CNN reflects on Apple's great turnaround


I'll admit it, when I was in college (early 90's), I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that Apple's days were numbered. After Steve's departure and the parade of boring, beige boxes that followed (not to mention the bad press, failed Newton and the ultimate vaporware, Copeland) I begrudgingly admitted that it might be time to learn Windows. The rest, as they say, is a different story.

CNN Money takes a nice look at Apple's turnaround from down-and-out computer company to the darling that it has become. My favorite quote from the article:

"Apple has struck a cultural nerve, especially with Generation X and Gen Y, while Windows and PC are viewed in essence as 'My parents' computer',' said Tim Bajarin, president of technology research firm Creative Strategies."

I love it. Windows as the Buick of the computer world. You can read the full article here.
