The difference is that imac would actually be able to put its recommendations into practice.
Its imac and MacBook personal computers are gaining market share.
The first products that Ive designed under Jobs were the “Bondi Blue” imac and the somewhat ugly iBook.
Once the president signs off on imac's recommendations, they'd go into effect unless Congress voted to stop them.
And if Congress does indeed vote to stymie imac, the president could then veto Congress.
My household of four people has an imac, and Macbook, three iPhones, two iPads, and an iPod.
That basically means that Congress would need a two-thirds supermajority to resist the awesome power of imac.
