Ok, let me diagram this out for you.

The assertion is that Apple was successful with the iPod, therefore Apple will be successful with the iPhone.
Wrong. No such assertion has been made.

Quote:
The counter argument being that Apple having one successful line of products (iPod) does not automatically guarantee all Apple products are successful, as evidenced by the Quicktake, Pippen, Newton, AppleTV, and ROKR.

Thus, the logic of your assertion is shown to be invalid.
Thus, you're full of shite.

nothing worth quoting

God I hate talking about anything made by Apple for exactly this reason. All the weirdos who think debate is what you put on the end of defishing line come out to play!
To this point, all I can say is that it is your volumous litany of bottom-dwelling muckraking that is the causative basis for the response you receive. That's sorta how the science of language works. Apple is just the easy target for you. It could be a device from Company X and it wouldn't matter to me. That's liberating.

I understand clearly that words have meaning. Yours and mine. Only I can take ownership of mine. You keep sprinting from yours. Wonder why that is? HHhhmmm ...

Your hypocrisy knows no limits, does it? To you, Apple is both a Flop and a Flop. But, of course, in your language, they have differing meanings.

At one point you pretended you had a lot of cogent arguments, but didn't really feel you needed to share them with us, because they were trumped by your ad hominem attacks on my motivation.

The funny thing is, even if Steve Jobs raped my 8-month-old puppy with a gang of Apple engineers when i was 12, that doesn't actually make my arguments any less valid. The argument is valid, or it isn't, no matter who poses it, or what their motivation. So far, all you have done is impugn my motivation, my character, my knowledge, my intellect, and misunderstand/misrepresent/misinterpret what I am saying.
Saying that the original iPod was a FLOP pretty much takes away any credibility you have. Find me one person who would agree with such an idiotic statement.

There are 1.086 billion Catholics in the world, that doesn't scientifically prove that the Pope is infallible. A belief being popular, and belief being true are not the same thing.

Well, I guess when you have crazy monkeys constantly flinging their feces at you, you have to practice a little avoidance.
