The resurgence of Apple Mac is real – can it last?

“Stock exchange indexes fell, then rose again, on the news that emerged from Apple Computer. Millions of adoring fans awaited the announcement of new Apple products, during an invitation-only event where thousands had to be turned away. New Macintosh computers were unveiled, on the heels of astounding news that Mac sales were increasing in the US by 45% per year, even as it begins the transition to a new processor platform. And the face of CEO Steve Jobs, emerging like a genie from atop the wide monitor of the new iMac, graced the cover of Time magazine,” Scott M. Fulton, III writes for Tome’s Guide Daily. “What decade is this again?”

Fulton writes, “Just to be arguing what role the Macintosh will play in the market, with the presumption that it will play a role, is on a personal note, a welcome feeling. Whether you’re a Windows, Linux, or Mac user, you have to acknowledge that the way we use computers today was, to a very large extent, created by Apple. I covered the Macintosh throughout the 1980s and ’90s for Computer Shopper, back when people used that magazine to help raise the level of their children at the dinner table. As far back as 15 years ago, I produced pieces about the Macintosh’s last-minute rescue from imminent demise. And here we are again, talking about Steve Jobs’ next set of innovations, and pondering how the rest of the world will respond. Welcome back, old friend.”

  1. “the way we use computers today was, to a very large extent, created by Apple.”

    Absolutely. Without Steve, we would still be typing c:/ to start the day. Without Bill and Mike, underpowered boxes would still cost $5,000.

    What a country!

  2. Anecdotally, from my little corner of the world, there is a lot of buzz about Apple. I know five people who switched to Macs this year. One them is one of the directors of the company I work for. (It’s only a matter of time, I reckon, until the whole office switches over). Two more friends will be buying Macs next year.

    All of this was unthinkable a year ago.
