch-screen smart phone. Touch-screen smart phone market explodes.
Apple creates a tablet. Tablet market explodes.
Apple creates an "ultrabook" for consumers. Ultrabook for consumers market explodes.
Lol, Don't call me an "apple fanboy" because I don't even own any apple products. But I think it's funny how everyone hates on them, yet they are one creating all these markets, while everyone else is riding on Apple's coat tails, copying and cloning their designs.

Replace "create" with "properly markets to the average person" and you're pretty right. Most technology companies just can't seem to market anything they create (at least not to the masses), even if it's vastly superior to anything else on the market.
"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
