Apple By most counts, they're a hit. But they were intended to woo new users to the fold, yet Mac market share has only budged -- lower, says BusinessWeek.

Marketshare shmarketshare

Apple no longer needs "marketshare" any more than the Rolls-Royce company needs marketshare. Apple products are elite designs for elitists. The PCs and hum-drum MP3 players are the products for the "rest of us" who don't want to spend 50% more money to get an extra 5% in features. Do you have that kind of money to waste? I sure don't.

Apple will probably stick around, but the days of a return to marketshare are long gone unless this company drops its head-in-the-air, holier than thou attitude and brings its prices in line with other products.
