PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm currently reading Jerry Kaplan's excellent book "Startup: a Silicon Valley adventure". In this book, Kaplan, founder and CEO of GO Corp., details the founding, financing and eventual demise of his highly innovative company, including the development and workings of their product. What's so surprising about this book is just how timeless it really is - the names and products may have changed, but the business practices and company attitudes surely haven't.

IBMs pedigree and achievements stand out on they're own. IBM has contributed far far more to science (if not modern desktop or mobile computing per se) than Apple. No arguments there.

""Apple being the next IBM" is not saying that they will be the "next big thing". It's saying they will be the next "too big" thing. "

That's just my point, i don't see any evidence of Apple being too big just yet. Agree IBM at it's best did far far more than Apple.
