| I predict that once we launch our new genuinely open devices, consumers
| will very quickly see the value they bring. I'm not talking about
| "techies" or geeks but ordinary folks. As the device evolves and
| functionality increases and improves over time, you get a device
| that's much more valuable. Who would want to be stuck with a static
| device that can't be changed or customized if the market offers them
| an alternative?
| I believe that the "device model" is only winning because no
| "component model" or genuinely open devices have been offered yet.
