William -

I totally agree with your point.

This is from a post by Simon Ubsdell a few weeks ago:

"Contrari-wise we look at Apple (now) and we see a business that only happens by chance to be travelling the same path as we are. Somehow we have chosen to ignore this for a number of years - suddenly the truth of it is inescapable. We have everything to lose, they have virtually nothing. Whether or not they are committed to carrying on along the same path as us, we have been made aware of how precarious the relationship is on our side. We have been very lucky so far, but now we realize that it was indeed luck all along."

As for the quote, it's just that I'm a bit of a Twain-o-phile and it didn't sound right. I looked it up on the web and it is listed on one of those "famous quotes" sites as coming from Twain, along with a lot of other unattributed quotes, about 20% of which also didn't sound like him. Attributing to Mark Twain is like attributing to Yogi Berra, 90% of it is 50% mental.
