It's like saying, "I'm really impatient for the next big thing from Apple, even if I can't say what that is that I'm waiting for." Self-driving cars? Asteroid mining? Is that really what they're demanding from Apple? No (yet somehow, it's awesome sauce when Google does it, go figure).
So I conclude that the only reason people like @AjbDtc826
keep making such arguments is to bad mouth Apple (or Tim Cook) for not being Google enough. On the other hand, if there's even an ounce of sincerity for concern over Apple's competitiveness, how will posting about it on these forums change Apple in a positive way? (It won't, and that was never his intention).
