Apple is preparing "products that will blow your mind"

Apple is preparing
Apple is doing great in sales, and here great is an understatement, but at the same time some have voiced their worries that the company might lose its focus on innovation after Steve Jobs’ death. There’s no reason to think so - the company hasn’t yet had enough time to show us what it’s been working on since Jobs passed away, but Apple reassures you to not worry the least bit.

“You can be assured we are working as hard as ever this year to deliver an incredible year and some products that will blow your mind,” said Tim Cook at Apple’s shareholders meeting.

Oh yes, we know that the informative value of this statement is close to zero, just like “magical” is not a good description of a product for tech geeks. But it’s enough to underline that Apple is fully focused on the future, and that we should be looking forward to more than one mind-blowing product.

At the same time, Cook mused over the legacy of jobs and how it inspires him.

“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss him,” Cook said and extended his thanks to Apple fans. With the passing of time “great sadness turned into an intense determination to continue the journey because that’s what he would have wanted,” Cook added.

While the promise of mind-blowing new products was the most exciting news coming from the meeting, the chief executive of Apple also said Apple has more cash than it needs, and reiterated that the company has a friendly relationship with social networking giants Facebook and Twitter.

mind blowing products like the ipad 3 with a new processor and better display! Or a new 3.5" iphone with a better display, camera, and maybe lte if they really feel like blowing our minds!

Another day,another week,another month,another year,another Apples next phone is gonna be this.....and its gonna blow your mind that.......and it going to change everything again rumours. Nothing changes the Apple pr rumour mill has already started trying to get ifans into a mental buying frenzy conditioned state so they'll have no free choice other than buy the next apple product. The only thing it will blow is all their cash,and more than likely have few changes again

maybe they decided to redefine a flashlight this time... they made it with glass casing and a glowing apple logo... maybe it won't turn on in 1 of 3 times, but everyone will want to have it in their pocket... and of course, they wil sue everyone that tries to make another flashlight...

Yeah, and the current article author's IQ is close to zero. PS: By the way names are spelled with capital letter. Jobs, as Steve Jobs, not jobs.

If it ain't a iPhone that has an in built holographic projector, I doubt it will "blow my mind".

22. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

Ipad 3 with Retina display doesn't blow my mind away. a new iphone 5 just a inch taller with LTE same design still doesn't even blow my mind away. A new ipod nano same size but with a camera in the back still doesn't suprise me.

Apple does use high quality materials in all of the products it builds, but after 2 iPhones I'm moving on. I haven't had any problems with my iPhone 4 other then software, but with all the lawsuits they are focused on, it really affects the product in the end. iOS 5.0.1 has so many bugs, and they have not issued a fix, Mac OS X 10.7.3 also has a lot of bugs. But with so many brainwashed people they will continue to sell a crap load of products.

Only mind-blowing things apple has ever made are the pricetags on their products... overinflated, to say the least. If they're going to present new products that are mind blowing, they're either going to be reasonably priced (first time ever), or continue to be overpriced. Either way, I'll never buy them.

So what, they're going to find another way to sell us an iPod, which is the only product they make? iPad- big iPod iPhone - ipod that makes calls iMac - ipod that doubles as a seriously gimped PC with no GAEMS ipod - WAAAAAAYYY overpriced mp3 player, or an iphone that cant make calls iTV - LMFAO, a giant ipod that accepts a tv signal for 5x the pricee of a nprmal TV

Hmmm....key words, kids: iPhone 5 and iPad 3. iphone 5 and ipad 3 5 , 3 Is this the innovation they are talking about? Thats their biggest offering? a (SURPRISE!) ever so slightly tweaked iphone with 4G and a bigger screen (GJ playing catch up to 2010) that everyone knew was coming out, and a "new" (read:slightly improved ipad2) ipad? LOL
