Apple’s Responsibility

A new site has sprung up in the wake of Apple’s decision to forgo the Macworld Conference and Expo after 2009. It is called Silent Keynote and asks all keynote attendees to not clap, cheer or wistle during the keynote to protest Apple’s withdrawal from the event on the grounds that this decision shows that they don’t care about the Apple community.

Apple’s responsibility to the community is not to hang out with friends one week a year. Their responsibility is to produce terrific products for their community to use and tools for developers to innovate on those products 52 weeks a year.
