Forbes magazine online gives a glowing report on Apple's current state.
One paragraph, however, scolds it for lacking a handheld device: "Before
Apple drifts into self-aggrandizing bravura, though, more work needs to
be done if
                                     it wants to bolster sales--$6.13
billion in fiscal 1999--and become a contender in the $40
                                     billion corporate-computing market.
For starters, it needs to fill a gaping hole in software.
                                     Mac OS X could be a start, but it
will need to attract software developers, who abandoned
                                     the company during its hard times.
The personal computer pioneer also sorely lacks a
                                     handheld device--an area in which
it at one time was a trendsetter, with the doomed
                                     Newton MessagePad. "
