i think apple needs to take some risks and proper ones unlike the 5c i like apple products just not their phones i think they need to step up innovation, the touch id (altought not completely original) was a step in the right direction same with the 64bit soc and powervr graphics. they're gonna be getting better if they take risks like google

One of apple's biggest problems lays with them thinking that they should be the only ones in the mobile game. Competition is good and drives innovation. For example: they complained about others (Google) using pinch to zoom which requires 2 fingers. What did Google end up doing to get around this problem in their maps app? Now we only need to double tap and slide with 1 finger to zoom and spin. Now zooming on Google maps is a one handed operation - brilliant.

this i agree,although i don't see a real need for innovate for sake of innovate,especially bloatware.

Cook needs the jedii on his team. I'd create the iJed, 48 gigs of ram, 6.4 in. screen, 3056/2785p resolution, 26 ghz 100 core processor, 90 meg camera, 1,000,347 mili amp battery, running iodroip8bian and Sniggly can't have one.

And it'll have one hour of battery life. Innovation to the max. :-P

It'll run on the force, and last forever.

Meh, I'd rather see Yoda on his team.
12. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
I don't want one. It doesn't have Touchless Control or Active notifications. :P

Why would anyone want the super duper iJed with a super duper horrible battery life? :P

*shrugs* Don't look at me. I couldn't tell you.

Walter's right Google is doing pretty much anything from mobile software, hardware, autonomous vehicles, floating barges, chrome OS, chromebooks, chromecast, internet blimps and drones, mapping, robots and tons of services to say the least. So, it would be stupid not say Google is not being innovative

Ppl mention Apple and innovation alot....but they are basically a computer software company that dabbles in hardware.And its all tied into Apple's world.
Google's stuff is global.
I would argue Samsung and probably Sony are also more innovative than Apple.

Wow. I had no idea only needed to double tap and slide with 1 finger to zoom. I always pinch zoomed. I guess this might be useful if I have only one hand.

Sometimes it is only convenient for me to use one hand with my phone.

Apple doesn't lack innovation, what they lack is the ability to change and adapt for the long term. They'll release a product, it'll be popular, then the competition catches up and surpasses them because of Apple's stubborn refusal to change, instead selling their products on having a better "experience" and use buzzwords like "retina display" and things like that. Then Apple will come out with a new product that will change things and the cycle starts anew.
Apple believes that people should use their products as Apple dictates. While the competitors believe that the consumer should use the product in the way they want. Steve Jobs was really good at reinventing the wheel and building better mousetraps, look at the iPhone and iPad and iPod, we had touch screen phones, tablets and MP3 players before those, but they weren't popular or as functional.
Tim Cook knows how to run a company but he doesn't have that ability to reinvent something. Tim Cook would look at a window blinds as is and ask how they can sell a lot of them very quickly. Steve Jobs would look at window blinds and ask how they could wirelessly stream movies.

Yea...I can agree with this. Apple used to be the market leaders in features and whatnot....now they are playing catch up.
Its like the world was waiting for someone to take a risk for mobile phones (orig iPhone) After seeing it not flop and actually dominate for a few years....everybody else was like whew....ok we can take chances now too.
I give credit to Apple for the orig iPhone and the iPhone 4...but thats about it.
