I ♥ the comment, "Apple is great if you’ve got a lot of money and live on an island”! What a douche... And while I don't think a $600 iPad is any more expensive than a $600 Dell or HP device, I also live in Montréal... So Yeah, I do have money and live on an Island! So do millions and millions and millions of people from New York to Japan to Hawai'i to Ireland.

Do these CEO and managers think before they speak or do they just spew diarrhea to make their stock holders think they are doing their job?

Lark said, “It’s not so great if you have to exist in a diverse, open, connected enterprise; simple things become quite complex.” That may have been the case in the 90's, but since that time Apple has learned to "play nice" with other technologies that weren't created by Apple. There isn't much you can't do with an Apple product today, and they often blend into the enterprise environment with very little configuration. This is either a show of ignorance or an attempt to dissuade people from getting an Apple iPad.

Will the iPad succumb to Android and Windows? It's doubtful. Back in the 90's when most people had a PC they'd dissuade people from buying a Mac by saying that everything runs on a PC and you're limited with an Apple product. Now that same argument can be used for Apple because most people will have an iPad and the vast majority of application will be written for it, not the Android or Windows devices. The longer it takes the competitors to copy the iPad and bring their version to market the more weight this argument will hold.

Well, he's kinda right. I don't have a lot of money, but I do live on an island, Long Island, NY. I still want a iPad 2 though. It'll take awhile, but I will get one soon.
