No Dave, I wrote what I meant... no disclaimers needed. Under capitalism a
company's duty is to make a profit. That is what I meant, whether their
products are good or not is quite irrelevant (I am not saying that I agree
with that, plus I am more of a socialist than a true capitalist anyways).
Apple has chosen their specific way of providing those profits, thus they
are doing a "good job"

SGI makes good machines that their users tend to like, however they do not
make much in the profit department, hence they are not doing a "good job"
