[Phil Hoppes] "The question is why? When iOS approaches 85% to 95% of your revenue you kill off all of your OSX devices by making A10 16x Core iMac's and Mac Air's. Apple will then have killed Intel CPU's in all of their devices so they have more control over the architecture. With Annobit's acquisition they are on a roadmap to completely eliminate hard drives from their boxes so the only thing left in a vertical integration is display technology. With +$100B in the bank I don't see that as a problem.

So why in the world would you continue to put resources in development of an OS that you no longer make platforms for? Which actually rings a bell... of course HP would buy it. Can you say Palm OS?
"


Or maybe the other way round? Apple are winning the war in the consumer sector why not open up a second front in the enterprise sector?

I know it's not likely, but that's a large amount of money they are sitting on.
