Yeah, I wonder the same thing. Remember when everyone in tech said the PC is dead? T.T. O’Brien figured out what happened:
Why isn’t the Mac dead after nearly 36 years on planet earth as the least significant PC in terms of marketshare? What does the Mac’s lifespan tell us about the iPhone’s future?
I dunno. Why? What?
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.
Long live the Mac.
When you read those arcane missives about how Apple is doomed, the iPhone will die, just remember that the Mac continues to prosper after almost 36 years with a far smaller customer base and marketshare.
