Marginalization of the Mac

There's been much blogging recently about how Apple is, apparently, marginalizing the Mac and not doing much to improve it. Here is an article from the TidBITS Newsletter that talks more about this. It is a bit startling when one realizes that Macs only comprise roughly 10% of Apple's business. Apple definitely is focusing on their core business, which isn't computers. And computers have been around for a long time and have become more of a commodity, whereas the smart phone, smart pad and smart watch are newer and more exciting, with more growth potential. The article doesn't prognosticate on the future of the Mac, and Apple isn't going to just walk away from $22 billion of business (I hope), but the market might walk away if the Mac continues to be marginalized.
