Interesting, but merely a rehash.

The article is an interesting read, but I found no new information in it, just a rehash of existing rumors. My favorite part was the discussion of Apple's huge mindshare (as opposed to market share). I am pleased to hear that Apple has so much influence on the computer industry, despite having such a small market share. As always, be prepared for at least one surprise at the keynote tomorrow.

Apple may innovate, but they also limit their customer base... The article just reiterates the fact that Apple leads the way and continues to deliver new and innovative products into the market. However it points out that they seem to never get past that point. It's similar to the effect of small startup companies. They have great ideas and deliver them, but the CEO's tend to drop the ball when it comes to exploiting the market. Often CEO's in some startups will be replaced with more experienced CEO's that know how to exploit the market. Apple tends to hold their product from full potential. Hopefully they'll come-out with something that's a little more open to drag people from that darkside. A perfect example was Steve Jobs commenting on how they didn't need to make the iPod or iTunes compatible with any other products. That bugs people because it limits their freedom. Clear signs that if given the opportunity Apple would become MS. Sounds ugly, but that's what I gather from what he was saying.
