Marketwatch Post Shows Wall Street And Mainstream Media Does Get Apple's Mobile Vision

There has been a mot of attacks on Wall Street from the 2008 financial meltdown to a series of idiotic reports over the years. And mainstream media is has a lot of blame to go around.

And this Marketwatch about the iPhone only served to reinforce that view. It only served to my own opinion that the media an Wall Street is failing to take responsibility for its ignorance and erosion of standards.

The post is about how the iPhone can regain it swagger. Really? The 13 month old iPhone 4 still has an impressive adoption rates and continues to outsell individual competitors needs to regain its swagger? How ridiculous!

What's more idiotic is the suggestions offered by the writer. First, he brought up Steve Jobs. WTF!?

Then it said that Apple needs a new ad campaign. I'll give him that. I happen to think it works and since this is a subjective matter, he is entitled to his own opinion.

Then it brought up suggestions that Apple improve download speed and phone functionality by forcing carriers to bend to its demands. Seriously. I wonder if the writer met with a challenge to generate clicks and found writing something about the iPhone could probably so that.

The post also mentioned the need for a better camera. Okay. How? What features? No suggestion was offered. It is as if he read all the iPhone rumors out there and simple put this point in based on the rumors that the next iPhone could sport a better resolution camera.

Then he comes to the point about the battery life. Given my issues about today's mobile devices and battery life, you would think that I would agree with him. Yes but the flippant way he bought it up made it seem as the iPhone has the worst battery life in the market, when in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

These idiots will be the death of our society. How can someone who so wisely decided on the iPhone as his mobile device be so...sigh.
