I certainly understand Apple's broadening product line and the importance that the iPod has had in Apple's recent strength, but I am concerned about the attendant "my way or the highway" attitude that this has had on Apple and the fallout for the Mac. In suggesting to several friends and relatives that they consider the Mac (and it would be perfect for their computing expertise) a major stumbling block has been the inability of the Mac to live and play well with video on the web. For worse or worse, MS has cornered the current market with their DRM strategy. Go to Vongo or Netflix with a Mac and one is greeted immediately with a warning stating that your operating system is incompatible, get XP or Vista. Same with TNT.tv. With Amazon's Unbox it takes a bit more mousing to find out you need XP or Vista. Now if Apple intends to supply all of the same content via iTunes, fine and dandy. But lately, they appear to be content to piss off any media suppliers that want some control over the cost and packaging of their content. That doesn't bode well for increasing availability of media from Apple. Other issues that could easily be fixed remain impediments. Intuit won't make Mac products feature equivalent to Windows products or even file equivalent so a small 3 person office based on QuickBooks can't switch easily. Even Apple won't make a Keynote player for Windows so that we can show Keynote presentations at conferences... we still have to convert them to PowerPoint losing much of the Keynote advantage. It wouldn't take much of Apple's cash pile to address some of these issues. Of course BootCamp, Fusion and Parallels solve these problems, but if one is going to have to live with Windows, one can do it for a lot less money on someone else's hardware... and for the person seeking the Mac for simplicity, this just adds more complexity than they were trying to avoid. Does Apple not see these as significant issues, or do they just not care so long as they can sell as many Macs as they produce?
