QOTD: What Would You Suggest Apple Do?

There are a lot of things that make Apple a great business, but then, there are a lot of things that people don't like about Apple either.

Regardless, Apple's existence in in the computer ecosystem is good for competition. No doubt, a lot of manufacturers are taking cues from Apple's styling department. For example, both Dell and HP have chased after the design cues of the MacBook Air.

But Apple's got some issues. This week, analysts reported that Apple took one of its biggest market hits ever and in fact, lost that 1-percent market share that it worked so hard to capture.

The question of the day is: As a PC/Windows user, what would you suggest to Apple to make it more competitive?

The trick here is, what would you suggest to Apple to grow the business, while at the same time preserve Apple's brand?

    License OSX.

    Or at least offer some alternative for entry-level users.

    offer competitive pricing by getting rid of apple tax.

    embrace hackintosh by decoupling osx from apple hardware, sell os for any pc that supports minimal configuration

    offer unlimited access for itunes and unlimited download for ipod, like available for other players.

    stop making it hard for hardware and software vendors to integrate ipod

    allow ipod to play wma (drm) encoded multimedia content, music and videos.

    replace objective-c with java, it's much easier and there are more tools and larger community of developers.

    Allows other companies like dell etc to make macs. Really if mac osx is such a great os so much better then pc then why the so call "quality control" instead of opening it up for the greater public not everyone needs a pearl white mac.
