Not when the facts and research support mine - I tend to discard the rest as irrelevant, especially when no facts support them.
Let me spell it out in A-B-C fasion:
Apple doesn’t cater to a vocal minority. Say what you will aobut the company, they are MASTERS at marketing, which, by definition, means that they know their customer base. intimately. in the DAP market, their customer base is the largest in the world. This is not subject to discussion. it’s simply a fact. This company, having the largest customer base in this market, made a business decision to implement a feature. Said feature was not limited to one model but encompassed several across their lineup. That meant, in very simple terms, that it was profitable for them to develope this feature which meant that A LOT of people either asked for it, knew what it was or would just simply use it.
What part of this oh-so-simple progression escapes you?
Given these facts, I trust the other gentle readers of this thread will now understand why I put little faith in otherconjecture or prognostications.
