Apple's hubris will kill them eventually, as it has previously. You can just hear Jobs say something like: "What we have with the Mac OS is just soooooooooooo superior to a PC clone running Windows 3.1 that we will never lose market share. We will own the desktop space forever". Right? Wrong.Just think, if apple wasn't so stubborn and arrogant, they would be bigger than MS and Intel by now...
Haven't they admitted this already with the iPhone5? Going from a 3.5" 4:3 screen (which Job's repeatedly claimed to be the "perfect" size) to a 4" 16:9 screen already clearly acknowledges they must now think Steve and Apple's engineers had got it wrong all along (I can say that with certainty, given that the technology to make a bigger screen was available when the iPhone 1 was released).Doing that is admitting that the size of their current models is not really the sweet spot of sizes that they have researched, engineered, and tested well.
Not if Google Maps DLs are anything to go by!I really never understood why Apple decided to drop the ball on their mapping app the way they did. Is it all fixed now (I've not been following it)?
Yeah he obviously missed the Nasdaq Tech Bubble (or has a very shoert memory) when Yahoo! had a stock value of $275. If Apple is forced to lower their profit margins to the market average, the PE sky rockets, and the stock price collapses. It certainly wouldn't be the first time.I always laughed at market cap being used to determine the size of a company. With it being able to change drastically over night.
