Apple computer is dead, long live Apple consumer electronics.

He did announce a name change from Apple Computer Inc. to Apple Inc. :

"The Mac, iPod, Apple TV and iPhone. Only one of those is a computer. So we're changing the name," said Jobs. "We're announcing today that we're dropping the 'Computer' from our name, and from this day forward we're going to be known as Apple Inc."

I don't see this as a bad thing. I am already syncing at least 2 devices with my computer (ipod and cellphone). The convergence of these devices is a real trend and Apple is on the forefront of it, why not change the name to reflect it ?
