Apple declared a 2-for-1 stock split today and I can’t believe the irony here. When they sold computers in the last five years, their prospects were dismal but now that they are a consumer electronics leader, they are growing, splitting stock and basically partying like its 1999 all over again.
The Elegant Mac Mini
My hats off to the company for turning things around when almost no body believed it could be done. When the iPOD was releases, no one knew it would do this well and I am sure the company is more surprised than the rest of us.
Leveraging this incredible success is the next goal and already they are launching products that play off the iPOD theme such as the MAC mini.
What is the future of Apple? They can become the next Sony if they want. The have the marketing an branding down and are now a consumer electronics force. They will likely have some sort of iVideo service (the URL is taken though) next to take on NetFlix. Their future is brighter than ever.
