I’m thinking about switching to Apple but what’s Apple switching to… Windows? PC Magazine has an article Will Apple Adopt Windows? John C. Dvorak writes that Yakov Epstein, a professor of psychology at Rutgers University, is convinced that the process had already begun.
Epstein made four observations. The first was that the Apple Switch ad campaign was over, and nobody switched. The second was that the iPod lost its FireWire connector because the PC world was the new target audience. Also, although the iPod was designed to get people to move to the Mac, this didn’t happen. And, of course, that Apple had switched to the Intel microprocessor.
Breaking the news would be very difficult but…
Luckily, Apple has a master showman, Steve Jobs. He’ll announce that now everything can run on a Mac. He’ll say that the switch to Windows gives Apple the best of both worlds. He’ll say this is not your daddy’s Windows. He’ll cajole and cajole, and still hear a few boos. But those will be the last boos he’ll hear, for then the Mac will be mainstream.
