T.T. O’Brien with the basic comparison of Mac vs. iPhone.
If the iPhone is doomed after barely a decade as an icon, then why hasn’t the Mac died? After all, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs introduced the Mac back in 1984. We’re talking 35 years. The iPhone is only 12.
So many questions; so little time.
What does the Mac’s lifespan tell us about the iPhone’s future?
Uh, it will live?
The Mac hasn’t died because customers need to do what the Mac does, and Apple keeps differentiation sufficient from the typical Windows PC that the Mac’s customer base now exceeds 100-million customers.
Yet, the Mac thrives. iPhone will continue to thrive for many years.
