Why doesn't Apple rule the world? Or at least the home desktop
I'm traveling this week; one of my friends works for Apple. So naturally I'm getting an earful of propaganda. I also got a very slick demo of a few very cool things in in Apple OS 10 and the Leopard update to OS 10.
Against my better judgement, I started watching Steve Job's keynote from Macworld last week. Naturally, I appreciate watching a good and engaging speaker. Jobs is both. He is no Dick Hardt, but he is good. But the demos were slick, the iPhone is darned slick, the new iTunes movie rental stuff is very cool, AND I'm ready to buy an Apple TV box when I get home.
So, why does Apple not rule home desktop? I haven't a clue. Other than to venture a guess that many users want to use at home what they use at work. Apple, nice job on the products. When ActiveSync for the iPhone ships, I'm gonna be all over it! Even if it means, gulp, switching to AT&T.
