Apple’s stock run-up was as a result of the iPod, iPhone and iPad. If they don’t come up with the iWhatever, it’s over. Is that a mystery? Isn’t that just like a band? Without a hit new album live business never goes UP! There’s still money to be made by a classic act on the road, but if U2’s next album stiffs, they ain’t gonna be selling out stadiums.
It’s what have you done for me lately.
And lately, Apple’s been selling a ton of product. Despite all the naysayers, it’s all cutting edge.
But that won’t be forever.
Want to know what Apple’s future is? YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO WAIT!
Just like you’re gonna have to wait for Bowie’s album, and Justin Timberlake’s.
Then again, Apple hasn’t been gone from the arena for half a decade. But it acts like it has. Like the company’s above it all. Once upon a time, Steely Dan didn’t have to tour. But things change. Record sales tank, lives are altered, the band survives on the road today.
Steve Jobs is dead. Secrecy and lack of information are an historical paradigm. As dead as the Apple II.
Apple needs to change its style.
Even more it needs a new hit product.
