Waqas,

Fair enough statement to make.

Fans live and Die by the Apple Brand today.

I doubt there is much that sceptics like you and me say that can convince them to change their behavior today.

Like this great and truly awesome Video from the Comedian Jimmy Kimmel-www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rdIWKytq_q4

Tech4people, no matter how many flaws critics point out, fans have their mind made up before the product arrives that they will buy it. Let's see if Apple is unable to protect such a flaw in the product that really hurts the sale. Till now it has been just criticism but no reduction in sales.

Waqas,

The More Important Question to ask is how much of this criticism/mocking is justified?

If there is anything I have personally learnt about Apple's Mis-steps over the Last few Years or so(Especially since Jobs passed away) is that Apple Deserves the Criticism.

The Latest news on iOS8 is that it has messed up Bluetooth Connectivity for all pre-existing Users(who had no choice but to upgrade their OS thanks to Apple).

Do Apple deserve a Break over these mis-steps?

I don't think so.

Hmm. Though Apple has given the opportunity to get itself criticized but don't you think competitors contribute to the defamatory game too ?

Waqas,

Its way worse than that.

Everyone(and I really mean Everyone) is making fun of Apple Online please see[www.informationweek.com/it-life/apple-iphone-6-bendgate-top-10-tweets/d/d-id/1316101]

This is a terrible-terrible faux paus for Apple even worse than the NSA Scandal which clearly proved that every single Iphone ships data home to the NSA.

Tech4people, truly these are bad times for Apple. One thing we never expected is the quality of Apple's products in question. It can deal with the situation of ios but iPhone 6 is now out in the market and there is no going back from the products already on shelf.

Waqas,

Not just about Basic Specifications but Quality of Products you produce also.

Just look at the Absolute Disaster that Apple has had with the Apple 6 Plus today-The Phone Bends in your Pockets,the Wi-Fi's Terrible,Battery Life Sucks and the latest iOS Update has messed things up for practically all Older users.

This tells you everywhere that Apple went wrong in the SupplyChain side.

Is it any wonder their stock is crashing today?

Tech4people, I think it is critically important these days for device manufacturers to first take a survey as to whether the product they are launching is adding something new or whether it is being better catered through some other technique. For e.g. a 7 inch tablet does nothing extra which a 5.5 inch smartphone does. Specifications are secondary.

Waqas,

Very,Very True.

I will readily say I am one such consumer.

I hate carrying around Multiple Devices with me when I am moving around .

Would rather have just one Robust Device which can do everything I want it to do effectively.

Anything less would not cut it(atleast for me personally).

Laurie,

To me personally it does'nt sound that far-fetched.

A lot of people Are ready to undergo these kind of Experiments on their Own Bodies today(in the name of Progress and Science).

I won't be surprised if Governments are already working with such Guinea Pigs today.

Its not entirely outside the Realm of Current Reality.
