I find it interesting that so many apple 'fans' and pundits assume that Apple is lagging in innovation merely because they haven't refreshed a particular product line in X months. Where are the superior competing products? Who is offering something better at the same price or something truly equivalent at a lower price? I don't seem them, that's for sure. Hell, I wish such a thing existed. I want an iPad mini with retina as badly as the next guy, but until someone...
While I appreciate a contrite attitude on the part of those that do wrong, the lawyer in me cringes at reading public apologies that are tantamount to a full confession.

Big government; as crooked as they are they can't even rule fairly for a company that seems, in many ways, to be a 'friend' of this administration.
This really doesn't make much sense. It would be far more logical for Apple to focus on doubling the resolution of the iPad Mini to get it into the Retina-realm; why would they incur the development and yield costs for the minuscule return of doubling the iPhone's already-retina resolution when they still have a number of products that are sub-Retina?
Maybe it's as simple as Apple trying to keep their friends close and their enemies closer.
This guy really doesn't get it. It's clear that he is so used to a business model where each new product cannibalizes their own market that he can't even fathom the concept of complimentary product lines. Perhaps this is why hearing the word "Swatch" creates a feeling of nostalgia without any corresponding desire to go buy one of their products.
This is the same guy that chided the iPhone when it was released by condescendingly chuckling it off a phone that was too expensive for anyone to buy. Oops. I guess we are starting to understand why Ballmer has such a reputation for sweating profusely.
It is amazing how disconnected Microsoft has become. Whether you love it or hate it, Apple has managed to create a coherent identity for itself. Meanwhile MS manages to simultaneously perpetuate a split personality that is one-half stodgy corporate boredom, while the other half is a schizophrenic, wanna-be hipster. If the "I'm a Mac" campaign reflected the message of this video, John Hodgman would pull out a Glock a pop a cap into Justin Long.
I don't know if I missed something, but I didn't see anywhere if this "retooling" includes Retina support.
