So what magic does Apple have up its sleeve? A new 128 gig iPad for $800?

A New/old iPhone that’s smaller than the current iPhone? A new iPhone that’s bigger than the current iPhone?

New/old iPods, but now they come in different colors? A 7 inch iPad2 for nearly the same price as the original iPad2? A new iPad almost exactly the same as the old new iPad except it’s a little faster?

Let’s talk about computers. The whole MacBook Pro line is going to move to 100% non-user replaceable parts. Battery just died on your Retina display Mac? Apple will fix it for $1800. Want to add more memory or swap out the SSD? You can’t.

Mac Pros? Dead. That leaves the iMac and Mac mini as the last two Apple PCs that a user can modify, although just slightly.

So where’s all the Apple innovation that people used to pay dearly for? I know their margins are astronomical, but how do you grow the business when you’ve run out of ideas?

That, and the Dutch tulips too. I do not understand how the tulip market crashed overnight and never fully recovered.

Do you really think Apple has run out of ideas? You are extremely gullible if so. One area to watch - the Apple TV. The biggest problem with Apple critics is that they seem to think that because they can’t think of any more innovative product ideas, neither can Apple.
