Early Adopters

I just had a thought as to why Apple has continued to grow and out-shine Windows in the new product market as well as OS X functionality and usability.

Early adoption by a generally creative and smart user base.

This is a growing and formulating idea, but my thinking is, that since Apple has such a large and loyal base of users — who by their newest products with the full knowledge that it will still be full of kinks and bugs and things that will need working out — that Apple garnishes feedback and funding from that it uses to improve and produce the next generation of said product.

Any thoughts?

I would have to agree to disagree. The user you are refering to probaly have none to little exposer to the comversation you are having in regard to the product.

What i ment was…. That the non ambiguious reference in your comment. Hardley cover enough in formation for someone who is not used to that type of program…. So i thought your question was something i would agree to disagree with. not lost.

I was referencing the “new product market” in it’s general sense, not in reference to a specific “new product.” I am mainly thinking of the continual update and creation of new individual products — such as the iPod, iTunes music player, Powerbook, iMacs, OS X, etc.

This same thought has crossed my mind, but if it’s true, I hope it’s not something they’re _really_ relying on. I used to put myself in that early adopter category, but my horrendous (and on-goingly bad) experience with the MacBook Pro has taught me my lesson. I will stay away from first revs if at all possible. I’m ok with some bugs and I don’t expect computers to be perfect, but this one has tested my patience (and I’m generally a very patient / apple-apologetic person).

Interesting that you have had problems with your MBP. My dad bought one a few months back and he hasn’t encountered any problems yet. Are you having bloated battery issues?

And on a side note, I plan to be the sucker who tests out the iPhone for everyone.
