Apple During the conference call yesterday about Apple's financial results, COO Tim Cook reiterated Apple's negative stance towards the netbook market. While many of us might want to see a relatively cheap Apple netbook with Mac OS X, all the recent figures do seem to confirm that it simply isn't a good idea for Apple.

In a way, I think he is right about the iPod Touch and the iPhone being in [the netbook] market.


While I wouldn't consider the iPod Touch a netbook, I would consider it -- and use it as -- a PDA. In fact, once my Dell Axim X51v bites the dust, I most likely will go with an iPod Touch to replace it.

Well, I think it accomplishes the same tasks most use a netbook for, and if Apple were to make a netbook, it would use the same software and software distribution model as the iPhone/iPod touch.
