The "Secret" Behind Apple's Loyal Customer Base Writing for SeekingAlpha, Carl Howe opines that the secret to Apple's customer loyalty is that there is no secret. "The truth behind the scenes is not that Apple has a large group of customers that are too dedicated and passionate about their products, or the company as a whole. The reality is far more simple and obvious: Apple simply has a large group of very satisfied customers ? and that's the secret ingredient left out of nearly every analysis or op-ed piece that mentions these 'zealots.'"

Six Things Apple Needs to Fix by 2008 Appleology lists six changes it thinks Apple needs to make by 2008, including completely revising or scrapping .Mac and a Mac OS X interface refresh. "I know many proud .Mac subscribers may disagree, but I just do not understand how the services Apple offers in its .Mac subscription is close to being worth $99. It offers sub-par bandwidth and memory restrictions and packaged with a lot of bloatware that can be substituted for free alternatives." More.
