I wouldn't say Apple has a looser mentality.

However the basis of their success is tenuous. At first it was the superiority of their transition to UNIX. Then their embrace of the mini-hard drive, then the phone and iOS. They did have better usabilty but its always been almost an after thought to them while "elegance" has always been what they thought was their advantage.

Now though everyone else has caught up except on security. That's keeping them alive. I suspect Google will solve that problem using AI.

I personally think they missed their chance to capture a much larger part of the computer market, due to greed and tunnel vision on iPhones.
