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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
