BusinessWeek has a series of articles about Apple this week in a special report entitled Apple: The Next Generation. The five articles look at the company's performance since Jobs took over the reins (again), corporate and government prospects, the role of clustered Macs in supercomputing, and their current push toward regaining market share in education through laptops. Of particular interest is the thread amongst many of the articles of the effect of the iPod in bringing attention back to Apple.
Index to the special report articles:
- Apple: Sweetness Regained
- Will Uncle Sam Like the Taste of Apple?
- The "Big Mac" Supercomputer Biz
- Apple's Back-to-School Blast
- No "Halo" Effect? Look Again
Interesting to note that Apple has about 29% of the market share of laptops going into K-12 classrooms... nice seed work if you can get it.
