the author means here than for Apple, it cares to do a BETTER computer. as an artist want to do a better paint

you can speak of violin, we could say Apple is like the stradivarius of computers. if you want to follow his arguments.

I do think computers are tools. but the tools can be perfected, liked and in the end be marvelous. A tool matters too.
