What's next for Apple?

December 26, 2012

To say I'm a big fan of Apple is an understatement. I have owned a Mac ever since the first one came out in 1984. 

I remember the PowerPC processor, the G3 processor and I miss the Motorola chip that Macs used to have.

I have an iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and all the accessories that go with those products.  I owned Apple products when Apple wasn't cool to have and Mac software was scarce. 

I take great delight in seeing Apple beating all the other computer makes in the industry now.

The iPhone was revolutionary but Apple is losing the battle against Andriod phones because Andriod phones are cheaper to buy.

Should Apple make a cheaper iPhone to compete?

One blogger on cultofmac.com doesn't think so.  He thinks that Apple should be more exclusive and more expensive. 

He recommends that Apple find a way to make satellite phone technology work better and offer iPhone satelllite phones to those who are not in cell phone areas. He believes there is a true market for this phone and that Apple could charge as much as $800 a phone.

Do you think this blogger is right?  Should Apple figure out the satellite phone industry and conquer it?

Should Apple just find a way to make their phones cheaper?

I am looking forward to the next launch from Apple but I really have no idea what's next.

What do you think is next for Apple?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
