Platform innovation vs. app innovation

The value I derive from my iPhone is from its apps (and the camera in my 4s). It's most important to me that Apple provide a capable platform and robust support for the developer ecosystem, which is where the real innovation happens. The hardware and OS vendor can - and should - only do so much. Apple's innovation should be focused on enabling swarms of developers and giving them what they need to take the platform to new heights.

I doubt they'll shift their business model and focus on open source, but I agree that the App Store is a good thing

It's because they work, well, and the aura of having an iPhone...
