iOS 4.2 Delay

I guess in a few months the 4.2 update for iOS will have felt like a blip in the radar.  But for iPad users this month, the holy grail of multi-tasking seems to be like the second coming of Jesus, failing to materialize.

Apple is currently at an all time high with 20% of market share of PC's in the US and definitely the "computer" consumer brand with the most mindshare.  But has Apple become too big for its boots.  Can Apple successfully adapt from its market niche to be the leader. The perfectionism of Steve Jobs might not be suited for the needs of the Mass Consumer that want things quickly and not necessarily perfectly.

In the meantime I am still waiting for 4.2 and am glad that it isn't released early and buggy like what Microsoft has done over the years, particularly with Windows Vista (Windows 7 should have been a free upgrade for Vista users).
