To be fair, he's making solid points. Apple is horrible at things that involve the internet.

Other than the words used , and zdnet having the courage to publish it, there's nothing new in this article. At least to those who know Apple well. No company is perfect in all areas. The only unique aspect when it comes to Apple, is they actually believe they're experts in all fields & market themselves as such.

Unlike Crow who was just spouting "pie in the sky" nonsense about Apple hitting it's peak. This guy is brining relevant information imo.

The more in-tune know that Apple struggles on web stuff beyond Web Kit but he brings up some good points in this article.

Now it remains to be seen how Apple can close the gap. It may take a few stud hires and a bit of capEx spending beyond just building a data-center to get the ship sailing smoothly.
