When I worked as an Apple repair tech, two out of every three machines off the line would fail and would require immediate refurbishing.

Bullshit. That kind of failure rate would have put them out of business.

I can almost guarantee you that Apple does jack shit for actual product testing

As it happens, I worked in Apple's Hardware Test Engineering group shortly after the iPad shipped, and I know first-hand that you're full of shit.

Apple are merging OS X into IOS, albeit very slowly.

Nope. I've been there, and nobody at Apple has any such intention. Features will get passed back and forth between them, but they're very aware of the reasons that Tablet PCs failed, and they're not going to copy MS's mistakes.
