Apple Moving to Redmond?

Last time I checked, Apple was still based in Cupertino. But one blogger thinks the company could just as easily be headquartered a bit farther north, in Redmond, Wash.

How's that? No, it's not the monopoly it enjoys (as one Redmond Report reader recently pointed out, nearly 100 percent of Macintosh computers run an Apple operating system). Instead, Victor Godinez points to flaky, new operating systems such as the one driving the latest iPhone, and bundling software such as tying Safari to iTunes.

Neither Microsoft nor Apple are perfect, but they're two of the most interesting companies in the world to watch.
