“According to a recent study by research firm ChangeWave, Apple’s Macintosh line of computers is well on its way to gaining a sizable portion of the computing market in the coming months,” Don Reisinger blogs for CNET.
Reisinger continues, “While there are still quite a few fanatics out there that wouldn’t buy a Mac just because it’s made by Apple, I firmly believe an increase in Apple market share is not just good for Apple, it’s good for all consumers too.”
“After all, if Apple brings innovation and progress to the industry, wouldn’t it force other companies to do the same?” Reisinger asks. “Suffice it to say, Apple is the world’s best trend setter. And a world where Apple is commanding such a large portion of the market could be quite appealing to all of us.”
Reisinger writes, “Think about it: before Apple started changing the way products were designed and it finally realized that technology goes far beyond specs, most companies were content with homely devices. Nowadays, if a product is downright ugly (did someone say the Kindle?), most people will laugh and move along.”
Reisinger writes, “People are becoming more and more enticed by Apple products and with the perfect storm developing with Dell’s outright tailspin and Microsoft’s costly Vista blunder, the next decade could be Apple’s.”
