I think that Apple is going into to many fields at once, which is
a really bad idea.

It may end up being something where the company is forced
to be turned into seperate companies because thgey are so

Apple large?? Apple holds about 3% of the computer market. Sure Apple is a great design company but they are no where near the size of MicroWeenie. Just because Gates cant design a good MP3 player doesn't mean Apple will be in danger of being broken up. The microsoft Zune is crap and no one is buying them. Cell phone companies have had a long time to get it right and just because Apple shows everyone a better way, there is no reason to worry about Apple getting into too many areas.

Superior design is a good thing as it moves the market forward. I am glad Apple is stepping out and giving us more and better options.

I mean large, as being the dominant company in many markets,
as they now have shown to all but have a complete stranglehold
on the digital music player market.

Unlike Microsoft who uses the power of Monopoly and illegal trade practices to stifle competition, Apple does well because it simply makes better products. If the Zune wasn't such a miserable design it could have done a bit better.

Apple is now pushing the cell phone makers to newer heights. Nokia, which makes superb cell phones, will have to step up to the plate and also improve its design capabilities. If Apple manages to capture significant market share due to its design, that only means there was a desire for it... a need that was not being fulfilled by others.

Apple TV is just an extension of this design philosophy. People want to watch, what they want, when they want, and offering a new way to access content is only a good thing. I don't see iTV being huge just yet, but it will spur development in home entertainment from manufacturers across the board.

Apple has a long history of innovative design that leads the markets to new areas. That being said, Apple is still a small player in comparison to Microsoft. Branching into new arenas is not in and of itself a reason to worry about any future need to break up the company.

Edited to add: You should note, that Apple did not go entirely alone when it came to the iPhone. Apple worked with Google, youtube, and Cingular, in desiging the iPhone. Their new product all ready plays well with others and is not monopolizing the market.
