I do not want Microsoft to go away. Humiliated and made into Apple's bitch, of course. But MS and Apple are yin and yang. Their competition is what gave us iMac, iPod, iPhone, OS X. An Apple monopoly would be boring and futile.
I predict Apple's investment in fuel cells is a signifier of future source of power for upcoming products. I remember reading in the past about their looking into fuel cell and solar powered mobile devices.
