Apple is wrecking any other company in the industry. $18B quarter earnings with a goldmine in sight is the sign of business genius. Most everything they come out with translates into money raining down from the sky.

So yes, they're really a genius. Ballmer was incompetent, but Apple is a powerhouse in the tech industry.

I think aging is a more easily solvable problem. 3D printed organs using your own DNA could replace sick ones. We can sequence out your DNA when you're young as a master copy and then constantly revert your body to it using viral vectors and introduction through stem cells.

I'd imagine the only real problem we're going to have is with maintaining the brain.
