Off topic, but...

gman: the clones didn't force apple to get competative, they were just up cack creek without a paddle anyway. The company went through a major shakeup at that point and got in Steve Jobs, who killed the clones off as one of his first acts.

Clones didn't force Apple to be more competative (if you can kill the clones at will, it's no incentive) - Apple being run poorly for the last decade forced Apple to get competative :)

Now, you can feel free to draw comparisons about crap management perhaps ;)
