Geez, thanks for not giving us that hot Pixar stock tip, Rohit.
Hmmm. What's at Apple that isn't hardware or software?
I guess there's Newton. That doesn't have much hardware in it. :)
Or Cocoa. That doesn't have much of anything. Apple Data Detectors.
V-Twin Information Access Toolkit. HotSace Meta Content Format.
OpenDoc. QuickDraw 3D. QuickTime Conferencing. Cyberdog.
Hmmm. I guess all of those have hardware and/or software in them.
So I suppose it's really true: Apple == NeXT.
Well, in an unrelated newstory...
