No more “computer” in Apple?

Om Malik has an interesting insight. No, not that the iPhone won’t be here until summer. The fact that Apple dropped “computer” from its name today.

It’s ironic. Apple gets more conversations started here on the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show than any other company. I’m here in the Seagate booth and EVERYONE is talking about Apple today.

  1. Its interesting that though Apple does not blog, it promotes its systems as a platform for blogging, and provides cheap .mac accounts and blogging tools as part of the standard OS X purchase.

    Mac promotes blogging, but does not like to engage in blogging as an organisation. Despite their hip public image Apple has always been more about control than Microsoft.

    As for the phone, it will be entering a crowded market and I predict will have a hard time unlike the iPod. Anyways Apple has to go through another dark age lasting a few years and having evryone wonder about their end until a new product comes along. The post iPod slump has not been long enough, given Apples history they will need to face 2 more years in the wilderness, come up with some amazing new product that changes everything, and then blow it again.

  3. Goebbels – Unlike the DAP scene 5 years ago. There are two companies I trust to do a good job this time up against the iPhone. Microsoft and Nokia.
    Nokia is awesome at user experience even though it is not evident over here in the US.
