Apple hardware priced so high that no one wants to buy it? It's 1983 all over again

As much as I like to diss Apple...

I'm not sure what the point of this article was.

Back then, the Lisa was built using absolute cutting edge technology and attempted to introduce some new concepts into the consumer market - the mouse, the GUI, virtual memory, hard-drive storage, etc.

These days, Apple is letting their "Mac" technology stagnate, and while their iPhone hardware is still arguably cutting edge, the technological improvements are incremental/evolutionary, not revolutionary.

So yeah: apples and pears, chalk and cheese.
