Netgear CEO: Apple 將會開放

Patrick Lo, Netgear CEO:

Once Steve Jobs goes away, which is probably not far away, then Apple will have to make a strategic decision on whether to open up the platform… Ultimately a closed system just can’t go that far … If they continue to close it and let Android continue to creep up then it’s pretty difficult as I see it.

說得 OSX 像是個死了很久的 platform,而且若不是 Steve Jobs 佔著位子,不然 Apple 可以更成功的樣子。似是很懂?

通常這種講到開放或封閉的言論都很無聊,不過 Patrick Lo 倒是引起了一個少人有的觀念。開放慣的東西完全沒有封閉的機會,反過來才有。如果開放創造不出特色且無利可圖,那何苦? iPhone 雖然被指封閉,但有的是機會一條條慢慢開放,要不要的問題而巳。

你把 Android 封閉給我看看?
