- Our customers are worn out, and tired of upgrading every year.
- Be careful of apps. Some free apps charge money for "in app" purchases. Beware.
- We're getting in the way of dinner, church services, and romance.
The report says Apple gets in the way of human contact because many people check their iPhones during dinner and immediately after intimacy. The report says iPhones have replaced the old cigarette on the nightstand.
And perhaps the biggest thing Apple won't tell you:
- You'll spend more money if you have an iPad.
SmartMoney says a shiny iPad with instant access to iTunes and Amazon means its so easy to purchase things like movies and music or clothing and shoes.
While there are not any scientific studies to support its claim, SmartMoney says the anecdotal evidence suggests that iPad owners make more impulse purchases.
Of course, it really doesn't matter what the critics say about Apple, of if other smartphones do more.
Apple still has cachet and coolness that other companies just dream about.
