Apple’s New IPhone 8 Looks Like A Dud

Date: Monday, September 25, 2017 10:56 AM EST

In 2003, I bought my very first Apple product: an Apple iPod.

I loved it because it made listening to music easy.

With two clicks, I could find the exact song I wanted to hear. It was perfect for trips or for running, because I could make playlists of my songs and fit my whole music collection on just one device.

Looking back, it was the first time I’d owned something that I loved to use.

So it comes as no surprise that I bought an iMac computer, and then upgraded my iPod and my iMac when new models came out.

After that came the iPhone, and then a series of iPads and iMac computers.

When I wanted any computer product, I bought an Apple.

Over the past 14 years, I estimate that I’ve spent about $35,000 on Apple products. And I never bought another company’s computer product during that time.

Until now.

As of this year, I’m no longer buying Apple products.

That’s because I have a knack for spotting new product trends that are going to explode higher before anyone else, just like the iPod.

Equally, I have a knack for getting off trends before a big decline. And I believe Apple is about to go into a period of heavy decline. Here’s why…

A Feel-Good Experience

You see, Apple’s lost the thing that got me to buy my iPod 14 years ago.

It’s the delight of having something that works so well, you love using it.

It’s the feeling of wishing that everything you owned worked in the same way.

It’s this feeling that made me go buy more Apple products…

Because they gave you an experience that no other company’s did. That experience made you feel good, so you wanted more and more of it.

However, since Steve Jobs’ tragic death in 2011, Apple’s lost the ability to deliver this experience.

My most recent Apple computer is such a disappointment that I’ve committed to buying a Google Chromebook.

Apple’s iPads are so poorly rated compared to Microsoft’s Surface or Google’s Pixel C that I refuse to buy another one.
