It depends on wether Apple will go bust in the devices area by lagging behind or if it will continue to be the standard of how these devices should be made.
I’ve seen a lot of heated comments to this article about how Apple is not innovating and about how android is ages ahead and so on and so forth.
They all feel exactly like the folks blowing up threads about windows issues with how linux is complete superiority. It’s funny how the same things seem to be missed by people obviously generations apart.
Google Lens is amazing and it is exactly the way they could power up great devices (from Apple or from many other device manufacturers) by solving the systems problem which AR is.
I believe that there will always be technological flagships. We need them socially for adoption, some stellar product which people at least aspire to, even if they can’t afford it. They may be from Apple or from some other hardware company, for now it is very likely that the fruit will stick around.
Regarding the concern that Steve Jobs is dead and so will be creativity in his legacy enterprise, I would warn that against Microsoft the same doom was predicted to fall and it hasn’t. It just takes time and if there is anything money buys, than that is time, and Apple has plenty of money to buy time with.
Thank you! :)
