I think this skit typifies the standard impression of Apple, which is rapid innovation and implementation. Madonna said something to the same effect to Steve Jobs in her interview with him during an ichat video demonstration.
I don't believe that apple is moving too fast with innovation, but do you think that this impression the rest of the US has could be damaging to Apple? People might eventually get to the point where they are afraid to get a new iPod, b/c next month another one will be out that is that much better.
I compare this effect to the megahertz war about 4 years ago. People held off on computer purchases because something newer and better would be out in a couple months.
I mean, this will always be the issue with technology, at least I hope, but I think there is an equilibrium that must be found.

There still is a war going on with the fastest PC. That's what atlest the gammer world sees it as. It is true about the iPod. I've seen like Circut City and CompUSA sell a iPod for like so much then a week later the new iPod comes out and sell it for almost the same price and drop the price of the old one or stop selling the old one all together. All I can say is all you really need is 1GB of space. Think about it, why would any one want 4GBs of music or more? I have about 3GB os MP3s on my PC but it's more then just my music, it's the family's music and also about 1GB of it is from my old band that we cheaply recorded and never shrunk it down so each file is like 70MB, but not counting my old band recordings and only my share of music I have 673MBs of music.
