Is Apple Stuck In Niche Market Irrelevance?

What was everyone saying about me being anti-Apple around here? What would give you that idea? Here’s an article from Business 2.0 suggesting that Apple’s current strategy is doomed to keep them stuck in “niche-market irrelevance”. It includes two suggestions that might help Apple gain more marketshare. First, improve networking compatibility so that Apple machines can easily connect to Microsoft networks. Second, stop relying on the PowerPC chip. The first suggestion is to take away one barrier that many companies (and schools) face that make it difficult for them to purchase Macs. The second is because it seems unlikely that Motorola will be able to keep pace with Intel.
