  •  more likely Apple gets split up. But IBM didn't, (1+ / 0-)

    Microsoft didn't, and Ma Bell (AT&T) is getting put back together.

    One advantage of monopolies (assuming Apple ever becomes one): Standardization.

    Microsoft SHOULD have been split up -- would have been better for MSFT, the stockholders, and the entire market place (introducing competition), but it would have been worse for Balmer.

    Balmer is no Jobs.  Much of what Apple has created would not have happened without Jobs.  Pretty much EVERYTHING that Microsoft created could have done without Balmer.  IMHO.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
