Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

And if Microsoft, with their 90% market share and product track record, can't succeed with a search product, then you can pretty much nail the coffin shut on search services.

You can never count out the little guys with the big ideas...especially those working out of their garage. Just ask Jobs.


Apple isn't run out of a garage, and is hardly a little guy, at least in terms of revenue.

(um, pretty sure he was referring to the origins of the company, not present-state. Same with my comment on Gates. IBM thot Gates was a dope, figured there would never be any money in the software. Oops.)

I don't see any evidence of that. If you look at it from a market share position, then Apple is a small company compared to MS, but compared to most companies, Apple is very large and successful
