Cringley ties it all together and why the Aperture group
Cringely does, in fact, often make very little sense, and this article is an example of that.
Apple almost certainly doesn't want Adobe. Much of what Adobe does these days is enterprise digital document stuff, in which Apple has no interest. The only Adobe products Apple might conceivably want to buy are CS2 and Flash.
Sorry this works better 1122
We do. What we don't buy is the "Macs are not populasr enough" argument. SOMEBODY...
It's also nuts to think that Apple *needs* to buy Adobe. Something like half of all CS2 sales are on OS X, which means Adobe is about as likely to drop OS X support as it its to drop Windows support. And anyway, if Apple did want to move into Adobe's market, the way to do it would be to write *new* apps; Adobe's stuff is, in some respects, getting a little long in the tooth.
Anyway, yeah, Cringely is basically just a slightly less malicious version of Dvorak.
