A New Year
January 16, 2013 - Dave Hecei
The holidays are over and so is my bout with this winter’s flu epidemic. Now I guess it’s time to get back to work. Well, at least to blogging about Apple.
Apple ended 2012 pretty strong, as long as you disregard some fired personnel and the iOS maps debacle. So far, January hasn’t been quite as nice. In just the last few days Apple’s stock price has free-fallen from the mid-500s to below 490. This is dramatic and even a little scary considering it was over 700 only a few months ago (September).
I don’t own any Apple stock and am not a stock market analyst. The wide fluctuations of Apple stock are more a market reaction and don’t really reflect the actual health of Apple and their products. I still think that Apple stock is valuable, but don’t buy on my say so.
The future of Apple is obviously strong. The problem might be that they have their core products now but do they have anything new on the horizon with the wow factor of an iPod, iPhone, or iPad? There will always be the new updated laptop or desktop Macintosh. The new updated iPhone with a larger screen or faster processor. Apple needs to show that they can still innovate without Steve Jobs.
About the only thing that the Apple tech/rumor mongers are talking about is the mythical Apple television. I’m not talking about the little black cube called the Apple TV, but an actual big-screen LCD television with the promise of Apple software that makes it all work. This might be the year that it finally is unveiled. If they can accomplish this task, within the next year, and it works, it will show the world that the post-Steve Jobs’ Apple still works.
