Thanks for this, very relevant to readers of EBN. Also the article does make a good point about how Apple probably could realistically compete with TV's.

Here's a link to the first page of the article, in case you don't feel like copy & pasting the link below. It really is worth a read!

@Tech4people, Nice article. Thanks for sending the link and digging it up. The emphasis on supply chain is critical to Apple's success but not many realize it. It's success there adds to its efficiency

Bolaji,

There is no disputing the fact that Apple is a massive-massive success today.

The more the esteemed readers of EBN can learn about this success(& especially the role played by Supply Chain integration here)-The better it is for everybody.

I really liked the way Apple users lasers here.

Regards

Ashish.

Alex,

I agree wholeheartedly.

Apple has figured out what (atleast right now looks like) the best way to deal with all the challenges that a manufacturer in the electronics industry faces today.

Will the same whole true in the future?

I am not so sure(primarily because these things change so fast and so frequently in this space)its quite stunning really...

Regards

Ashish.
