Microsoft Apologist™ Paul Thurrott had no choice. Top Tech Company of 2010: Apple.
If you’re looking for evidence that the former Apple Computer has a hold on the American public, consider this: Many of the company’s biggest products this year were lackluster at best, and yet all were stunning success stories. The company’s iPhone 4 suffers from an amazing rash of hardware problems that the company refuses to even acknowledge, but it’s the best-selling smartphone of the year. The iPad is simply an iPod touch stretched out to four times the original size, and Apple has managed to turn it into a new tech product category. The Apple TV, once considered a hobby by the company’s executives, was replaced by a far less capable version and went on to sell 1 million units in a matter of months. And only Apple could release a $1,000 netbook computer, the MacBook Air, and create a smash sensation.
