Steve Jobs responds to Mac vs iPhones. But clones?

Iphone 2

destinyland (578448) writes "Responding to Newsweek's "RIP, Macintosh" article, Steve Jobs replied to Macsimum News, "Completely wrong. Just wait." (Though ironically, it was sent from Jobs' iPhone.) Newsweek's article had quoted Jobs as telling a developer that "We are focusing primarily (though not exclusively) on iPhone OS this year. Maybe next year we will focus primarily on the Mac. Just the normal cycle of things. No hidden meaning here." But Technology analyst Ronald O. Carlson is predicting the next phase might see Mac clones. ("It's a highly mature product category that doesn't require the company's full, direct attention... all Apple would need to do is build the OS and certify hardware a la the App Store.") It could even drive competition in the PC space, he argues, creating shorter and cheaper hardware development cycles."
