    I honestly can't think of anything.

    Ipod
    Iphone
    Ipad


    The iphone not so much now, I think Android has a slighty bigger market, but Ipod and Ipad absolutly crush the competition, I mean its not even somewhat close. Ipad has a 66.8% market share, with android coming in 2nd at 28.2%

    TV rumors have been floating around a while, but I can't see people rushing out to buy new TVS....

    Well the next plausible thing people seem to think is Television, personally I can't see that happening.

    I think we will eventually see an Apple TV, however think it's 5 years away at least.

    Can't see cars or cameras really.

    A lot of us want Apple to do a smartwatch.

    (One that's not locked to an iPhone.)

    Doesn't matter who provides the programming or the pipeline... it's not a charity and it's never going to be one.

    After televisions, the next logical move would be appliances (Refridgerators, ovens, robotic vaccums/cleaning devices). After that, I would say vehicles (cars, planes, spaceships). Even further after that, I could see cybernetic implants/limbs.

    In the distant future, I can easily imagine Apple Androids walking around and interacting/serving us.

    There are countless areas for Apple to revolutionize. Many that we can't even imagine right now.

    I dream about the build up of a truly global network; get rid of AT&T, Verizon, Telekom, SoftBank etc.

    A consistent business model where ever you are. And where they can't build themselves at least ensure the same experience with locals.

    No discussion around Cellular FaceTime, Teathering for all, ...

    Ah, and cleanup the mess with our music and film industry. I want too see any content everywhere on this little planet; can't be soo difficult.

    Both would be real revolutions shaking up existing structures.

    iCar ? Don't think so.

    The living room. I can definitely see them going all out in the TV and even Gaming Console business. Wether it will be by means of Apple making an actual TV or powering up the AppleTV, that remains to be seen.

    i think the TV is next. i think we might also see a high end camera. Steve did say he wanted to revolutionize photography. im sure there are mockups of an iOS powered DSLR floating around Apple HQ. i would be interested to see an Apple network to power the iPhone. it would cost a ton to maintain but i would like to see what they would do.

    I would love to see a good camera with a built in wireless contract that will sync you photos to 'the cloud' (preferably Skydrive for me though since I dont use iCloud).

    Problem is that they consider the iPhone to be that tool I think so it's unlikely.

    We know they want the television market though

    That's possible, specially considering that Nikon is making a new Coolpix camera powered by Android. Maybe Apple will end up doing something like that by building their own camera. Don't see this a as a priority for Apple right now tho.

    i think your right...definitely not a priority. its probably not a huge market like the iphone but everyone knows the 4S takes great photos and i think if they can make a iOS DSLR camera for between $500-$1000 they will have quite a few customers. i think it can integrate nicely with their current products

    The biggest question, is Apple capable of making a camera as good as Nikon and Canon? These companies have been at it for decades, And, Apple likes to make massive profit margins, so the quality of the camera itself would most likely be something like a high end point and shoot.

    I hope it never happens, because then there would be even more retards on Instagram who use a couple of affects buttons and then say they're professional photographers.

    If Apple did make a camera, I could see some people buy it. But a professional photographer most likely wouldn't touch it ( My Current GF is a professional photographer, some of her Nikons are wroth 5 grand +, the pictures they take are ****ing incredible )
