Apple says people do care which platform they use
posted by Alan F. / May 30, 2013, 10:10 PM
Leka received a memo from Apple Worldwide Developer Relations. The memo said that "the tone of your release and your product positioning is at odds with not just our primary marketing messaging, but the entire reason Apple exists." One can get the image of an angry Tim Cook stomping his foot with his arms crossed saying "But they do care...they do care...they do care". Actually, we don't really know how high up the Apple chain of command this went, so it is possible that the CEO did not have an inkling about the letter.
Yes, Apple is known for micro managing every little thing, but perhaps criticizing a press release for an app might be taking things a little too far.

Ok....I feel the say way. Ppl do care....look at how long WebOS, Palm had passionate users before most finally gave up a few years ago. Look at the many that gave up on BB and Win Mo and went to Android and iOS...and arent looking back. Look at the current users of WP and BB now that are happy...they dont care about market share, popularity. They just want what they want. But why get upset about this? If ppl at Apple really were upset......I dont know what to say.... Even tho I dont think Google or MS said the same thing....isnt that the idea behind Google Docs, Sky Drive, or Drop Box, etc?

When it comes to the big picture, most don't care. Most, just want stuff to work and just listen to their geeky friends, that hang out on tech sites, to tell them what to buy.

I am sorry, what's the big deal? As if iOS and Android and Windows don't have skydrive, sugarsync, box, dropbox and a zillion other services from which you can access your files anywhere regardless of platform. This is 2013, not 2003..
