    Q: [Apple founder Steve] Jobs's thing was the Mac, and [former president John] Sculley's thing was the Newton. What is Gil Amelio's thing going to be?
    A: I don't know. I'm not sure there is going to be one. In fact, what I'd rather have is not have a favorite child, but I'd rather find a way to integrate them together. What I think we haven't done well enough, and where I think we've missed a heck of an opportunity, is in taking the various technologies we have and blending them together to make a total solution. Newton ought to play seamlessly with the Mac. It doesn't today, but it ought to in the future. That I think is the missed bet, and so my wagon that I'm riding, if you will, is to try and put these things together so that they integrate better.
