Consumers vote with purchases & companies react. That is normal evolution.
We already have a hint with Cook talking about a locally built Mac with more locally sourced components.   Robotics and "Design for Manufacturing" has advanced to a stage with the compact highly integrated electronics (Haswell has power management, cache, CPU & video on one die) to where the size of basic high performance "computer" mother boards are indeed tiny.  Look at the Mac Mini.  Look at the actual space for the main board in your Mac Book Pro (only takes...
If people want an emotional experience why do they sit in front of TVs with 5-6 commercials every break?
Well, MS didn't want to set up a bad situation, so they shipped their only pickup truck load of Surfaces to the Redmond campus and ...
Indeed Samsung would have been billions and billions of dollars ahead with a larger market lead had it licensed Apple on the terms discussed in their legal tussle.
The future will be owned by products that are often complex, but simple to understand and use. Jobs recognized it as a large number of leading designers, not the least of which is Ives.

[QUOTE=sunspot42;2069375]Those of us old enough to have been around for the dawn of the "home computer" market during the late '70s thru the mid '80s have seen this exact dynamic play out once before. What's happening to Android is nothing new. Your thoughts are mine in different words. A race to the bottom is a death spiral.
