Apple - what is left?
I spent some time with a client of mine yesterday and we both are Apple fans and PC converts so naturally the discussion always centers on the Company.
Our conclusion - There is no good reason that Apple won't double it's share of the PC market in the next 5 years.
PLEASE - THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION TO BUY THE STOCK - just me thinking out loud.
I don't care whose expense it is at, just that Apple keeps doing what it is doing -
1. Great hardware design - they understand that fashion and technology mix;
2. Great (for my family) software;
3. Great retail distribution that can triple in size over the next 5 years;
4. Technical support - have not needed much whereas Dell is cutting back at a time they need it most!
5. Competition floundering.
The switch may not be happening as fast as Wall Street likes, but I read daily of tech geeks switching. They are happy!
They write about it on their blogs like they discovered laptop computing for the first time.
There is still much to be optimistic about as an Apple shareholder.
PS - I have been avoiding the photo part of the blog just out of fear. Using FLICKR was so much easier than I could have ever imagined. What a cool blogging tool. It's aesome that Flickr is owned by Yahoo and works with Google Blogger. Downright friendly wars these days in the tech industry. Good for us!
