Honda And Apple

Apple rather reminds of Honda Motors.

Both have marched to a different drummer from their peers and been maligned for doing so.

Both are jealously disdained and feared by their competition for being good at what they do.

Both are doing better than their peers in the current economic storm.


Honda has now hurdled well past the charismatic-founder-retiring-and-leaving-someone-else-in-charge stage.

Apple, on the other hand, fell into the charismatic-founder-retiring-and-leaving-someone-else-in-charge jinx.

It remains to be seen if Apple can find someone to succeed Jobs.
