Twilight of the Trucks: WWDC Was All About Apple’s Big Bet on Mobile | Wired Business | Wired.com

Final paragraph of a Steven Levy Apple WWDC keynote snapshot; also see Mac pioneer Andy Hertzfeld's take (and related discussion)
"Apple’s passionate embrace of the idea that Jobs outlined in 2009 puts it at a distinct advantage over its competition. Google is going through contortions to balance the mobile-desktop dichotomy embodied by its two operating systems, Android and Chrome.  And though Microsoft now understands the vital importance of mobile, its strategy still seems tilted toward desktop primacy — accommodating the future rather than hastening it. Apple, meanwhile, has boldly declared that mobile is the mothership. And those lumbering trucks are roadkill."
