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.

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.

true. but to realy maintain this ability of choice we have to make sure that the big corporations do not put their big fat as down on any standards...

as long as we have standards that are free for anyone to implement and use, and if they extend on them release equaly free documentation on the extensions, the level of choice can remain.
