Apple sells hardware, not the OS
Authored by: Auricchio on Apr 18, '08 08:50:00AM

Apple makes money as a hardware company, not as an OS supplier. This was the case 15 years ago, and it's still the case today.

Apple sells hardware, not the OS

Funny. I've managed to buy quite a few software items from the Apple store. You might want to check it out. It's pretty sweet, man. Right now, I'm using a browser called "Safari". Came with an OS called Tigger, which I installed over Pants-Hair, and that over Jah-McGuire or something. You can do email and all sorts. You should stop using your Apple things as doorstops and see what happens when you "plug" them "in".

What does your comment have to do with Apple making money off the OS? Yes, Apple provides a rich experience in OS X, but that is done to drive sales of Mac hardware, which is what makes them money. Many of their products use the same model. Look at the iPod and the iTunes Store- The iTS doesn't make them much profit. It's all done to help drive adoption of the iPod, which is lucrative for them.

Again, I have no idea what point you were trying to make above.
