Reporting for The Washington Post on Apple’s Q1 2007 financial results, they quote, of all people, Rob Enderle, who offers this golden nugget:
Analyst Rob Enderle said Apple might soon start to feel more
pressure from its longtime rival Microsoft, which is about to
launch a big marketing splash for Windows Vista, the biggest
upgrade of its operating system since the arrival of Windows XP in
2001. That “will probably keep people out of Apple stores for a
while,” Enderle said.
Please, Mr. Enderle, offer me a wager as to whether Apple Stores will suffer a downturn in either foot traffic or sales upon the release of Vista.
