It is interesting to read the thoughts of people who are so thoroughly engaged in the West Coast computer industry.
This post is very clear eyed about what makes for a street smart company. There is no doubt that being seen as the underdog is no bad thing either.
Like the post as I do, I have to admit that I have no desire for an iphone, am very happy with my current Smartphone - although the best one ever was the Qtek phone James gave me as he left to join Microsoft ;-) I am also writing this on a Toshiba Portege tablet PC using Windows Live Writer even though I own a Mac so I suppose it is not as cut and dried as all that. Although I do regard Phil's adoption of the Mac, even if it is to run Windows one of the signs of change in the air.
