“We note with both a smirk and a worried frown, that even Dell are struggling in the PC world. But standing tall among the debris, and as Chris Seibold noted with his clever graphs, rising from it, is Apple,” Chris Howard writes for Apple Matters.
“With Lenovo buying the IBM line, the fall of other PC brands, by the end of the decade, we may also be buying our computers only from the Asian nations. Who would have believed it late in the 90’s with American brands IBM, Dell, HP, Gateway and Compaq dominating the world market? For the Asian nations of course, this is a great thing, for us we are going to have to reinvent ourselves and our place in technology. The irony is Apple Macs may outlast all of those American PC brands,” Howard writes.
Howard writes, “2005 has been an extraordinary year of product announcements – probably the biggest in Apple’s history – with two or three of them registering 10 on the Richter Scale.”
Howard then reviews the past year and looks forward to Macwordll Expo San Francsco in January 2006, of which he writes that Apple is preparing “to follow up their most significant year in history, with one to match. And if they succeed, they could change the face of computing and home and portable entertainment, more than we’d even dared hoped 12 months ago.”
