Tim Cook: Apple is closer than ever to unveiling a new product line

Tim Cook: Apple is closer than ever to unveiling a new product line Apple CEO Tim Cook has stated that the company is "closer than it's ever been" to launching a new product line, following years of the executive claiming that a new product is finally coming.
Of course, Cook reiterated that "you want to take the time to get it right," when asked why the process has taken so long for a new product. "To do things really well, it takes time," Cook said in his interview. "You can see a lot of products that have been brought to market where the thinking isn't really deep and, as a consequence, these things don't do very well."

Among the most rumored products are an Apple-powered HDTV, a smartwatch with fitness focus, or a full fitness band. Cook did not mention any specific products or leave any hints as to a time frame.

Additionally, mobile payments have been oft-rumored as an industry that Apple could take over, due to having hundreds of millions of customers signed into iTunes with a credit card attached. Cook said the Touch ID fingerprint scanner could be integrated into a mobile payments platform but that the whole industry is "an area where nobody has figured it out yet. I realize that there are some companies playing in it, but you still have a wallet in your back pocket and I do too which probably means it hasn't been figured out just yet."

My best guess is that for Crapple it takes time to steal others people ideas and patent them like is an iCrap invention.
...Over price the product and scam all the iSheeps as much and as long they can.

Pure & simple Mac garbage "investment" mentality; if you ask me.

Are you a goof??

And IF you indeed post this as a "joke" without actually stating that then you're a HUGE goof!

The Onion is fraudulent in every way. Nothing on it is legit or factual. This isn't happening and anyone that believes a laptop with a "wheel" (giant touchpad) will actually replace a KB then they're total bafoons too and should be punished by pain for their stupidity.


Do your research first and MOST OF ALL........STAY THE F OFF THE ONION...........or at least don't propagate their nonsense please.

Thx

Sorry little girl for offending you because you no doubt believed this too UNTIL you saw it's from The Onion.

However, 99% of people fall for Onion-related nonsense, including IT people and ones like yourself that "claim" they're intelligent and then propagate it to others as if it's real.

If it's intended as a joke then any "idiot" as you say, would have followed up with some notation that it was intended to be one.

Now......you ARE a goof for falling for this.

The originator of the article is a goof for posting this with absolute conviction.

and because you don't seem to know what the word "goof" means......here you go little girl....(Look familiar??) HA HA HA

AD should have banned your ass for the insulting remark you made as it was motivated solely by your need to vindicate.

Mine......was a remark to someone that deserved it as they actually think it's real. Hence the phrase in "question" form.

You find "ignorance distasteful" yet you spew it!! WTF?

Stop posting here jagoff!

Do you think you are the only one "in the know" about the Onion? It has been a parody news mag for many years, DB. Anyone with a modicum of common sense would know that the OP did not believe the macbook wheel was an actual item and sarcasm was lost on you.

anyone with any sense of humour would know the onion video was a joke aimed at apple.i saw the video about 4 years ago and knew it was a joke bk then.Also like the onion sony video but havn't seen a thread worthy of the link.

If apple did actually come up with a new product it would of been leaked probably months ago and we'd all know what it is.They are probably just redesigning something and trying to claim it as there own.

What !?
What are you talking about !?

I already order my first Mac Product Laptop with a "Little Wheel" via the Onion ("THE" news source). I will be so happy to never use a KB again, not even for hacking.

Oh.
They give me: 50% off as a warm welcome to the iSheep Club.
