I see what you've done there. You've taken the word "consumer" and inserted the word "sheep", inventing your own brand new word "consheepmer", in order to suggest that most people who buy things make their decisions based on the decisions of others, rather than carrying out their own in-depth research into all the options available. Well done, you should be proud of yourself.

Almost all of their potential customer base weren't even aware beforehand that there was an Apple product announcement due today.

It sucks, but not for the reasons you give.

RSS piped through Google Reader onto the 'Reeder' app is a very nice reading experience. It's a PITA that I now have to View Source, CTRL+F, "rss" on sites that don't explicitly advertise their own feed, but that's the browser manufacturers' fault for removing the native RSS functionality - why they all chose to do that, I'm still trying to fathom.
