Dave at MobileCrunch dug up an interesting comment by his Steve-ness about the iPhone being the third leg in the Apple chair, next to iPod and Mac. During the internal Jobs-note, however, an employee asked if the iPhone would cannibalize the iPod, to which Jobs responded that he’d rather see Apple cannibalize it’s own gear rather than someone else.
So, as Dave points out, that chair is going to have only two legs, if all goes according plan. The resulting chair, it seems, will really suck. Man. These metaphors are trippy.
