Is Apple’s quality slipping? | TUAW

Over the weekend, amidst the noise of CES news seeping from Vegas, founding Tumblr CTO and Overcast developer Marco Arment voiced a concern I have been stressing over for some time. Titled “Apple has lost the functional high ground,” it cuts straight to the heart of the matter: Apple’s longtime brand promise of “it just works” applies to fewer and fewer products the company makes.

Marco, being a developer, is largely remarking on software. Apple’s hardware only seems to improve generation over generation (although I have spoken to a frighteningly large number of people who have had to battle Apple in order to get products fixed). Apple’s software, on the other hand, appears to have slipped off the cracker.

Se aveste dubbi, aprite iTunes.
