yeah yeah so they are only at 3% of the US market - still thats a jump from 2.1% two quarters ago.

see this CNET article (http://news.com.com/2100-1003_3-5092123.html?tag=nefd_top)

Apple has been at 3% for a while now.

A 2.1 increase I don't think so--what were they at 0.9% before :rolleyes:

Bob Muglia has quite a sneer in that picture.

Apple needs to copy what Dell and HP are doing right - marketing, supply chain management, manufacturing efficiency, and strategies for strong growth.

What do you think Steve Jobs and company have been doing ever since he came back to Apple? Playing pocket pool? :mad:

Multiple OS releases, more regular OS releases, lower of computer prices, increasing features, etc

I haven't seen the actual figures but they were quoting 3.48 percent prior to this.

Of course, the rest of the computer world has been moving at a brisker pace, according to the article.

Yes, Apple has been successful in the areas you mentioned, but needs work in the areas I mentioned.

apple marketing vs dell marketing
RATIOS:

1 apple ad = 10 dell ads

Apple: why are we not growing when we have kickass products?
Me: <sarcasm>I wonder why too </sarcasm>
