Good call, newbie! The A-Watch is BUTT UGLY!
We're talking 1982 Seiko ugly! And how about that bubble interface? BARF CITY! Apple is still lost in Jonny Ives Candyland and the A-Watch is a design FAIL!
So, let me get this straight. Apple makes iCloud Drive work with versions of Windows that are up to 5 years old, but will only work on versions of iOS and OS X that haven't even been released yet?
What's wrong with this picture?
I'm so glad Appleinsider posted this story. It proves that Apple is still the innovative juggernaut it was under Steve Jobs. I can sleep soundly tonight now that I've seen the iPhone 6's incredible speaker assembly.
This article is a classic example of how an alarmist headline and lead-in can distort the real story. The headline makes it seem as though Samsung's chip business is in trouble. The real story is that their semiconductor division posted a 6% gain in profits year over year in the latest quarterly statement. While it's true that Wall Street may not have been thrilled by a 6% increase in profits, it's hardly an indication that the division has a "bleak outlook" as the first...

You're right. These last four years without a major new product release have not all been on Cook's watch. Just most of it.And as for those six years you claim that Apple went under Jobs without a major new product release, you're flat wrong.In 2005 Apple released the Mac G5, featuring, for the first time, a computer with entirely new system architecture--a major product. In the other intervening years Apple released other entirely new products, including the first Intel...
Apple has finally completed its transition to being the new Microsoft. Instead of innovating like they used to under Steve Jobs, now they merely buy companies that are already making products they like.

Welcome to mediocrity, Apple.
