Steve Jobs: Death of the Mac “Completely Wrong”
After Apple released iOS 4 at an App Store centric WWDC 2010, many people questioned the future of the Mac. Well, MacsimumNews took it upon themselves to email Steve Jobs and ask about the future of the Mac directly, here’s the exchange:
Newsweek just ran an “obituary” for the Mac, saying the Mac has been “relegated to the steaming dung heap of the past.”
I hope he’s wrong, I believe and hope that the Mac will remain a vibrant, vital part of Apple’s future and one of its (admittedly many) product lines.
So, as you view it, does the Mac have a long and important history ahead of it?
Interestingly enough, Steve Jobs responded in his typical short and sweet manner:
Completely wrong. Just wait.
Here’s a screenshot of the exchange via the aptly named EmailsFromSteveJobs.com:
So does the response from Steve allay the fears of the Mac community? I’m going to go ahead with the assumption that the Mac will be around for a while, but who knows what the future holds? We just have to wait and see the actions (and inactions) of Apple.
