Yeah, that surprised me, too. iPad sells more than the Mac, so there’s that, but nothing close to the iPhone. Jason Perlow:
Does this mean the Mac and the iPad are going to merge at some point? No, but it does mean the two operating systems are approaching a single development target, which is significant.
He’s talking about a shared codebase and applications.
Why is that important? Because, if using an iPad for work becomes no less painful or functional to using a Mac for the same tasks, then it makes it much easier to migrate the bulk of Apple’s Mac user base to iPad sometime in the future.
Sure, Apple wants 100-million Mac customers to migrate to the iPad (over 200-million customers) where prices are half the Mac?
Dumb. Apple wants us to buy everything.
