Apple After Steve Jobs: 10 Hits And Misses

Hit: Mac users over the years have shown they're willing to pay extra for eye-grabbing style, high-end components, and a relatively simple computing experience. Apple hasn't disappointed, albeit it with the occasional exception, and continues to unveil high-end Macs designed to dazzle the senses.

The MacBook Pro with Retina display, which debuted in June 2012, is the latest example of this profitable strategy. A super-slim laptop with a 15.4-inch, 2880- by 1800-pixel display, two Thunderbolt ports, and no optical drive, the Retina-enabled MacBook Pro has garnered cheers for its style and performance--as well as jeers from environmentalists for its glued-in battery, which isn't easy to disassemble and recycle. Price? If you have to ask, you probably can't afford one: $2,200 to $2,800 (or more with extras).

Apple HDTV: Jobs ... said he had "finally cracked" one of life's great mysteries. Sounds a bit like Fermat's Last Theorem, which *was* finally proved, so there is hope;-)

Uhhhmmm folks if Ping is 2 years old then it is not a post Steve Jobs product, the decision to kill it was post Steve Jobs but the product was his.

This also looks a lot like an Apple ad since it isn't really hits and misses it also has some "well we don't know yet products" apparently just so you can show them off.
