In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh this week, a few members of Apples executive team granted a rare, albeit brief interview to Macworld. Marketing boss Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi — best known for his work on OS X and iOS — reflected on the last 30 years of Mac and how the iPhone rejuvenated Apples computing business, but also about the oft-questioned future of the Mac. Many pundits have called for the convergence of iOS and OS X into one common operating system, and even for the death of the Mac, but Schiller wont have it. Theres a role for the Mac as far as our eye can see. He admitted that Apple merged certain elements of iOS and OS X (like the Calendar and Contacts apps) in order to not confuse users, but emphasized that different devices will always be better for different scenarios.
