Until Apple halve their prices they will never gain significant ground in computing market share. Their profits come from i??? products and related services (iTunes, Appstore).

So it is us the consumer who is still getting shafted since Commodore, Atari and Acorn went down the pan. Still nothing out their even worthy to share space with a 1985 520ST let alone A1000.

Microsoft Windows PCs.....cheap disposable rubbish.
Apple computers doubly expensive mildly less rubbish.

What the report fails to realise is Xbox, Kinect and corporate customers/OEM/pre-install captured market mean Microsoft will never go bust this decade. Neither will Apple crack the lucrative corporate sales in computing outside arty farty niche companies BUT have a huge presence in telephony/handheld tech market.

Bit of ill-informed non-news really.

Okay that "report" is yet more rubbish to use the term of the moment :-)

So many sites posting news that is either false, based on no fact etc... the grammer and spelling for some are not up to par and the lack of research is staggering :-)

Our local papers that are now online have turned to quick fixes, either rushing out badly edited junk or streaming news from other sites without even checking what they're streaming.

The world today maybe the information highway but it's quantity not quality. Social media sites are a wash of crap. Anyway I've gone off topic.

MS isn't decaying it's changing for sure. As for Apple over priced PC hardware these days. OSX/iOS loaded with bugs, immature fisher price feel, limitations galore not only hardware wise but software. Yet people follow the ihype train.
