John Moltz at iMore:
Now, Apple is so much more of a success story than a failure story that it seems almost impossible on a quantum mechanical level. That’s really the only thing you need to know to make my case: Apple’s not just successful, it’s incredibly, dramatically, wildly, record-breakingly successful. So demonstrably successful that saying it’s doomed has gone light years past “not even funny anymore” and wrapped all the way around the universe to “thigh-slappingly hysterical” again.
And yet people still believe it’s on the edge of going out of business. Well, as I said, they either believe that or they’re just selling that idea to get attention. Which, of course, also goes on in religion. QED.
I still have friends and acquaintances that deny the possibility that Apple is doing great. Like John, I believe there will come a time that Apple is in fact doomed. There are infinite ways that Apple executives could screw up. But the fact of the matter is that they aren’t doomed now and haven’t been doomed for several years. ∞
