Frankly, wouldn't be surprised if he left 20 years worth of ideas behind.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Agree.

This strikes me as a non-news piece. What major company out there doesn't have at least 3 years in the product development pipeline at any given moment?

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Given the time that it takes to bring a new product to the market, I would be shocked if they weren't already working on iPad 4 and the iPhone 5/5s. Having 4 years of "plans" should be a shock to no one.

This is just my opinion, but SkyNet really struggles to bring good gear to the forums.
