“Apple has only ’60 days left to either come up with [an iWatch] or they will disappear,’ analyst Trip Chowdhry told CNBC last month. ‘It will become a zombie, if they don’t come up with an iWatch,'” Jason Snell writes for Macworld.
“It’s easy — so very easy — to point at Chowdhry and laugh, because what he says is stupid,” Snell writes. “But it’s worth thinking about why Chowdhry and people who make similar proclamations about Apple (and the tech industry as a whole) are so completely clueless.”
“People want to be entertained by dramatic new product announcements and financial types are obsessed with future growth. Perhaps we can finally start to understand why people like Trip Chowdhry say stupid things,” Snell writes. “A bored financial analyst setting a 60-day Apple Doom Countdown is like a little kid holding her breath until she gets what she wants.”
