Apple Apple's Phil Shiller has been trash-talking Android in the press these past few days - just as Samsung is about to launch its Galaxy S4. "Public, preemptive slamming of a competitor is far outside Apple's PR wheelhouse; it's a dramatic shift for a company used to making news rather than reacting to it. But why is it happening?" The Verge hits the nail on the head: "Cupertino's behavior this week is yet another symptom of Samsung's stratospheric rise in the smartphone market globally, a rise that challenges Apple and has outright stifled Android competitors like HTC and Sony."

I have no clue what their next big thing would be.

Personally I doubt a watch or tv set would be such a thing. The Google glasses are very interesting, but I think they'd be nerd/geek only for a long time.

If I was in charge at Apple I'd spend a lot of money on the current products and get rid of all the complaints people have.

And create the iDesk! A desk with an integrated touchpad, usb/firewire/lightning ports, iPhone dock, speakers, power outlets, WiFi, etc...
