Apple "I think that Apple could be just as strong and good and be open, but how can you challenge it when a company is making that much money?", Wozniak told a crowd in Sydney, according to ITNews. They'd score so many brownie points the internet would explode.

When Apple, and Next for that matter, manufactured their own hardware, they couldn't compete with other companies. They just didn't have the economies of scale.

Jobs learned that the hard way. What differentiates Apple now is Design and Software and the (relatively) seamless integration of value added services (namely iTunes - which for all it's flaws is still better than the competition). Apple has ZERO marketing presence where I am and it's products' usage has mushroomed in the last 10 years.

It's an unfortunate fact that what we as geeks want, and what makes a company (with profit seeking shareholders) profitable are not often compatible.
