But it's the microsoft way...  ours does EVERYTHING... why choose theirs? Eventually everything is nothing.  Supporting a physical keyboard, stylus, and mouse  and touch commands, doesn't solve problems.. it creates them.   This is what happened to NT.  A great OS to begin with, is suffered 10 years because it had to support 'everything back to DOS 6.0, and Win 95, as well as be a better Unix than Linus, and  do Object Orientation (real object orientation, not object...
This is the Old PC model, that Microsoft was so successful at. Take expensive hardware, add software that makes it easier to use, charge the OEM, not the consumer.   If this was old microsoft, Ballmer would be  telling everyone that 'once Microsoft ships, everyone will see how crappy the current software is,' and ship basically the same stuff but specific to support only MS products (See NT, Win95, LongHorn).   Shipping concept at this point the the game will be the...
agreed that this is not major evidence.   Samsung watched the market.  The iPhone 4s was eating Samsung's lunch.   Samsung called a meeting to clarify both the competition and align on a strategy... If anything it called out the carrier's in their limits in getting Apple to sell anything other than a premium phone, and the carriers then going to Samsung et al, and saying 'we really want cheaper phones to sell, and product exclusivity to compete against other carriers.'  ...
3points 1) once everyone sells a TV like that, the profits will drop in the race to the bottom.  Then Apple has no choice but to sell a device that just plugs into your HDMI port... Oh... it already did that.        I think the converse will have to happen... the 'experience' is defined, and then built into the TV chassis.  Sort of like iOS for Autos, and even there, it's just a firmware interface. 2) The corp who cracks this has to sell more than TVs or cable channels 3)...
No Crow Served here. I don't think Apple even paid no never mind to Roku.  Do you have a reference from Schiller or Cook mentioning Roku's CEO's statement, specifically about being an iOS accessory. In fact, Roku's CEO figured it all out, and understand it more than t most AI readers. People's first purchase into the Apple world will be an iPad or an iPhone.   Once you have that you will accessorize it withYour iPad/iPhone... ($150 profit... on average)- iTMS  (let's start...
Opinions vary.  Once I started using iCloud to store photos, and iTunes Match, I got 10GB free on my 32GB iPhone.   I just think technically and strategically, it's easier to say 'No' to 128GB than to improve other facets of the phone/ipad hw base to support the end game of the apple ecosystem, because in the end, all phones will be commodities, and storage is probably the most commodity of them all.
Your belief and my opinion differ.   and i believe wholeheartedly that specs are for techs.    Show me one apple ad that says... 'Other phones suck because they don't have NNN spec!"   Even Retina display was not about 326dpi (or whatever... see, it doesn't matter), it was about the 'clearest crispest image on a phone'   That people buy.   Even then they don't fight on Spec, they fight on function... so if you're saying 'when it works for them' means that,  of course they...
Justification:  802.11ac, LTE/commodity pipes, and the cloud.    It's the endgame of the the iCloud model.... "All your data are belong to us!" and I didn't say never... I just said goes against the model.... they will go to larger memory once the price/perf/size/battery-drain fits.  
but they don't upgrade to compete with the competition... they upgrade when the price/performance/weight/battery-load works AND it solves a user problem. When was the last time you saw apple talk about RAM and ghz in a presentation?   Even 64bits was about performance... they didn't talk about 'wow, we can address Petabytes of Virtual Memory'  they talked about how fast the thing ran. How it performs in your hand is the only spec that matters.
