RIP Steve.

Your successor is driving Apple into the ground, unfortunately.

Stale designs, no courage to introduce better products, same old re-hashed design, same huge bezels, no audio jack... the list goes on.

All of the Apple's product lines experiences a dip in units sold this past quarter. I don't think the next quarter is gonna be good for them either.

Apple's a severe decline.

Let's revisit this in 5 years, shall we?

RIP Steve.

Your chosen successor is driving Apple into the future with greater market success than even you could've imagined, fortunately.

innovative designs, the courage to introduce better products, same old re-imaged design, thinner bezels, eschewing old port interfaces just as Jobs did... the list goes on.

Some of the Apple's product lines experiences a dip in units sold this past quarter because the economy is a fickle beast, but Apple's revenue, profits, marketshare, and mindshare still impress. I think the next year is gonna be great for them.

Apple is sublime.

What part of "keep it in your pants until you are ready to blow your load" don't you understand?

Apple is not your typical tech company that announces every crappy vaporware idea it gets. Project Ara anyone?

The flip-side of this is that idiots like John Dvorak wouldn't recognize an amazing game changing product if it hit them in the face. Granted, AirPods are so lightweight most people wouldn't notice if you flicked one in their face.

My point is that you are complaining about Apple not releasing any new "innovative" products right after they shipped AirPods!
You don't understand innovation.
The iPhone was not the first mobile phone.
It wasn't the first smartphone.
It wasn't even the first smartphone with a large touchscreen!(LG KE850)

The AirPods aren't the first Bluetooth headphones but guess what? Innovation isn't about being first. It is about being better.
AirPods are better in lots of ways that matter to normal people and that is why they will redefine the "headphone" category.

The iPhone came about because Steve focused on what's next. i.e. - What was after / could displace iPods? Phones that could play music and media.

What is after smartphones?

Virtual assistants that are tethered to your kitchen counter, obviously.

It was an amazing Keynote for an amazing product. It literally changed the world.
