 "This nonsense belongs with some of the other books I've read about Apple. It fails to capture Apple, Steve, or anyone else in the company." -- Tim Cook talking about Haunted Empire
Well I guess you wouldn't have taken Steve Jobs seriously, because he used to say things like "Microsoft has no taste." Many of the smartest people in history were ruthless with their critics. You should take writers seriously if there is evidence that they are doing their research and offering considered opinions. That is the standard by which to judge. Are they working things out or just making them up? Whether or not they are a robot with their critics is a minor point.
 Could be. I think they just invested so much in Android to prevent Apple becoming a monopoly in mobile, which they saw as a threat to their services. But since that hasn't happened, maybe Android has served it's purpose for them? Is that what the "We'll see," is - watching Apple's market share to see if it's stabilised? Long term I don't think they want to be an OS company, but an Internet services company.
Well, if you are not a writer (or English professor, book reviewer, or at least a school teacher) then by definition your critique of his writing was an amateur one, so why does it deserve a professional reply? 
Where's your website of writing so we can all criticise it and see how good you feel?
Australia will be next on the chopping block. Our dollar was worth $US 0.91 three months ago and now it's only worth $US 0.81.
The article mentions the possibility of future ARM Macs. But do we think Microsoft might release an ARM version of Windows 10 desktop? I know Surface RT failed (as the article mentions) but I am talking about the desktop version of Windows. Imagine if all those millions of office workers which are Intel's bread and butter got cheap little ARM boxes on their desks running Windows 10.
I have LEDs in every room now too, but I didn't do it for energy saving reasons! My house has terrible wiring and normal bulbs (and CFLs) typically blow in about 6 weeks, but LEDs seem to last forever, so that was a happy discovery.
The lightbulbs will probably take off at some point. I can imagine a future where people think it's strange that we used to have to turn lights on and off by hand when entering/leaving a room. They will make an environmental argument that it will save electricity.
I think they should enhance the music videos section of iTunes, out YouTube YouTube. Make the videos all HD and ad-supported, and redo the interface.
