"Apple is a cult of celebrity, and could have faltered at the death of its charismatic leader and company co-founder Steve Jobs"
That's quite an opinion.
Doesn't say much for the decades of work by Apple workers who plugged along with the Mac in a world of Windows crap. OS X computers are easily the most effective yet elegant interfaces, and the iPhone has been a wonderful addition to the tech world.
Does that mean that Android is inferior?
Of course not. It is a much more viable rival to ios7 than windows ever was, yet Windows was the superior market seller.
The entire article is full of childish slams regarding a perceived view of Apple.
Congrats on having a job in the pundit world.
