A CNN Technology article tries to explain why Apple fans are so loyal to the brand despite a flurry of problems with the iPod and iPhone. Their reasoning: the iPod brought Apple into the mainstream along with an incredible cool factor that is so great, people will refuse to abandon the brand despite all the problems. They say had a company like Microsoft had similar problems, their users would have bailed already.
So what do you think guys? Agree or disagree?
I’d like to hear with Sharon and Sameer have to say about this. Sameer is dead-set on getting the iPhone but I’ve been hearing about lots of software glitches and problems with connectivity. Will he still go with the iPhone or will he turn to their competitor, Blackberry?
ps: On that article page, there’s a pic of the entrance to the Apple building in New York – check it out, it’s awesome! We saw it when we were there and couldn’t figure out if it was modern art or something practical. That is until we saw people ascending out of the floor!
