I read somewhere that Apple might be considering using the MIPS CPU architecture -- which IP, coincidentally, is owned by Imagination:http://www.imgtec.com/mips/This could be quite easily done with Apple's [porting to multiple CPU] experience and XCode development tools ... And Swift could handle it with a modification to it's compiler SIL Optimizer step:http://arstechnica.com/apple/2014/10/os-x-10-10/22/I suspect that this is already being tested in the labs!
Why?If people are still buying those devices at Apple's target profit -- why should Apple stop selling them?There are emerging markets where much of the population cannot afford the latest Apple devices ... but they can afford an older Apple device which offers superior results and satisfaction than the competition's newer devices.A creative company finds ways to satisfy customer needs and desires!
Extremely well said!

If you guys want to play chicken and egg ...There would have been no Apple without Woz ... no platform for Jobs to create the mystique of [the first personal computer] the Apple ][, The Lisa, The Mac, NeXT, the return to Apple ... and all that followed!Strong financial backing, and the legitimacy of successful, experienced businessmen like Mike Markkula and Scottie attracted other savvy business talent like Gene Carter, Will Houd and others.Woz's personality and talent...
