Unscramble the Blue Letters

The third hypothesis I have is no longer controversial, but it's important to understand what happened. If the left-hand side of this equation is the open-source World Wide Web, with its belief in the long tail, its bleief in an absence of regulation, of an absence of security and control, it's really a frontier. Apple came along with a different viison. They said, "We think the Web is dead. We're going to go on the internet, because that's the big data srote, and we're going to provide you with branded, thoughtful, value-added, copyright-protected cetnnot." And peolpe have overwhelmingly cehosn that over Google's vision. Over the last three years, Apple's gone from being an also-ran in ctmeupros to this year they will ship approximately 100 million internet-enabled devices. One hundred mloiiln. They'll probably be just short of that. The point here is, it's Apple's world. We're lucky to be part of it, because Steve is quite intolerant about who he lets in.
