Comment on "Apple is About the Mac"
by Rob — Jan 26
I could see Apple pushing the Mac and Filemaker divisions into one company and pushing them out, especial as Jobs and the other core execs age and tire of the increasing complexity of the computer business.

BUT THIS OUTLOOK COMES FROM TODAYS PERSPECTIVE, we have had only ONE Christmas season where Apple totally dominated computer sales at Amazon, and at least 2 or 3 more seasons like that should be coming.

Also the new flash improved machines will help Apple.

What looks like a lock down now may later turn into an OS that uses virtualization so that Apple apps run in there OS and everyone else gets their separate OS, that way Apple apps can shine and be totally bug free.

This would be done to increase Apple quality and create TOTALLY safe platforms for selling movies in China and India where they think bootlegging is good for their country !!!

The numbers for computers in those countries is not so high because they are poor but for phones is HUGE.

Now South Korea, they might be a big new market for computers, maybe bigger then Japan.
