Apple "innovated" voice actions and cloud syncing this generation...decade-old things for google/android.
Next up and already slated will be 4g, a bigger screen, NFC -- each late to the party AGAIN!
Now on the horizon, "smart" styluses, gps maps of their own.
I hear the iphone 6 may revive Flash from the graveyard. ..of course it will be an innovation when Apple finally embraces it...lmao!
As to this last, of course I jest...but if you look at the track record, it is a common tactic for Apple to directly eschew and/or criticize things while OTHERS already have them...i.e., rationalize and make excuses for Apple NOT being an "innovator," only to pretend later to "innovate" the very same existing things once they catch up.
Maybe by the time Apple's overpriced, repackaging of other company's actual innovations holds only 10% of the world cellphone market (it is at only 23% right now and expanding much slower than android)...the reality distortion and denial will finally burst, and the devoted will be able to admit to themselves that Apple's primary strength is to simplify and take small steps BACKWARD from the edge of innovation, in order to make other innovators' risks somewhat more reliable or user-friendly. They take the cutting edge...dull it a bit for easier consumption..and tie a pretty bow on top, and sell at a higher profit margin. It is a successful business model.
That ought be good enough and holds genuine value to the consumer....but enough with the blatant lies and false pretensions to "innovation" while stifling progress through distasteful conduct as the single most aggressive, jealous, petty, greedy techno-troll that the planet has ever known.
