What Apple is up to is bigger than you think
If you don't read The Lefsetz Letter, I highly recommend you bookmark it. (It's in my blogroll.) It's a blog on the music business written by a somewhat bitter ex-industry guy. But he also writes about technology, and one of his latest posts, about the latest Apple Worldwide Developer Conference, is a keeper.
The point is, Apple introduced a lot of new hardware, and that got all the media attention, but what they're doing with their ecosystem is the real story, and the one the media is missing. Everything syncing seamlessly and automatically across products. And if you're not in the Apple ecosystem, you're going to be on the outside looking in.
It's a big deal. I'd buy Apple stock now, if it wasn't a bazillion dollars a share.
