Since the late 1980s,Wal-Mart-like channel that controls access to my audience and dictates what is and is not acceptable material for me to create. Its not a crazy feargiven that some industry analysts think Apple wants to become the Internets cable TV company turning its iMachines into the dominant distributors of printvideo and audio Stillits an unwarranted fear The nature of the digital landscape makes it hard to be both a control freak and a global hegemon And Jobss history suggests that hell choose control over power Rewind the tape to that 1984 ad It heralded the coming of the Macintosh operating systemwhich was head and shoulders above anything Microsoft was offering So why did Microsoft wind up dominating the operating system market Because Jobs chose not to do what Microsoft did: license his operating system to computer makers If you wanted Apple softwareyou had to buy Apple hardware Maybe Jobs is just intent on building the perfect product The Microsoft approach harnessed positive feedback The more models of Windows computerscompetitively pricedthe more people would buy Windows computers And the more Windows computers people boughtthe more programmers would write their software for Windowsnot Apple And the more Windows software there wasthe more attractive Windows computers would be And so on Thats how Windows wound up with around 90 per cent of the desktop operating system market With the iPhoneJobs is again foregoing this positive feedback Hes not licensing the operating system to other handset makers Theres only one kind of iPhone love it or leave it MeanwhileGoogle is following a variant of the Microsoft strategy Its backing the Android operating systemwhich any handset maker is free to use And lots of them are using it All of this explains why some tech observers think that Applenotwithstanding its stunning iPod-iTunes-iPhone-iPad-based comebackis approaching its peak Why is Jobs choosing the same path thatlast time aroundkept him from conquering the world I had puzzled over this for months until I had a conversation with tech-watcher Harry McCrackenwho suggested a theory that seemed outlandish at first but is making more and more sense to me: Steve Jobs just isnt bent on world domination I meansureall other things being equalhe might love to rule the world So would I But there are things he wont sacrifice for that goal One is the high profit margins you get from being the only company that sells the hardware linked to a good operating system But I think theres something else at worktooand its kind of admirable If you ask Jobs why he wont let other companies build hardware for the iPhone operating systemhell say something to the effect that you get a smoother productwith fewer glitchesif one company designs both the hardware and the software Thats truebut it was true in the computer market as welland Jobss smoother products confined Apple not just to a fraction of Microsofts market share but to a fraction of its market capitalisation; his high profit margins didnt make up for low sales So whats the rationale for repeating this exercise Maybe theres no rationale that makes sense in dollars and cents Maybe Jobs is just intent on building the perfect product Yeshe wants to make moneybutbeyond a certain pointhell trade off money for perfection I say this as someone who doesnt share his vision of perfection In the various things I dont like about Apple productsthe unifying theme is the subordination of functional elegance to visual elegance For example: The iPhone looks real sleek with that curvy metalbut it sure is easy to drop on a screen-shattering slab of sidewalk In generalI admitApples functional elegance is impressive Indeedits a tribute to Jobs that when the functionality falls shortits almost always the result of a conscious decision to favor aesthetics whereas design flaws in Microsoft products often reflect a failure of engineers to put themselves in the shoes of users Maybe Jobs is basically just an artist Maybe he wants above all to create products that are beautiful And he succeedseven if it costs him market shareand even if he doesnt handle the trade-offs between functional and visual beauty as I would Some would say calling Jobs an artist is just a euphemistic way of calling him a control freak And certainly an artistic temperament is a fussy temperament Stillbeing this kind of control freak is different from being the kind of control freak who wants to amass as much power as possible over information flow and then use it to stifle expression That kind of control freak would follow the Microsoft strategy to maximise market share and thus maximise the number of machines whose apps menu he could then satanically control Of coursemaybe Jobs isnt an artist at heartand maybe he isnt deeply driven to create the perfect product Maybe he just thinks having a small market share but high profit margins is the way to make the most money and his finicky design aesthetic is a byproduct of this strategy In either eventthe world is safe from him Apples information pipeline wont be the only oneand it wont be the biggest one Whether for temperamental or strategic reasonsJobs is too intent on control to wind up in a position to control us For all the latest Opinion News

