If Simplicity Sells, Why Didn’t Macs?

February 17, 2012

John Gruber on Apple selling more iOS devices in the last year than Macs in the last 28 years:

It’s getting harder and harder to put iOS’s success in perspective. The lesson: simplicity sells.”

It makes me wonder why so many people declined to buy Macs compared to Microsoft OS based PCs. Macs have always been simpler than any version of Windows.

It’s true that iOS is simpler than Android or other mobile operating systems but there must be some other magic behind the success of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that no one else has been able to match thus far.
