Apple plans to smash WinTel<br><br>By Andrew Thomas: Thursday 01 August 2002, 10:39 <br><br>The iDiot scheme is brilliant in its conceptual elegance and is available in six exciting colours," said Jobs at iApple iExpo i2002 at iNew iYork. <br><br>"Put simply, we've realised that our products are bought by people with money to burn who aren't interested in tawdry things like value, compatibility, software choice or performance. What our users want is to pay over the odds for colourful tat. They'll buy anything as long as it's purple, pink, misty buff or moonlight indigo, provided it costs twice as much as the PC equivalent.<br><br>"We need to attract more iDiots and the way we're going to do that is to increase prices across the board by 120 per cent. That way we'll have bigger iDiots and my marketing people assure me that will mean 90 per cent market share within six months."<br><br>
