  Actually on the ipad side what I would like to see is a move to the 16:9 aspect ratio. That would simplyfied resolution handling on the dev side and could explain why they would go to unnessary high PPI on the phones.    Phones could run at 1920x1080 full HD and tablets could run at double HD. That would take care of the resolution for a few years on all mobile devices and Apple could have a very clean dual resolution pattern that would be very clean for devs.   On top...
  They just didnt had the screen tech to do a retina mini last year. Imo we will get it this year. The regular ipad should be thinner and lighter too if they changed the screen tech.
I am hoping Apple keeps the current ipad mini when the new one gets out, but drop the price so it can maintain a decent market share.
  imo a 5" phone and a cheap emerging market phone would fall into the "execution" category. On tops on subpar innovation, the markets thinks Apple is also doing a bad job on execution. Apple should enter those markets, that would help EPS but its not going to WoW people. To me those products are important because they would support critical mass of the ecosystems. Apple needs to preserved its ecosystem and should offer something at the low end, because they are the only...
  There is nothing illegal in shorting a stock.  Trying to drive down the stock with false news could be investigated depending on youre status or media.   Apple did what they had to do regarding shareholders, the return to investment in terms of dividends and buyback is outstanding. This is why dips around $400 are getting violent rebounds because the stock P/E drops below 10 and the yield gets to 3% at those levels. Professional short sellers will cover depending on...
Imo it only makes sense if they go full hd on bigger screen... ... oh wait, they could make full HD the new resolution on the phone. A 5" full 1080p HD phone and the current 4" could move to 720p, so half the resolution of the bigger phone. Both screen size would be over current retina PPI and it would be great for app devs. in the same line of thinking , the new retina ipad mini could be half the resolution of the bigger retina ipad. Again, easier for devs.
  From what I heard the new iOS will be more powerfull as Apple will tend to merge OS-X and iOS features in the next few years. But you are right, iOS is lagging Android. This may change in a few weeks, lets hope they leap over it. I wouldn't be surprise if Apple introduce some kind of touch base laptop with OS-X borrowing iOS features while iOS borrow some OS-X features in terms of  power.   There is also the screen size problem, beside a few Apple worshippers,...
  if I remember correctly Apple didnt offer anything to the carriers in the US when it launch the iphone because it had a 3 years deal with AT&T. I dont hate Apple at all, but they way they deal with carriers is just wrong.
    Its going to release new macs for starters. But I am hoping for a surprise on the hardware side. The Apple stock needs it badly.
    imo, I am hoping Foxconn doesnt turn into Samsung #2 and start rolling out there own products...
