"their aim every time was to disrupt existing markets by offering a new sort of product"
"Given their sales and business results they seem to have succeeded in delivering a series of successful disruptions."
"Apple only makes things that in it's words 'deserve to exist', that is things made to Apple's standards "

ROFL... Seriously Tony, do you actually read the stuff you write? You sound like a marketing exec touting the virtues of your company...

To think you spend your own time to post such "rah rah" pro company crap is almost funnier.
What light through yonder window breaks... It is Apple, her golden hair waving in the wind and her supple skin glistening with anticipation.
