Yes…but it is a lion

I heard a great quote today by Peter Sagal of NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! while he was trash talking with Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal.

You know what they said to the lion? They said, “Oh the lion only has one cub at once, while us lesser animals have litters.” The lion replies, “Yes…but it is a lion.”

I thought how could I compare this to the tech world? And this is what I came up with.

The innovators say, “Apple creates only one new product each year, while us regular people release millions.”  The people say, “Yes…but it is an Apple.”

Just a thought. I’m not a fanboy of Apple or really much of a fan at all, but I am respectful of their clout and their attention to detail. And a big check goes into the blog-a-day box.
