Apple's Achilles Heel Is Neither the Mac Nor the iPhone

Apple's Achilles Heel

A couple of interesting pieces got me thinking about Apple. The first was by Neil Cybart, who wrote, “The Mac Is Turning into Apple’s Achilles’ Heel.” The second was John Gruber reacting to that, saying ” The Mac is not Apple’s Achilles heel. The iPhone is.” They’re both well written and insightful pieces, but they’re also both wrong. Bryan Chaffin offers his thoughts.
