Apple should give their shareholders their money back and sell the company. Isn't that what Michael Dell said years ago?<br><br>Too many lives they've spent across the ocean. Too much money been spent upon the moon. Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night. They better make some changes and do it soon. -Things Goin' On/Lynyrd Skynyrd

There are two computer people that I absolutely despise; Michael Dell and Rob Enderle.<br>Both predicted the imminent demise of Apple.<br><br>4/12/2001 - Michael Dell<br>"If you look at proprietary computer companies, whether it's Digital or Silicon Graphics (SGI ) or Apple (AAPL ), I think the fates are all relatively similar. We know how the movie ends. It's just a question of what happens in the middle. Apple has a very little customer base. If you look at the economics, it has been extremely hard for Apple to get a return on its R&D with a shrinking volume base. It's not to say that Apple's products aren't innovative or cool, but the economic factors here are so overwhelming, it's very hard for them to swim against that tide."<br><br>Nobody has predicted the demise of Apple as often as Rob Enderle.<br>Yet he is the person the news media turns to when they want a quote for a computer story.<br><br>10/28/2002 - Rob Enderle<br>"Apple is being driven out of every segment but consumer: Companies are driving out non-standard hardware and both increasingly view Linux as a better alternative platform and UNIX as a platform they don't want to resurge on the desktop. The lack of management tools, pull back of key vendors like Quark and an anticipated drop in market share below 2 percent in 2003 are obsolescing this platform. Apple's continued technical disadvantage against Intel is expected to force them to adopt x86 technology by the end of 2003."<br><br><br>
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