a leader Mahendra Singh Dhoni was also a saviour for his successor Virat Kohli who revealed that the talismanic former skipper prevented his ouster from the Indian team many a times Kohli has played his entire international cricket under Dhoni’s captaincy since his ODI debut in Sri Lanka back in 2008 In his initial days both in ODIs and Tests Kohli didn’t show consistency and his place wasn’t secure but Dhoni had immense faith in his talent and abilities “He (Dhoni) will always be the person who guided me initially and gave me opportunities He gave me ample time and space to grow as a

2009it was believed that the party would be a force to reckon with for a long time But YSRs death in a helicopter crash in September 2009 dramatically changed the states political environment In less than two yearsthe Congress seems to have lost its hold on the politics of the region and thatin turnis leading to new developments that are redefining electoral equations The YSR Congressa splinter group from the Congresswas formed by YSRs disgruntled son Jaganmohan Reddy Then the newly formed Praja Rajyam Party by actor Chiranjeevi merged with the Congress There has also been the revival of the struggle for a separate state of Telangana that YSR had managed to contain when he was at the helm The demand for Telangana created a new political phenomenon: of politicians expressing allegiance to their region as against their party In Andhra Pradesh nowthe region you belong to is more important than the party or ideology you represent In order to survive politically and get the mandate of the electoratelegislators across parties are compelled to indicate that they would preserve the interests of the region they come fromeven in defiance of party diktats This conflict between loyalty to the region and to the party is further complicated by the loosening of the grip of national leadership over regional leaders and local dynamics This was evident in the recent crisis in Karnataka as well where the central leadership of the BJP had little or no say in the way BS Yeddyurappa made his exit as CM or in the way his successor was chosen This weakening hold of national leadership is a reversal of the political process introduced by Indira Gandhiwho had a direct connect with the electorate and who undermined local leadership with her interference in state politics State-level leaders often emerge from a reworking of caste equations and by imagining policies that are popular with the electorate In Andhra PradeshYSR had rolled out a large number of welfare policies for the poorincluding free housingsubsidised rice and special transport facilities in rural areas for farmers to take their produce to the market These appealed to various sections of the electorate It is this legacy of YSR that Jagan is attempting to appropriate He has emerged as a forceand this should be seen in the context of a debilitated Congress The resignation letters submitted by its legislators from the Telangana region had weakened the party Now27 more MLAs have submitted their resignations to the speaker and they are set to join Jagans YSR Congress The Congressin order to stop Jagans surgefound a way forward by discrediting the legacy and image of YSR after the CBI filed an FIR against the former chief minister in an ongoing investigation into the allegation that his family has amassed assets disproportionate to known sources of income Thisthe Congress believeswill also strengthen its claim of fighting corruption But the legislators bid to join Jagan has complicated the survival of political parties Jagans hold over the electorate is restricted to Rayalaseema and the Andhra region In factwhen he attempted to take out his Odarpu Yatra into Telanganahis entourage was attacked by students In order to counter Jagans popularity in the Andhra regionthe Congress carried out negotiations with Chiranjeeviwhich fructified in the Praja Rajyam Partywhich managed to get 27 per cent of votes in the last assembly electionsmerging with the Congress on the eve of Rajiv Gandhis birth anniversary The alliance might give some comfort to the Congress But Telangana is a more complicated case In spite of its silence on the issue of Telanganathe Telugu Desam Party still retains formidable support from backward castes The electoral conflict in the Telangana region is now primarily between the TDP and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS)with little prospects for the Congressgiven the way it handled the demand for a separate state The TDP is already making noises about introducing a no-trust motion in the assembly and N Chandrababu Naiduin the backdrop of the investigations against Jaganis on anti-corruption mode and planning even to go on a hunger strike in support
