Daniel Lyons: Apple Is What Microsoft Was--Bigfoot | Newsweek The Technologist | Newsweek.com

Former Fake Steve/Real Dan Lyons has published his first Newsweek article -- an excerpt: 

The really scary thing about Apple is that it doesn't just make hit products—it controls entire ecosystems. Just as Microsoft controls both the operating system and the applications that run on top of it, Apple owns popular hardware platforms (iPod, iPhone) and operates the only store that can sell music, movies and software programs for those platforms. Apple sets prices and takes 30 percent of the money.
