Argonaut & The Strange Attractors
Argonaut and the Strange Attractors

Switch to An Apple Laptop? You Betcha.


Switch to An Apple Laptop? You Betcha.

Well slightly short of my expectations, but in line with the past incremental increase and near future obsolescence.

It is a no brainer.

On every level, every point from aesthetics to utility, these are the finest consumer products being made presently.

Look forward to the white 13-inch MacBook ($999)  with Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel integrated graphics, 1GB RAM, and a 120GB hard disk.

Although I had hoped for more. These will sell well.
Apple hotcakes WHEN a few more additions are made.
Will they ever get that 3G into these laptops??????

Also, the step-up MacBooks, at $1299, with the nVidia GeForce 9400M integrated GPU and 2GB of RAM.
Still better than any PC out there.

The Air keeps the same basic pricing scheme as the first-generation models ($1799 and $2499)
Look forward to the hard drive (a 120GB HDD or 128GB SSD!!!) and nVidia GeForce 9400M GPU.

Why is this so cool? It places this machine in the middle of the ring with Samsung’s  announced NP-X360–which costs  the same amount. The will punch it out with spec-for-spec attributes most of the way. And, Apple has the nVdia edge.

Apple will continue to kick but with its entire consumer electronics divisions.

Social Leadership and Biologic Self-Orginizational Behaviour


Dear Apple.

What is up. Did you read HBR recently?

We need an innovative leader to hand the torch over to.  This economy requires the swiftness of learning, dexterity, the constitution of a leader that can flex the courage of conviction, and empathically listen to the expertise within the organization. Balance that with respect for the founder’s principals and their developed culture and listen to the wisdom of one of the best boards on the planet.

We need to listen to our employees. They are the human assets of this organization.  They construct the value underlying the Brand Equity. Do not underestimate their value.

We need a Leader, out of the mainstream.  Innovative, to lead this company to the top of the new economy.  To ride the wave of prosperity that will surf the detritus of poor decisions in the financial markets. Apple can do it. There is no need to be be satisfied with low market share. These are the times that companies can surge. It cannot be missed.

Apple has the best products on earth.  Nothing comes close. Lets leverage a CEO with youthful attachment to the new culture, Social Web 2.0 experience from technology to culture and experienced to have the wisdom of the garage startup, the grey hair of the flexability of selforganizational knowledge, and the attributes of Attunement and Empathy. Awareness of the organization. We need to develop the resources of the organization and exploit (good connotation, and leverage them), to boundless regions that have never been reached for.

The emergence of selforganization, and it’s basis in social structure as I opine on it can be found in vestigial boolean form, in Stuart Kaufman’s The Origins of Order.  I have just applied that logic to the business cycle.

So much opportunity, so much Brand equity, the growth is there for the taking, however, a leader must lead the charge!!!
