Apple Apple's Phil Shiller has been trash-talking Android in the press these past few days - just as Samsung is about to launch its Galaxy S4. "Public, preemptive slamming of a competitor is far outside Apple's PR wheelhouse; it's a dramatic shift for a company used to making news rather than reacting to it. But why is it happening?" The Verge hits the nail on the head: "Cupertino's behavior this week is yet another symptom of Samsung's stratospheric rise in the smartphone market globally, a rise that challenges Apple and has outright stifled Android competitors like HTC and Sony."

A rich one I guess. And businesses.

But that's why I mentioned that the iMac never was/is the success the iPod, iPhone and iPad were/are: for most people it was too expensive.

I could afford one in 1998, but I was in to Windows and Linux, not seeing a need for one and only tried it when I could get one for free.

For Apple, despite not selling loads, it was/is a success as they turn in a nice profit.
