    I don't think that's actually "forward", though.

    The thing about disruptive innovation is that the disruptive technologies eventually meet or exceed the capacities of the things they disrupted. And that is totally a thing that can sometimes happen.

    But you have to actually get those capabilities. You can't just remove all the capabilities and call it "disruptive innovation".

    Making a computer which can do things no computer has previously done is one way of challenging our notion of what a computer can do. Apple's gone for Door #2, which is "make a computer that can't do a thing that every computer before it could do". And that is also, in a way, challenging our notion of what a computer can do. :p
