Like the tardis it makes you bigger on the inside.
Hawkins the Physics Guru.
"Were it not for his disability, he'd likely as not be just another Cambridge professor."
Yeah those Cambridge physics professors are as common as muck.

She would need to view them as disasters to understand them.
Multinationals Battle it out.
Multinational1: We make more money selling our overpriced products to our customers.
Multinational2: Hah weve spent millions spying on our customers so we can understand them.
Multinational1: We discovered sticking the word beta on the front of products lets us get away with murder.
Multinational2: Well we've bought all our competitors, so that our products don't look un-innovative.
Multinational1: We've patented the concept of the 'company' give me all your money.
Multinational2: If the (insert random super state) can't touch me, what makes you think you can?
Multinational1: the 3 million employees under the age of 10 ive armed with the "Multinational1 AK47's (tm)".
And thats how world war 3 started, renamed to Web2.1 the new propriety extension of the marketing term Web 2.0.

Microsoft Paper Clip

Mind you I am not impressed with the UI all those dark colours make for a very depressing OS, I think market share is going to go down just down to the increased suicide rate of the fanbase. Message call to Apple "metal and black" is so 90's you in danger of going retro.
2 years to late
The mac is again the machine of choice for the decerning geek, mind you last time that happened, everyone was waiting for a george orwell prediction. Luckily thats happened in the past 2 years as well. Sparkling Wine (all the champaigns been turned to vinegar by the eu) all round.
Apple Licenses its OS
I'm sure they've done this twice before, and as soon as they saw their hardware sales drop; because someone had produced a clone that was cheaper, they quickly reversed their license. Even if they wanted to go through with it and risk the lucrative hardware sales. No one in their right mind will risk their business on licensing apple's OS.
I think the only major difference between apple and microsoft is that apple want money to produce innovation and microsoft want innovation to produce money. When it comes to developers or customers, both give with one hand and take with another; and (choose deity if you got 'em) help you if you step on their toes.
"Removing SA from GPS might, in fact, largely remove the case for Galileo, as many foreign users of GPS would then have more confidence that they could rely on the American system."
