In my previous thread about the current CPU chip wars:
the idea was proposed by one poster that the Macintel is the first indication that Apple is slowly getting out of the computer business, hardware and even software. I've read others on Applefritter make similar predictions at different times on different threads recently, or at least hints of such predictions, so maybe it's time to pose the question here, how many of you actually foresee the end of Macintosh and the Mac OS? Are the barbarians at the gates? Is there simply too much competition fast arising in both hardware and system software for Apple to remain viable in the personal computer market? And how many of you would see this as a good thing?
What would happen to Apple without Macintosh? Where would the logo go? The iPod's market share must certainly diminish soon enough, but will Apple find a way to design itself into our lives in other ways? Any ideas on how it should? Or is the inevitable end of the big bitten Apple foreseeable as well?
