Motorola’s Superbowl Smackdown of Apple

Did the Motorola Xoom commercial look a little familiar?  We like competition and trying to limit it may be Apple’s Achilles’ heel.

For those too old or too young to recall,  here is Apple’s 1984 Superbowl commercial introducing the Mac, which was a smackdown of the IBM PC.

    If Apple truly limited competition, it wouldn’t be their Achilles heal, it would help them make even more money. I suspect you mean Apple limits choice.

    Regardless, there are plenty of companies striving to compete with Apple. But, make no mistake, Apple invented the consumer friendly PC, the consumer friendly smart-phone, and now, the consumer friendly tablet. Without Apple, the competition would have no one to copy.
