  • I hate to say it however Apple might find yourself reliving [with iPhone] its nightmare expertise within the private laptop market — that’s, arriving forward of everybody else (in 1984) with a tool that was actually cool and very well constructed and actually confirmed what the platform may do, however then preserving every little thing closed and thereby ending up a distinct segment participant.
