    Daniel Eran Dilger becomes more and more verbose and overly theoretical in his attempts to defend the declining might of Apple. Simple arguments don't cut anymore as it is easier to find holes in 'em.
    In my view, the power of Apple came from its perennial ability to PUSH (the Principle of Unity of Hardware & Software). Apple did it for one and only purpose - to make devices that are easiest to use. This is what made Apple great under Steve Jobs leadership.

    Not anymore. Under Tim Cook, Apple still PUSHes... but in a wrong direction. Its devices are not any more the easiest to use: try interacting with or typing on a narrow iPhone screen, rely on unreliable iCloud, or be nearly forced to use Apple Maps.

    Paradoxically, as Tim Cook more and more focuses on profits and shareholders instead of making the easiest to use devices, Apple profit growth start to slow down and shareholders eventually lose.

    i'm amazed at all the pundits and forum people who fail to grasp that all the Apple hardware and software today were mostly decided and initially developed while Jobs was still very much in charge and Forstall controlled iOS. Cook just oversaw their completion and launch. it takes years to develop major products, guys. blaming or crediting Cook for them is just silly.

    this is the year when we will see the actual first new products of the Cook/Ivie era, starting with the overhaul of iOS7 that will be unveiled at WWDC. and then maybe that iWatch ...

    Android is eating Apple and other OSs, that's the reality, Google has not interest in the Android devices being expensive, they just want it to be broad, so it has as many users as they can, Google is an Advertise company!! People that says iOS is better than Android don't really know the Android OS, other say is boring, What?, Boring is iOS that is almost static for almost a decade. And keep in mind that Android will also eat alive Windows and Mac OS X since it can EASILY be a Desktop full feature OS. Also Android is way more CPU independent, it's built on JAVA, and while most mac users think Java is bad and ugly, mostly because Apple don't want it do be other way around on MAC OS X, java makes programs easily ported to Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Android, and so on, that will make App Store wayyy less profit.

    Considering iOS is barely 6 years old and not a decade proves you're an idiot.

    Android on a PC is the funniest thing I've ever heard.

    Nope.

    No, we're just not idiots.

    1. Shut up.


    2. Holy frick, the desktop paradigm has been around for 30 years. THAT MUST BE REALLY BORING, HUH? Idiot troll.






    And keep in mind that Android will also eat alive Windows and Mac OS X since it can EASILY be a Desktop full feature OS.



     


    1. Abject nonsense.


    2. No, it can't. That's just idiotic.


    3. If so, why isn't it? Why did Google make Chrome OS instead of just making a laptop with Android? You're OBVIOUSLY LYING.






    Also Android is way more CPU independent…



     


    *snort*






    …it's built on JAVA…



     


    *guffaw*


     




    …java makes programs easily ported to Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Android, and so on…
