Someone in another thread was talking about the tons of apps for the iphone and how it will always dominate the marketplace. My mind went back to when Apple first started. I bought the Apple II which was the first commercial computing product from that company and was a HUGE hit. There were tons of programs for it including VisiCalc which was THE major A2 player in offices for financial work. The Apple II was an open architecture that allowed for easy expansion and customization. Then Apple got gun shy and came out with the Mac. Very closed, Apple controlling, and you could only get one from Apple. This gave the IBM PC and subsequent clones the opening they needed and from then on, even after Apple regrouped and tried to develop an open architecture, it was too late; the PC had a stranglehold on the home and business marketplace; Apple lost. I see the same thing happening with the iPhone; great idea, but closed, closed, closed. Now an open archtecture platform emerges in Android and the iPhone will eventually be displaced as the best platform.
