Apple has too much stage presence now. They should only have Cook, Ive, and Schiller say anything on stage and by all means get rid of Cue (or keep him off stage). Everyone seems to want the spotlight, which is hurting their exclusive image.
As far as device innovation, you could be right, it’s all a matter of preference. The Apple phone is still so nice to look at. It gives the feeling of “use me and never stop” and Androids are designed like “I can do what you want, now don’t let others see you using me.” Still, Apple has the lead on software fluidity. Android still feels clunky and crashes much more frequently, but they’re getting better.
