Yager to his imaginary enemies: It's time to get your affairs in orderMan, I saw the title to this article ("Apple to Wintel: It's time to get your affairs in order") and I got all jazzed up. How classic would it be for Apple to actually throw the gauntlet down to Microsoft and the rest of its hardware and software cabal and actually say something along the lines of, hey, we're playing in your sandbox now, and your users know where to get quality? How classic would that be?
Too bad it didn't happen. In spite of the provocative headline, what we get is yet another glimpse at Tom Yager's overly active and Apple-flavored imagination. Seriously, why does he do this?
You can say you were there back in ought-six when 64-bit Macs knocked the bottom out of the Wintel PC client market. A lot of people were scared, kid, but Dell gave us that $100 PC we wanted and Microsoft open-sourced big hunks of Windows.OK. Just so we're clear. He's insane. And it's Tom Yager, not Apple, that's telling Wintel to get it's affairs in order. And once again, what's really happening, at the root of all this hyperbole, is that we've got yet another buffoon positing that this, yes this, is finally the time for Apple to win big in the OS market.
Sigh. I love his dedication. But his head's in the wrong place. And he "doesn't cover the consumer PC market?" Heads-up: That's where Apple competes. You know, the company you write about insessantly.
