Comment on "Apple's Secret Ingredient"
by Scott Stevenson — Sep 05
Microsoft is fearless in its own right, as its attitude in the US antitrust trial is any indication, or in Xbox, or Zune, etc.

It's to talk about Zune since it's not out yet, and the antitrust trial is hard to classify, but certainly in terms of Xbox, their strategy has been to spend immense amounts of money. I'm not sure that's the same as being fearless.

Apple *has* had missteps due to fearlessness, and was able to admit fault in these. Cube cracks. Lack of CDR drives. The great G4 speed dump.

In terms of the CDR thing, Apple did admit to the oversight. Steve said something about it in an interview around the time iTunes starting taking off. He flatly admitted they messed up.

(I'm unable to get the exact quote) to "Stay hungry"

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
