A COMPUTER company actually starts a fashion trend in coloring their computers certain colors that gets copied in all kinds of products that aren't even computer related. If you really stop and think about that, it's, well, extraordinary!
Now EVERYTHING's looking like an iMac or "Space Clam" (my pet word for the old iBook) Well, at least everything is COLORED like them.
What's Apple to do? What they've always done...
Ice, Snow, whatever you call it, it's simple, beautiful, and goes with anything.
OK, Fashion Monsters...time to play "catch up" with Apple again...once, mearly innovators in computer technology, now (dare I say it?) actual trend setters.
,,,then i ask you this, "why didn't apple inc capitalize on this?"
in 1996 when they almost bit the dust, the had 6 billion in cash reserves and now in 2002, i hear the number is at 4 billion...now what is wrong with that picture?
did the flop of the quicksilver, the cube, the dalmation and flower poer imacs, and the expensive development of os x really cost apple that much?
if it were dell or microsoft, i know they would have made their company's stock triple and market capitalization increase with such trend setting
i think apple should have stayed with bondi blue and the colors and worked it a little more and not gone to the dalmation and flower power which i think they did because they wanted to set another trend
why does apple inc always drop the ball when the momentum is on their side?
