Great piece by newbie Cal Worthington on voxApple about trends and Apple.
Is Apple a trendsetter? Or, is Apple a trend follower? For a month after Apple launches a new iPhone, a Mac, or iPad upgrades, the armchair quarterbacks of technology gadgetry hit the streets banging their drums and pointing out what most of us have known for a few decades.
Apple is not the trendsetter.
Apple does what Cal said. It corrects the trendsetters.
