An interesting article at xbit labs.

Certainly, Apple is a trend setter.  Just look to the impact they have had on the smart phone market in such a short time.  But they are a trend setter in the same way that Mercedes or BMW are trend setters. Not really designed or marketed for the common folk…mostly aimed at the elite of the planet with a trickle down of second hand stuff for regular folk.
