Apple Cult Becoming a Religion - New York Times

I'm not so sure -- reading the more objective Apple TV reviews this week, understanding the competitive context iPhone will launch into,  and seeing Apple history repeat with many of the strategic errors Steve Jobs made ~25 years ago, I think it's likely Apple will falter in several ways over the next couple years.

APPLE will not release the iPhone until June, but Leander Kahney, the writer of “The Cult of Mac” blog, posited this week on Wired News that the new phone is already partly responsible for a major change in how the company is perceived (wired.com). After nearly three decades, Apple is finally being taken seriously not just by the true believers, but by just about everybody.
