The only reason I got an iPod (after they'd been out about 8 years) was that they were more or less monopolising the demand for small hard drives. (I don't even use iTunes to load it up, because it sucks.) I will admit it's very good at doing its core task without fuss but beyond that, eh. I will say if the next-gen iPad has the same dpi as the new iPhone it's going to be a killer e-reader. (It probably already is, but I've got other priorities for my disposable income at the moment.)

But that is the one thing I do like about them is that they actually make the UI a priority because they know they're making consumer toys and so it's best to make it elegant and intuitive. It's taken years for the desktop Linux people to catch onto the idea that, well, it shouldn't be an afterthought, but neither is it easy to do, so they probably ought to be given some slack.

It's funny that Douglas Adams got brought up because he was a Mac freak and he'd love all this stuff, but he'd probably still take the piss out of it. :)
