Given that Apple is the richest company in the world, their absence is
either strategic or indicates disdain.
Apple's entire focus is on just three mobile products (iPhone, iPad,
iPod) and the portal which feeds them. These three mobile products
are responsible for perhaps 90% of the corporate value.
Apple only offers a single computer (Mac Pro, based on outdated
hardware) which is really capable of supporting the needs of
postproduction and they no longer offer a RAID storage product. On
the Apple web site, all of Apple's apps (including for video) are
shown running on laptops. With the extreme focus on mobile is the
Apple creative power-user at risk?
