Apple Will Disrupt And Destroy Industries When It’s Ready

  • December 27, 2013

This is article has been out a while, however the content is pertinent today as it will be in 10 years. Writing for The Street, Rocco Pendola posits that – Apple will disrupt and destroy  when it’s ready

Suffice it to say, I believe Pendola is spot onAccording Rocco Pendola, the iPad Air clearly demonstrates that the Cupertino-based is still very innovative: 

I’ve had my iPad Air for about two weeks now. And, it reaffirms my suspicion that an Apple HDTV, possibly morphed with a set-top box, will come sooner or later.

That’s because, now having used the last two iterations of iPad, it’s clear to me that Martellaro’s correct. Not only can Apple still innovate, it does so on its own timeline. If other companies make it first to market with a product, so be it. None use the same attention to detail or have the level of respect for the consumer that Apple does.

In the iPad Air promo video below (32 seconds mark), Jony Ive revealed that the iPad Air was years in the making:

I’m convinced that at some point in 2014, Apple will be launching new categories of products – iTV and iWatch come to mind.

For a glimpse of what Apple might have in store, let us review the company’s acquisitions in 2013:

BroadMap

BroadMap provides government, non-profit and commercial business partners with custom-fit Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions. BroadMap® is a driving force and pioneer in the areas of digital mapping products and services, telecom, location intelligence and web & mobile applications.

Catch

According to 9to5 mac, Catch was a popular, cross-platform note taking application that has been regarded by many as a competitor to Evernote.

WifiSLAM

This was a two-year-old startup that developed ways for mobile apps to detect a phone user’s location in a building using Wi-Fi signals. It has been offering the technology to application developers for indoor mapping and new types of retail and social networking apps.

Locationary

This is a Canadian startup that merges information about local businesses with location data.

Hopstop

This provides transit and walking directions.

Embark

This is an app with detailed mass transit information in seven U.S. cities.

Topsy Lab

Topsy is a realtime search engine powered by the Social Web. Unlike traditional web search engines, Topsy indexes and ranks search results based upon the most influential conversations millions of people are having every day about each specific term, topic, page or domain queried.

CUE

Cue was a intelligent personal assistant app that was designed for heavy social network users, allowing them to search content across Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

PrimeSense

PrimeSense provides  3D vision and gesture technology. It is rumored that this might make an appearance in a future iTV.

As an Apple fan, I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings.
