You are forgetting all the interesting stuff that Apple released in 2012. It was the busiest year to date.
All new iPhone, iPads, iPods, iMacs and MacBook Pros with Retina Displays and updates to Apple TV, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. There was also a new version of iOS and OS X as well as Apple Maps.
I don’t think Apple could do anything at all to please bashers like yourself.
