I agree...I stopped buying their stuff shortly after the Performa fiasco...with me, it was the load of Vx's that we purchased that were replaced several months later with the Centris...twice the power, twice the RAM and twice the hard drive for just a little over half the price of the Vx's we purchased...since then, I have refused to purchase another Apple branded device (luckily, I already had my Newton by then, and the Newton I purchased later on had the Newton logo instead of an Apple logo)

So stop buying their stuff: that's the most direct way to hold them to account.
And really if you had such a problem with the Performa and the eMate that you're angry after more than 15 years why on earth would you still buy their stuff?
