Tom Peters Apple Prediction

I used to follow Guy Kawasaki in the early Mac days, and I recently noticed he has a new book out. I haven’t seen it, but the announcement prompted me to check out some of his older books from my local library. One was called Hindsights: The Wisdom and Breakthroughs of Remarkable People and contains interviews with successful people. Only a few of the interviews are very insightful; Mary Kay Ash was probably the best.

In spite of the book’s theme, Tom Peters decided to show off his foresight:

I can’t imagine a scenario where Apple is a leader twenty years from now. Maybe it will be ten times bigger … but setting the agenda? That’s an insane thought.

The book has a copyright date of 1993, so the interview must be from about twenty years ago.
