Twenty years ago I figured Apple was a goner. By then nearly every non-PC platform -- the Amiga, Atari, etc. -- were either dead or dying. I just couldn't see the Mac or Apple surviving.
But Steve Jobs is way smarter than me, and during his second reign (remember when he got fired from his own company?) built Apple into a computing and electronics powerhouse.
Turns out the Mac isn't all that important after all. Sales of iPods, iPhones, iPads, along with applications and music are where the real money is.
All that led to Apple now having a market cap larger than Microsoft.
The lesson here? Never bet against Steve Jobs.
What is your favorite Apple product? Is Jobs a genius, a control freak or both? Answers welcome at [email protected]
