Ryan Block on the jaded, cynical portion of the tech press that can’t see beyond its own nose:
So now you’re starting to see why it’s almost impossible for there to be a whole lot of novelty. Is it any wonder why the next best selling device is such a snore when you’re a technology critic looking at your 400th cellphone this year?
It’s exactly in this way that mainstream consumers see things in ways that technology enthusiasts often don’t, or can’t.
Expecting every single product to be utterly exciting is bullshit. Ask: it a great product?
Zoom out. Stop staring at our beautifully laid out product spec pages for a second. Is it a great product?
