    Anyone remember Tim Cook stating over the course of the next year Apple would be revealing new innovative products? He mentioned something along those lines during the New iPad unveiling, and also had similar language during the quarterly report.

    Any guesses what he's talking about?

    Surely it isn't just an AppleTV or new iPhone design. Just curious if anyone else caught those comments and what your thoughts are?

    I'd like to see an Apple smartwatch.

    What does everyone expect Apple to do with it's new iPhone 5? Kinda hard to come out with something revolutionary. A form factor change would be the biggest change and I am betting that is why they will do.

    Thinking the 5 will be slightly larger and a larger screen. This will make the one who want a larger screen happy and the one who do not want it larger . . . Well they will have to get over it.

    Or maybe they will keep it the same size and those wanting a larger screen can get over it ;)

    Are we talking about an actual television set here, or jus the Apple TV we already know? Because if we're talking about an actual television set from Apple, that would be HUGE.

    Secondarily, now that the mobile space is so congested, yet highly competitive everyone is dying to know what Apple has up it's sleeves.

    Lastly, I bet the Macs all get brand new redesigns. While I love my unibody MacBook Pro, the design is quite old, and is do for a change. Just my two cents.

    Well, if I were a betting man, I would put my money on a slightly larger device/screen. Apple will alienate it's users either way but I am betting they think that the true iPhone lovers would forgive them for making it a bit larger while the other users who could leave Apple would stay and might even gain some new users.

    Just my thoughts, but if I owned Apple, it would have the best advantages to me. Leaving the screen the way it is . . . well the future is to a bright.

    GO DAWGS!

    Spent 6 years in Athens, good feelings about my DAWGS and Athens. My parents sure spent a lot of their money on me while going to school there.

    Would an apple tv really be that huge? I buy a tv for picture quality first and foremost. Media features aren't that important to me since I could always get a box with some features.

    Cable content is almost always through a cable box too, so it's not like you'd be able to use the "amazing" apple interface for the majority of your viewing.

    I'm in two minds about whether Tim Cook's comment was just a throwaway remark to keep the shareholders happy or something more significant.

    Obviously an actual TV would be good if they can get it all right. The iPhone is the other possibility - despite it's initial problems, the iPhone 4 was still very innovative.

    I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what they have up their corporate sleeve...

    A stand alone television has been in the rumor department for quite some time. I'm just curious what everyone thought about Tim Cook's comments. Does anyone think an entirely new consumer product is coming this year? That's what I got from his comments...if so, what would it be?

    Someone mentioned a watch. If it has Siri incorporated, that would be cool. You could set appointments, ect. without pulling out your phone. Imagine speaking to your wrist ("beam me up Scottie")!

    Seing what Apple has done for Music, Media, Phones, and now tablet/personal computing. Yes an Apple branded television would be huge.

    There has been talk that Apple will come out with a Gaming Device/Console that will be integrated into a TV, which sounds...expensive and useless. It will be interesting to see what happens int he next few years as Jobs' influence slowly wears off the company.

    Hm. Good question. iPhone 5 is surely a certainty with a new design. The iPanel is going to be very special I think but with a huge price tag! New MacBook Air's and Pro's later this year too. I can't see Apple unveiling a new product (apart from the iPanel) because the products they currently have on the market are doing extremely well.

    If Apple could fix the mess of cords and cables behind my TV I'd buy a new TV from them in a heartbeat. But it would need to be something very innovative and sleek. I'd love to see a TV and home theater system from them controlled by Siri. :cool:

    You make it sound as if all ideas and innovation came from Steve. I doubt that's the case. Sure he had the final say over everything but he wasn't the only creative mind at Apple.

    Well since apple is known for its brilliant displays, I'm quite sure if they released a TV, the display would be extraordinary. And yes, that would be HUGE!

    Yeah that would be cool, probably evolve the nano into that, especially if they bring out the TV, the wrist device could bring together that 'Halo' effect by getting all the notifications, and maybe the device can control all the devices around you, sorta like a mini control device.
