Tim Cook Promises new Product Category This Year Again

Tim Cook promises exciting new products last year and we only got updates. We got the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C (slow seller), iPad Air,iPad mini Retina, Mac Pro and more Mac updates. Nothing entirely new. Most early new product rumors in 2013 have been focused on the iWatch. Will it come this year? Do not hold your breath.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Tim Cook said that "There will be new categories. We're not ready to talk about it, but we're working on some really great stuff," Mr. Cook said. He did not go into detailed when asked if these new categories mean improvements to existing products or something new.

I have a feeling that the iWatch is still not ready in 2014. Apple got a bit quite on the TV front. I think there is where they are expected to release the next major new thing.

The markets are not impressed with Apple since the last earnings announcement. Apple used the drop in stock value to purchase $14 billion of its own stock. This means Apple is still believing in itself big time and Tim Cook also thinks that Apple is still a growth company.

When it comes to Apple's future, there are two products people focus on — the iPad and the iPhone.  Combined, those products generate ~70% of Apple's sales, and they are leading the company into a "post-PC" world of mobile computing. So, when people see Android taking share in the smartphone and tablet markets, they get worried about Apple's future. After all, if people are buying Android gadgets, then they're not buying Apple gadgets.  And since Android's pric ...

Apple Poached Its Most Controversial Executive From Adobe, But Adobe Threw Him A Party Anyway (AAPL)

Source: Business Insider

Apple and Adobe had an acrimonious relationship a few years ago. In 2010, there was a great debate about whether or not Apple should bring Adobe's Flash, the software that powers many web videos and animations, to the iPhone. Apple wouldn't budge, saying Flash wasn't a good experience on mobile touchscreen devices and caused a huge drain on battery. Steve Jobs famously wrote a public statement on the issue called "Thoug ...

The iPhone's sapphire future comes into focus

This may be anathema for someone in the business of writing about tech to say, but I’m not all that interested in iPhone rumors. Shipping products are what grab my attention, not unicorns and phantasms. The minute Tim Cook holds up the new device is the minute it’s worthwhile to start examining features and specs, and all the speculation ahead of time is usually just the noise separating one Apple press event from the next. So why did I take notice of this week’s report in the Wall Stre ...

Ferguson Shows How “Tried” Is No Longer Enough

Source: Harvard Business Review

Think of the Chief of Police of Ferguson, Missouri not as a cop, but as a failed leader. To start, Chief Thomas Jackson no longer has jurisdiction over his city’s security; the Governor of Missouri has asked his state Highway Patrol captain Ronald S. Johnson to take over. This comes after a national outcry against the police response to protests in the aftermath of the shooting on Saturday of 18-year-old Michael Brown. He failed, and his boss just replaced him. Not surprising. And frankl ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
