Apple tech winner and loser in 2005

PC World has created a list of the tech winners and losers of 2005. Apple made the list 3 times. How is that possible you ask? Well, Apple Computer (remember they still make computers!) was listed as both a winner and a loser.

Apple was a winner thanks to%uFFFD the Mac mini, the new iPod, and Intel inside. However, Apple found itself on the loser list because of the various lawsuits against rumor sites. However, I doubt many people even remember those (other than the folks directly involved in the suits) so I think that is a bit of a stretch.

That's only two mentions, the third comes in the form a iTunes which is listed on the winning side because of the new video content, holding fast to pricing, and making buying digital music with DRM cool again.
