Apple-retail-new-yorkApple’s fiscal second quarter iPhone sales were simply amazing, but the Cupertino company is showcasing the value in diversity more so than any of its competition. Microsoft is simply a decades old franchise, one-hundred-percent dependent on Windows. Google just showed how unsuccessful it is outside of anything but search. Apple’s model of software coupled with various hardware businesses can withstand blows, and expand in ways that continue to defy the odds — and its detractors — alike.

Microsoft, the once mighty and feared software giant, is only a footnote outside of Windows sales. Office is the monster of business workflow, but without Windows and the forced Office bundles, who would value Word or Powerpoint over other solutions available today? Everything Microsoft had, has, and will have, revolves around Windows nothing more. Bing, Xbox and Windows Phone are all long-term financial nightmares for the Redmond, WA techno-giant.

Yet for all the hype and wondrous prototype possibilities that may – or may not – be hidden deep within Apple’s design labs, a 4K/UHD TV that sports an Apple logo may never be in the cards. Our condolences to Gene Munster.

Whether or not Apple could change the way a television functions and interacts with the user is the wrong question to ask. Apple is more than capable of creating markets from scratch and reinvent nascent technologies into something brand new and better. The right question to ask is whether creating a state-of-the-art TV would be worth it for Apple?
