I think the eventual point is that we are so busy with Apple's gadgets that we don't have the time to consider whether the world is going the way we want.
If so, again that's a cheap shot at Apple, who's hardly the main driver or benefactor of modern society's obsession with vacuous and constant entertainment over substance.
Apple didn't kill the revolution (if the revolution has indeed been killed). Society killed the revolution. We're heading for a Brave New World type society of sated indifference, and most people seem to be ok with that (even though a few vigorously disagree). That's hardly something to lay at Apple's feet.
