Apple CNBC had an interview with Steve Jobs. In the interview, Jobs talks about the new Apple store in New York which will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The interview is quite lightweight - Jobs doesn't reveal anything we haven't heard before and the questions aren't particularly incisive. One interesting comment is made towards the end of the interview though. When asked about AMD, Jobs says that AMD is strong in the high-end server sphere but that Intel have the best notebook and desktop chips (he mentions Intel's Yonah chip) which is where Apple's primary focus lies.

But who's to say that Apple can't tie their software to their hardware. Their software is written at a very intimate level with the hardware just the same. It's one of the reasons Macs "just work". Just because you'd like to run OS X on non-Apple hardware doesn't mean that needs to be the case.

If the mobo on my PS2, for example, were to blow, I'd have to go through Sony. When some computer chip in my car malfunctions, I have to go through the manufacturer. This is nothing new. Apple has always done this. Just because they made the move to x86 doesn't mean their business model is gonna change. It's still Apple, and it's still a Mac.

Oh, then I totally hear your case. ;)

Apple really isn't for everyone, the same way Dell/IBM/HP/Etc aren't for everyone and the way *nix isn't for everyone.

The beauty is that we really do have choice in the market place.
