I love how that guy was so incensed that they'd devoted so much to iPods instead of making better servers. Just imagine a world with no iPods, but beefier Xserves... Oh, and Apple going out of business before 2005.

No kidding. I've been a Mac user since the early 90's, and even I would tell you that Apple's long term goal (even during the Steveless era) was to be the next Sony, not the next IBM or HP.
