Apple After Steve Jobs

The Power of Apple

In a very good piece from John Gruber:

"This is what only Apple can do:

Software updates that are free of charge and so easily installed that the majority of iOS and Mac users are running the latest versions of the OSes (a supermajority in the case of iOS). Apple can release new features and expect most users to have them within a year — and third-party developers can count on the same thing.”

He is essentially saying the same thing that I was saying in conclusion here:

Apple has the power to augment their offering with whatever features they think will add value to the ecosystem and nearly overnight millions of users will be using them everyday. That is powerful and a real value in itself.”
