so, within 5 years from a standing start, this new "X" company is going to build up a knowledge and expertise and develop an OS for mobile and desktop, thats is going to better a company that has being doing it for over 30 years, made mistakes, learned, changed, adapted, innovated and amassed over $150 billion cash mountain
i don't know if its just me, but I would LOVE to be alive to see something like that happen. Heck the last 10 years in tech have been pretty cool.
Did it occur to him that IF, just IF, this company X started and even remotely looked like gaining some sort of traction in year 1 or 2, Apple could just use some of that $150 billion and buy them?
My prediction: things will be much different in the future and by 2100 there will be other companies that we haven't heard of now.
Makes me much more valuable then him, as I can predict stuff WAAAAYYY further into the future.
