My guess is we will get a 4.8 inch screen and apple will do an edge to edge display and keep the devise pretty close to its current size.
I hope google will lower the price. I want one, but not for $250. It should be more like $80-$125 range. Not sure why anyone would care if Google knows when people are home or not. It's not like they would sell the info to house theives. It may be creepy how much data google has but credit card companies are worse. Banks know everything you purchase, how much you make, how much you save, etc. And they sell your info to others.
Of course the phone will continue to change.  However, are you suggesting that the mobile phone won't be commoditized? If that's what you are suggesting, I think you are wrong.  The hardware business is inherently susceptible to commoditization. Do you understand what it means to be commoditized? Let me give you an example: the "hammer."  There will always be improvements to the hammer.  The latest improvements have been in new materials like titanium and different ways to...
I said mobile phones would be commoditized, not the entire world of computing devices.  It's easy to contradict me when you get to reword what I said.  And you're a fool if you think the mobile phone won't get commoditized.  The risk for Apple is that it isn't out exploring new products and businesses. When the market shifts, Apple has no chance of having the next technology because that isn't its business model.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting Apple is going to...
In 100 years, nobody will care about the iPhone. The smartphone will be commoditized like the ball point pen. However, I think there is a good chance Google Search will still dominate search. It has nothing to do with innovativeness...just the nature of the two businesses.
And a very good game plan. It makes leaders earn their position in the market and gives new entrants a home court advantage. Favoring the underdog in business is somewhat unique to the United States and is one of our greatest assets (along with a strong patent system and education system)
Just saw the link on SolipsismX signature.  Agreed, jragosta will be missed.  When 55 year olds pass away, it makes you think how short life can be.
I'm not surprised. Big companies a generally not better at innovating. Apple has a few employees working on photo compression. If those two people don't think of the solution, then it doesn't get developed at Apple. In contrast, there are hundreds of thousands of other engineers with diverse experiences that could make the invention. The odds greatly favor outside development. BTW, the increased likelihood of invention outside of the market leader is the reason the patent...
First, look at your post 97. You were clearly chiming in about the conflict issue.Secondly, I said Kappos did a better job than Dudas. And he did.  Dudas created an army of poorly trained examiners that rejected everything 5 times and then allowed stuff for no rational reason. Kappos, turned the ship around (or at least started the process).  Do you have any experience with the the patent office during the Kappos and Dudas administrations or are you just talking out of...
I'm sorry to be so harsh, but your comments are replete with examples that illustrate you don't understand patent law.  Let's begin with your statement than an idea is patentable. Guess what, "ideas" are not patentable.  An invention is a article of manufacture, chemical composition, or process.  The law requires that you embody your idea in a device, composition or process.  The mere idea is not patentable.  (although I suppose we can give you a mulligan if what you meant...
