CNBC [via Daring Fireball]: “They only have 60 days left to either come up with something or they will disappear,” said Trip Chowdhry, managing director at Global Equities Research.
Where do they find these guys? When I read stuff like this it’s obvious these analysts do not understand how Apple works. Someone made up the idea of the iWatch, a bunch of competitors in the market jumped on it, now Apple “must” have one? That’s definitely not how they work. They never have and I don’t see that changing. I’ know they’ve grown over the years but Apple runs very lean. They stay focused. Would I be surprised if they created some sort of wearable device? No, I would not. Would I be surprised if it was just a watch? Yes. Look, they already created the iWatch years ago(September 1, 2010) and didn’t know it.
Here is something else to think about. Apple wasn’t the first to create a computer, a music player, a smart phone, or a tablet. They just did it better than anyone before them and changed how we look at these devices.
