Apple

This wasn't Grignon's typical route to work. He was a senior engineer at Apple in Cupertino, the town just west of Campbell. His morning drive typically covered seven miles and took exactly 15 minutes. But today was different. He was going to watch his boss, Steve Jobs, make history at the Macworld trade show in San Francisco. Apple fans had for years begged Jobs to put a cellphone inside their iPods so they could stop carrying two devices in their pockets. Jobs was about to fulfill that wish. Grignon and some colleagues would spend the night at a nearby hotel, and around 10 a.m. the following day they - along with the rest of the world - would watch Jobs unveil the first iPhone.

Apple never really created new technologies but instead turned them into mainstream : Personal Computers, Smartphones, media players.

I wonder what could be the next thing an innovative Apple could re-invent : 3D printers, home robots... What else ?

Making a new TV set or a watch seems would be quite disappointing and it is too late for electric cars...
