Is Apple The New Microsoft?

Now, listen up, folks. It is my own strong personal belief that there are no stupid questions. This question, however is testing that belief to it’s limits.

Is Apple the new Microsoft? Of course it is. Just as Microsoft is the new IBM. And “insert smaller ‘cool’ company” is the new “insert bigger ‘uncool’ company”.

Has Apple made a mistake? Of course they have. Can they rectify it? Of course. Will they rectify it? Certainly not. This is just a minor hiccup in the ongoing struggle of a company with a changing media landscape. Remember: the Internet is the most democratic medium of all. Think different about that fact for a while.
