Como es bien sabido: la imitación es el mejor de los halagos.
“In the competition between PCs and Macs, we outsell Apple 30-to-1. But there is no doubt that Apple is thriving,” Ballmer wrote in the email, a copy of which was obtained by the Wall Street Journal. “Why? Because they are good at providing an experience that is narrow but complete, while our commitment to choice often comes with some compromises to the end-to-end experience.”
Going forward, Ballmer said Microsoft will be changing the way it works with hardware vendors to mimic the experience offered by the Mac maker in which there will be “absolutely no compromises.” His plan calls for a similar approach in the mobile phone arena, where he hopes the company can create “great end-to-end experiences” akin to that afforded by Apple’s closed ecosystem, where it maintains tight control of nearly every aspect of a product’s design.
