Apple and Where Have You Gone Innovation ?
"...For a company that claims to sink billions of dollars into research and development, the evolution of its products has been painfully slow."


Great observation Eric.   Sure,  Apple has saturated the market as far as phone sales in the U.S. are concerned and it looks like sales outside the U.S. have leveled off as well.

But what is the issue with their other products ? How long must one wait for an upgrade that is worth the cost ? I own a Mac Book and generally like to use it but would like to upgrade but the add-ons of the next model is not worth it.

This has been the case for years with the few Apple products I own.

But I am not alone in this - there are millions in the same boat.
