why Apple is so right about their fight over patents? well..to understand the fundamental problem we have to go way back in time to the mid 80’s.
in 1984 Apple was the first company in the world to launch the first GUI OS called Macintosh. that was a revolutionary in any shape or form. yes I know some of you will remind me that the idea came from the Xerox labs, and some people will claim that Steve Jobs stole their ideas and implemented them with the mac.
to make a long story short ill say that it’s half-true since Xerox thought of the general idea but didn’t do anything with it or knew how to get it to the market, as for Jobs, well, he saw the potential and made it work through a whole new concept around those ideas.

As I try to analyse this changes, I want to take a snapshot of the present iChange, and let me tell you what I see:
There is 2 approaches to the markets, the first, is the Apple approach which means I’ll do it all: hardware, software, services, and platforms which are very tight up that allowed 3rd party players to play but with a very specific rules, and the second one is the old school approach of the pc era that there is one
OS that can work with multiple hardware manufactures, services, platforms and so on just like it this picture bellow:
it’s the era of ecosystems, and there for the iChange rule number one is the better experience I get more likely ill will hook up with the rest of the echo system im in. Continue reading
