It’s time for our annual look back on Apple’s performance during
the past year, as seen through the eyes of writers, editors,
developers, podcasters, and other people who spend an awful lot of
time thinking about Apple.
This is the fifth year that I’ve presented this survey to a
hand-selected group. They were prompted with 12 different
Apple-related subjects, and asked to rate them on a scale from 1
to 5 and optionally provide text commentary per category. I
received 65 replies, with the average results as shown below.
Compiling these report cards is a mountain of work, and I am deeply thankful to Snell for doing it each year. The cumulative grades feel just about spot-on to me. As I did last year, I’ll publish my own full report card later today.
