The buzz word at both the Macworld conference and Consumer Electronics Show last week was “convergence”. In the Gizmo world “convergence” is probably best defined as the coming together of numerous, varied electronic devices. Example: The new Apple Video iPod allows you to download TV shows directly to your iPod and watch them “On Demand”. In recent years the leader in the convergence field has been Apple Computer. Apple has experienced an amazing turn around in the past few years. About five years ago Bill Gates (you know, the Microsoft guy) helped Apple stay afloat by investing millions of dollars in the computer company. The result…a turn around, led by the iPod, that has been stunning. It truly amazes me that Steve Jobs (Apple’s founder and CEO) beat the stuffing out of his rival, the giant Microsoft in the digital music area (that’s like me beating the defense and sacking Tom Brady for a lose). Apple launches iTunes, iPods, Nano’s VideoiPods and Microsoft launches…well, little…and it continues… At the MacWorld conference yesterday, Jobs announced that Apple would be installing Intel Microprocessing chips in its new iMac’s…Who cares???? Well, listen to this…Apple claims this will make the new iMac five times faster than its predecessors… Hello Bill, Bill!, anyone home Bill! (knuckles tapping on top of the billionaire’s head)…Its come to the point that Microsoft executives hope to “close the gap” on Apple’s operating system when they launch Vista later this year…Of course, most experts believe Microsoft has the “bucks” and power to turn this trend around…right Bill?, Bill!? Hello!… anyone home Bill?!… and history does have a tendency to repeat itself…just ask Goliath..
