Anyone who things Company A will never be able to compete with Company B again typically are 14 years old and haven't been around long enough. When you've been watching the tech industry as long as some of we old crusty cranks, you see enough round-abouts and comeback stories to know it all comes and goes in cycles. Remember when IBM were unbeatable and Microsoft was the plucky start-up? And then Apple rose, and fell, and rose again. As did Microsoft. As did Nvidia and ATI and Intel and AMD and EVERYONE ELSE. Swings and round abouts.
