What's better? 100 pounds of feces or 1 pound of pure gold? Which would you rather have?
The truth is is that the PC industry as a whole is collapsing and those that are showing higher market share this year will drop next year after the mass market is complete in fill up. The repeat customers will be those that need to replace systems that have stopped working. Apple has a base of customers that are willing to buy at a premium price and continue to upgrade on a consistent basis.

The market will look at Apple's next earnings announcement the same way. It's all about whether you miss, meet or beat earnings expectations.

With Mansfield taking on the Car and Riccio taking on the microprocessors, I believe Apple will have a competitive-to-superior car entry. It just might be time for Musk to start planning his exit strategy (I just had to have a little dig at the man for claiming Apple or any company are too late to the car manufacturing industry). Go, Apple!
The single most influential improvement they could make with the 2nd generation model would be to dramatically improve the battery life. In my conversations with people who would have considered buying the 1st gen model, that was always the main reason they chose not to. A lot of people just can't get over the fact that there were digital watches 40 years ago that could go two years before needing a new battery. Smart watch or not, 2 days on a charge feels like a major step back.

So basically they're starting all over again.
Anyone who believes an Apple car will see the light of day before 2021, if ever, is kidding themselves.
And by then the big auto makers will have an insurmountable lead.
