I just bought a 5c for my daughter as a Christmas present. I like it a lot and I think it's a great phone. I wouldn't buy one for myself because the colors are too pastel. They really needed to have more masculine colors in the mix; at least a black one.
Apple has to diversify to break the Mac out of the niche that it's in. It only makes sense that Tim Cook would visit Valve personally, after so many Apple reps went there and nothing ever materialized from it. Cook isn't going to disappear, like so many before him did. Steve Jobs did not get gaming at all. He famously was against games being developed for the Mac at launch.

Plus, consider that part of the appeal of the iPad and iPhone is that Apple is building an ecosystem of iOS devices that all work together, and they drive sales for each other. That's a helluva good place to be, and Amazon is green with envy.
Thank Jean Louis Gasse for Steve Jobs's return to Apple. Apple was looking at both NeXT and BeOS. Gil Amelio and the Apple board thought that they could pick up BeOS on the cheap, and made them an offer. In their negotiations with Be, Gasse pushed the price higher. Gasse wanted $200 million, and Apple believed that BeOS was only worth $125 million. So an exasperated Apple punted Be and made an offer of $429 million to NeXT, instead, which they believed to be the more...
