I don't understand...this author harangues at Apple but in the closing paragraphs says that Apple is doing what it should to be Apple.

Apple is the exception that proves the rule.

You can always count on Prof. Christensen for completely misinformed quotes on Apple and, apparantly, the entire computing industry if he thinks people are satisfied with Windows and the reason is CPU performance.

weird, sam is right. he pashes apple for not trying new things then says apple is doing better because they are sticking to the old methods?

Perhaps apple is making a move that is a mixture of both worlds.

If they standardize their hardware to help find the low cost world of PC's, perhaps their software will allow them to continue to sell their equal hardware with a higher price tag.

I think what he is saying is there is that he is pessimistic about Apple.

Apple is going to do great short term. As long as it innovates its value will rise.

However, as long as Apple stays proprietary it will never be dominant.

What he says is absolutely correct. The only way to be optimistic about Apple's long term prospects is to believe they can continue to create new products and market segments that everyone must have. Can anyone rationally believe this?

Having said that. I think that Apple has a good 12-25 months left just with what they have in their pipeline.

But I'm not willing to bet on Apple 5-6 years down the road (but I'm not willing to bet on any company that far away).

I just wonder if Jobs will give in a license something to do with Apple. The HP deal didn't work out. I think companies just can't work with Jobs...except Disney and I wish Dizz would buy Pixar.

I wonder how much input Jobs has with Pixar's actual production and output.

Disney ruins everything they touch. Keep them the heck away from Pixar!

Apple won't fail until it starts to copy Winblows rather than the other way around.

"The sky is falling, the sky is...". Doesn't that get a bit old after so many years.



Of course I have a backup, don't you?
