    Sweet! Along with the rumored mac adverts - Apple could really push the boat out here...

    Apple has a lot of things going for it right now, at least regarding the consumer market:

    • The iPod is as hot as the sun, drawing people to the Apple brand
    • Tiger has lots of cool new eye-catching features to show off
    • Mac mini is a low cost entry for PC users
    • new iMac G5 update is schweeeet!
    • Longhorn is 18 months away maybe
    • PC Consumers are getting tired of dealing with virii, malware, pop-ups, etc.

    All they need to do to tap this rich market is promote the Mac (and get their laptop's competitive again). They could even get to 10% share by the time Longhorn releases, and that would be just grand for software development and hardware costs.
