With the team that he has at Apple, any good CEO will be able to continue the success of Apple... and that includes tim cook imo.What do you guys think of his performance until now? Will he be able to continue Apple's success?
Agreed. That'd be sweet (3840x2400)I want a 16:10 4k display so bad I'd even buy an iMac to have it.
Until it melted on your desk...I would bring Apple to it's highest revenue year ever with the release of the xeon 8-core mac mini with 32GB ram and GTX 980M. Bloggers and tech sites would hail me a hero.
Stand alone spinners should NEVER be allowed in a Mac again.Apple Watch would be updated with same external hardware design.
Macbook Air discontinued. Macbook 12" improved internals and rose gold option.
Desktop Macs 7200rpm 3.5" minimum.
New iPad Mini with Pencil support. Mini 4 continues as is. Mini 2 gone.
iOS mouse/trackpad support.
All iPads truetone display.
Fusion drives more SSD space.
17" screen options for Macbook Pro.
Mac Mini quad core and server options resumed.
Updated Mac Pro.
Redesigned iMacs and Cinema Displays.
Apple TV 4K software update if possible. Remote for games no longer required.
iPhone 7 to look like thin and broad SE.
I could go on.
I'm so glad my shares are in tims hands[Sorry mods, not sure where to post this thread; please move if necessary]
Is it just me, or do others also need to check comparison tables to actually know/understand the difference between all Apple's products? What happened to the inherit simplicity when making buying decisions at Apple?
It feels like Apple is trying to hit too many price points and in the process are creating a convoluted and confusing product lineup that is best explained through Excel.
So, with that in mind, if Tim was sacked - and you were hired - what would your Dec 2016 line up look like?
MacBook 12", MacBook 14"
MacBook Pro 14", MacBook Pro 16"
Mac mini (= 14" MBP)
Mac mini (= base 16" MBP)
(no gimped 'entry' model, all SSD or Fusion as standard, dual SSD option)
(no gimped 'entry model', tiny bezels, 16:10 ratio, all retina, all SSD or Fusion as standard)
Mac Pro 2 x CPU model
Mac Pro 2 x GPU model
iPad Pro 12"
iPad Air 9.7"
iPad mini 7.9"
(no old models hanging around, names based on year made)
Apple Watch 2.0
Apple TV 4(k edition)
I'm glad here's there, but perhaps not as the one steering the overall product vision. Jony needs a strong voice to challenge his anorexic designs."Psst...Tim. What do you think I should do?"
I'd probably try and figure out the landscape for VR (perhaps gaming falls in line with this), consider options competing/cooperating with Tesla. Automate more of the production line for products and consider media production and distribution as related to Apple TV (part of this is taken care of with Disney). In addition, a streaming service (no additional cost/menial add-on fee if you subscribe to Apple Music) to compete with Netflix.
Emotionally, I like the idea of selling iPods again but it would take away retail space and customer attention from more relevant products that would actually sell.
Part of me feels dirty too because it feels like I want to destroy everyone in Silicon Valley. I wouldn't take that approach. I'm a fan of what Zuckerberg is doing, I'd value partnerships more than competition.
Aren't you guys glad Tim's there?
