  1. After Apple finally officially announced its $3 billion acquisition of Beats, the company's media chief Eddy Cue said the roadmap for upcoming products is the best he has seen in a longtime from Apple. Appearing on stage with Beats co-founder...

    I question Apple's reasoning for pouring 3 billion into a fashion company - that's all Beats is, nothing more.

    And when Mr. Cue is trying to hype up the public over new products, any attempt linking it to the recent acquisition is a delusion.

    But that's not all it is, Apple does have many good products.

    But Apple is a fashion company. Don't they employ full time, well known fashion designers that nobody's ever heard of? I distinctly remember a post on this site that Apple recently employed some fashion designer chick to do who knows what and I also remember her making a statement that she was super excited to be working for/with Apple, a statement she was probably paid to say, but they all have to say that because that too is probably in their contract.
     
  10. "I am always curious to wonder why people think that. No one sees your phone. Its in your pocket 99.5% of the day. What makes you believe its a fashion company?"

    My experience is that at least the younger folks always have there phones out in the open. They are usually talking, texting, etc. during most of their waking hours.

    I wasn't aware fashion companies offered music streaming services.

    Guess you learn something new everyday.

    Speaking of fashion in that picture above I'm going to set my hopes on the new device being the iShirtButtoner.

    Do you work for Apple. Feel sorry for you.

    I don't work for Apple. I'm just a happy user of their products. Keep your sympathies to yourself ;)
     
  18. "we have out most exciting products coming THIS year, please believe us as we are quietly pooing in our pants about the rise of Android and Windows Phone. We have been the Spoilt Brats of the phone world and we want more money waaaaah waaaah"

    Just one look at the expressions on these guys faces gives away how nervous they are.

    Perhaps they are most concerned about losing the 'hypnosis' factor they have had on easily-lead consumers for the last years.

    I look forward to an Apple free world....it's coming to a town near you.

    Larger screen for the iPhone.

    I GUARANTEE IT.

    Maybe a set of desktop speakers. Certainly nothing of interest. When have Apple EVER said "we're releasing something so cool and superawesome COME SEE US SHOW IT," before an event? Methinks it'll be mediocre, and they are just trying to big it up.

    One thing is certain the shape of the iPhone will never change. all they need to do is change a little feature like turning the white keyboard black and apple lovers will throw their money at them before its even released.

    It is a funny old world...
     
  21. Yeah: Is it better than the competition?

    Like, as if he is going to say that it is the worse "product pipeline".

    What is a "product pipeline" anyway? It seems a bit grey-print to me. A statement made with "designed ambiguity". Who buys a "product pipeline"?

  22. It is better than the one that they had 25 years ago.

    No doubt their amazing line up with be evolutionary/revolutionary or some other term claiming it's changing the game when in fact it will mostly be "slightly shinier to attract the Apple magpies".
     
  24. Presumably all your future products are better than all your older products. Apples 2023 product pipeline should be way better than 2014

    This is a turntable sold by "Bang & Olufsen".....
    [​IMG]
    It, like all of their other products, has decent, but not spectacular specifications. But, with its over the top Scandinavian modern styling and pure snob appeal, their products sold for outrageous dollar amounts. The company even had single brand outlets in high end malls across the country, as well as mixed brand representation in upper tier audio salons.The company predates Apple by decades.

    And yet, B & O marketing strategy translates directly to the paradigm of the modern day Apple.

    So, to recap, Apple is the B & O of the computer industry. While "Beats", is the B & O of the ghetto. Straight up, yo!

    So, it should be patently obvious, that Apple not only wants to harvest the cash of the yuppie set, but the inner city head bangers drug sales money as well.

    As for "Beats", it's overpriced nonsense, but it gets snapped up like pairs of $200.00 signature sneakers, and it's targeted at the same "demographic".
