You didn’t make such assumption I agree.
I reacted to such comments at your article like the one about Apple having 5 years before being taken out by Google etc…
Just after the passing of Steve Jobs in 2011, I was like the majority, concerned about the ability of Apple to survive the death of its visionary in-chief.
But alone against a herd of fierce competitors in various domain like Google, Samsung, chinese manufacturers etc… Apple has transformed itself to be the biggest and richest influent tech/consumer company in the world.
How could they achieve this in such short time and formidable competition without a great execution?
Yes, there are temporary glitches but that happend to every one. :( Samsung as a proof)
