Apple I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle. When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed, iPhone OS 4 was not on the map and Apple had not yet purchased Lala. You've probably just noticed that all of these events in fact point toward Apple embracing the web more and in this article I will point out why this is not the case because I believe Apple's agenda here is similar to something we've already seen in recent history.

"apple business model does not scale"

Apple's business model is based on getting the biggest slice of the revenue pie in any market. That's been completely successful, and scaled well, in laptops, mobile phones, music players and (now) tablets. And it's the biggest music retailer in America.

So in what way does it "not scale"?
