I'm not trying to "rag" on you ... honestly, Im not ..... but for the life of me, I still don't understand why a lot of people ... not just you .... insist on saying that Apple "needs competition to keep innovating and improving".
Apple's biggest pressure to succeed comes from .... Apple itself. Say it with me ... Apple's biggest pressure to succeed comes from .... Apple itself!
Did the lack of decent competition stop Apple from overhauling the MP3/ music industry? Hell no!
Did the lack of decent competition stop Apple from overhauling the cellphone industry? Again, hell no!
Did the lack of decent competition stop Apple from overhauling the tablet industry? You got it ... hell no!
Steve has said many, many times that the thing that drives Apple is the desire to to make the best products that they can .... not the cheapest , but the best
.... and it just so happens that to the shopper that considers the "whole picture," Apple usually represents the best value as well.
Lastly, just ask yourself .... Has all that competition
driven Apples competitors to make the best products possible ? Judging from this latest effort from Acer ... I'd say the answer is a very resounding ...NO!
Remember please, .... the competition doesn't drive Apple .... Apple drives Apple. (rant over)
