MSFT), Dell ( DELL) and Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ). At some point, however, this synergy -- for want of a better buzzword -- will fade. If Apple continues to merely refresh existing products or make expected cosmetic changes, it makes it less likely that the halo effect grows stronger and the overall ecosystem wider. Consider what Jeff Bezos is doing at Amazon.com ( AMZN). He has the company in areas it probably has no business being in, however, it's all about extending Amazon's reach. Amazon has no idea what it's doing -- relatively speaking -- with something like original programming, but it's in the space to further Instant Video, which pumps Prime and, thereby, helps increase core e-commerce sales. Same type of logic applies to the slightly-expanded Amazon Prime. While I'm not saying Apple should go quite as willy-nilly as Amazon -- the companies have very different core goals -- it absolutely needs to find a way to infiltrate more/other aspects of its customers' lives. For example, if you have an iPhone and love it, you might be more likely to stick with it -- even if it doesn't see revolutionary changes -- if that iPhone works in concert with some sort of living room technology, preferably a television set. Same goes for iPad. Historically, Apple has done a great job making it easy for you to own just one Apple product, but establishing the allure of owning more than one and getting them to easily and efficiently work together. Nearly every single rumor I hear about Apple's plans doesn't sound like Apple at all. A "cheap" iPhone. Copying others by going with multiple colors or a larger screen size. Getting involved in expensive content deals with big media companies. None of this makes much sense. When I think of Apple and world domination, I don't think of marketshare; rather, I think of the most sticky and aspirational ecosystem in consumer electronics.
