Succeeding as a Company

What the flying fuck does this mean:

To succeed with this service, and as a company, Apple needs to tempt the other 97 percent of computer users.

So I suppose the, oh, 27+ years that Apple's been in business make it a non-success? That they won't be a success until they get above 10% market share? All the money they've made, the revolutions they've begun, and all the money they've got in the bank, those are no longer measures of success?

bah.pngI hate car analogies as much as the next guy, but c'mon, this is a Business 2.0 article? Do they consider BMW a failure as a company? To Business 2.0 I award a much-coveted Bah!

  1. It's really time for all of us a mac afficionados to fully accept the fact that there is a segment of the worlds population that will just never allow themselves to believe in Apple. Sad a fact as that is, and it is sad, it seems like we'll always be climbing uphill in our battle to sway folks to the Apple way of doing things.

    That being said, i for one plan on continuing the struggle...

  2. Yes, the sad story of Apple's stock price should more than prove that there is a large segment of the world that refuses to believe in Apple. Given the huge cash reserves they are sitting on for a company of their size, and a positive cash flow in this economic time, the stock price should be well above where it is. But it never is worth more than "dirt cheap" except for the pump-and-dump before/during MacWorlds.

  3. I am new to the internet and I am surfing here and this is very interesting reading. I did a search in the search engines on "company blog" and I found your web blog.

    I am a Lawyer in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and thus my interest in searching for a company blog on the WWW.

    I just wanted to see how the rest of the world thinks and see what trends and technology are happening in the world. I also was interested in a blog for myself which might possibly lead to a blob for my law firm, you never know, that is if I can understand the technology of operating a blog. The different things discussed on a website found by searching for "company blog" in the search engine is very amusing reading to this Halifax Lawyer.
