"Apple has some hot products on sale, and its designs push many an envelope. But are its decisions skewing the PC industry somewhat? The answer is yes."
I don't think there is any doubt that the announcement of the specs and pricing of the iPad 2 surprised some of the competitors. They control the supply, they buy in bulk, and when they change suppliers they can affect an entire industry. When you have that much control as well as control the operating system component, you pretty much dictate what the market does, especially evidenced by how they are playing catchup like they are doing with the iPad and upcoming iPad 2. At least that is how it appears to me. So do you think Apple is leading the way in technology for the betterment of an industry or is it more sinister? Or could it be both?
