You honestly think Apple has only been lucky? Hate to burst your bubble but you don't get to a trillion dollar market capitalization on luck. As for whether they are the best at this or that.. *shrug* who cares? Certainly not me. Maybe someday they'll get their first purchase from me, but I wouldn't advise you holding your breath until it happens. They certainly aren't going away anytime soon.

Apple is lots of things, stupid isn't one of them, at least generally speaking. I'm sure there are examples of some bad stumbles, that said they have successfully bled their customers all the way to a trillion dollar company.
That is the only measure of success that matters.
Yep. Bleeding people is good, it is the only way to get anywhere in this world...

Lucky and stupid are not the same thing. Apple has survived in spite of constant stupid decisions. We aren't talking about slightly stupid decisions, we are talking completely stupid.
We are talking about being the market leader in computers and loosing it.
We are talking about being able to become tge market leaders again and squandering it.
We are tslking about being the market leader in music devices and squandering it.
We are talking about the ability to be the world leader in cellphones and squandering it.
We are talking about being the world leader in music and squandering it.

.This isn't stumbling, this is showing a level of incompetence that most companies couldn't afford to do once. Just look at Nokia. Apple has done this at least 8 times.

They are going from an unimaginable stupid development cycle, to an extremely stupid one!
Sure that is an improvement, but not much of one.
How do inept people keep ending up as team leads at large companies?
