Default Apple Losing Market Share Due to Netbooks?

"According to DisplaySearch-a provider of information, consulting and conferences on the display supply chain and display-related industries- netbook shipments grew by 160 percent in the third quarter of 2008. This means that "companies that have missed or decided not to play in the netbook market-such as Apple-have lost market share," reports The Guardian."


Okay...  Maybe mathematically this might be true, but I'm not even sure I buy it in that regard either.  Anyway, this isn't the first time Apple has been criticized for its prices and not catering to the low-end and playing the margin game and it probably won't be the last.

Besides...  Who says Apple isn't going to pull a Netbook out of its hat in January?


Just sayin'.
