Believe me, I want them to succeed immensely, as I love the integrated ecosystem. 

Yup Jobs was the only one innovating. Jony was just a puppet. I remember all the new products Jobs created. He must have had one every year in his last tour as CEO. /s

I rather view Apple as a ship than a sportscar. Sports cars have a tendency to crash if driven too fast.

@ digitalclips, Thanks, always enjoy the view from Clearwater—I believe—as well.

To be dramatic about it, in these dark days of antiApple-ism, more thought is being given to what we are losing by not understanding, and the blatant undervaluing. I know it's got me thinking. Gruber is on the case, and he linked to a blog post yesterday on the essence of Apple's uniquness, which then leads to another great Asymco post, here:

I've only gotten into a few of the comments, but poke has great one up top.

Anyway, Apple is still the underdog, 'cause now they're really out to take it down.

Hah! I hadn't thought of the Titanic, but now you mention it . . . maybe sports car is a better image, even if unrealistic when it comes to the engine room.

Anyway, the Asymco link above is an exercise in smart positive thinking.

Edit: jungmark has a point there also. Maybe vessels and vehicles are the wrong metaphor class.

We need a way to mark user accounts that have done this so that people can see what nonsense they spew… A color would be great, but good luck getting something like that implemented… If signatures could be locked, a simple link to wherever they did it would work, but they… ah, wait… 

Wow, you're even more innovative than Apple is now.
