re: Why Apple Will Never Equal Sony
Disagreeing here, Microsoft is mainly a software company. The only piece of hardware that Microsoft sells well is the Xbox. Apple is predominantly a vendor of consumer products, they even dropped "Computer" from their company name. In that regards I find the comparison to Sony valid to some extent. The difference, and that may be key here, is that Apple has its own operating system to use. Sony does not have that.

re: Why Apple Will Never Equal Sony
True, Forrester's comparison of Apple to Sony does not make sense for the reasons you mentioned. Platform vs. no platform, diversified product line vs. streamlined.... Apple = operating system ecosystem company. Sony = hardware company. Microsoft is much more applicable than Sony.
