While Apple excels in hardware design and integrated software, the company struggles with web services. Yours truly in Mac360:
Apple’s forays into web services haven’t met with the same stellar excellence as hardware and software. MobileMe. Ping. Apple Maps. All blemishes of the third kind.
Here’s the problem with all the criticism of Apple’s failed web services efforts. What? Failed is too strong? Alright, insert struggling instead. The problem is this. Who else makes money in web services?
So, Apple isn’t doing so well in web services? Who cares. There’s no money in it anyway.
