Apple: Dragged Kicking and Screaming Into Business Computing? | HaveMacWillBlog (aka Robin Bloor’s Blog)

Robin Blor writes in his blog about Apple: Dragged Kicking and Screaming Into Business Computing? | HaveMacWillBlog (aka Robin Bloor’s Blog): "Taking a broad perspective, perhaps the most important current focus for Apple is to gain firmer control of the home entertainment market. Apple may have stolen the music market with the iPod, but the video market is going to be a much rougher competition. And in harmony with that, Apple is also stalking the telco world, stitching new iPhone deals with wireless carriers. Indeed, according to reports, Apple has tripled the market for the iPhone with the recent deals it has made - making the world’s best known phone available to a subscriber base of over 450 million people. Apple doesn’t need to be distracted.

"It sounds very sober, doesn’t it? But actually it’s not a very sober way to look at things," Robin continues.

Apple has been on my mind since the early 1980's but I'm a PC-user now. We don't have Apple Stores in Finland and the whole Apple thing isn't so well developed in Europe. It would be nice to see a stronger Apple drive on the old continent.

"At the weekend I went into an Apple Store to buy a cable and came out with both a cable and an Apple Time Capsule in my hands. My fault entirely, I guess. However I was waylaid by one of Apple’s shop assistants (or as Apple calls them, Personal Shopping Specialists), whose name was Anna. In casual conversation I discovered that she had been a coder (in C and C++) - and yet she hadn’t graduated yet to the Apple Genius Bar. She confessed to being a geek," Robin Bloor conlcudes in his blog Have Mac will Blog.
