More Apple Software and Marketshare
This Dow Jones Newswire story reports on Apple's Financial Officer, Fred Anderson, speaking at the Goldman Sachs Technology Symposium. Anderson reportedly stated that a "good intermediate goal" was to reach a 5% marketshare (from 3%).
Beyond this, Anderson hints at future products
- Users of Macintosh machines from Apple also are "going to see more and more software coming out of Apple," Mr. Anderson said.
Apple has been aggressively introducing new software over the past few years, expanding its library with both iApps and Professional Apps. The latest additions have been to both internet and office areas with Safari and Keynote.
There have been some unsubstantiated hints of more Apple software acquisitions - which have yet to find serious confirmation. Meanwhile, a number of software updates appear to be in line for April releases... with hints of iTunes, Final Cut Pro 4 and possibly Appleworks.
