Apple Let me tell you, when what you teach and develop every day has the title "Innovation" attached to it, you reach a point where you tire of hearing about Apple. Without question, nearly everyone believes the equation Apple = Innovation is a fundamental truth--akin to the second law of thermodynamics, Boyle's Law, or Moore's Law. But ask these same people if they understand exactly how Apple comes up with their ideas and what approach the company uses to develop blockbuster products--whether it is a fluky phenomenon or based on a repeatable set of governing principles--and you mostly get a dumbfounded stare. This response is what frustrates me most, because people worship what they don't understand.

Its obviously more then apple caring and no one else giving a rats ass. They have capital and a steady revenue stream to keep them afloat while they can take 2-5 years to develop a product. They can afford to wait until the technology that enables their vision to flourish exists. Joe start up does not have those luxuries. So you can blame the large companies for not doing the same, but smaller ones are often faced with a ship or die deadline
