Apple stock flat after big dive

It is interesting to watch huge companies as they diversify and wander into unfamiliar territory.

Yes, Apple has managed to hold tight-fisted control over the iTunes ecosystem, including storage, but its foray into iCloud is beginning to look as if it is stretching its core competency - Hardware.

The best big-business model to use as a comparison is Amazon.  The online retailer depends upon a very sophistocated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system run its eStore.  And the natural development and successful operation the Amazon S3 Cloud systems is a perfect fit for Amazon.

But Apple and iCloud?

It makes me wonder.  A lot.
