    sure, but it isn't like they don't have bales of cash to pull it off.

    Yep, but cheaper and faster to market wins. Innovation, not so much.

    hmm. I'm not sure I fully agree with this. It was Apple's innovation that got them their winning products in the first place. You could argue, it was a first, but smartphones were already long on the market before apple's iPhone. So it wasn't the speed to the market that won there.

    From what I see of iOS7, I don't see a whole lot of 'fast to the market' really here. I think APple's command of the market allows them to set the pace for innovation, why concern themselves with the others? Perhaps that's lapsed a little too long now.

    To me, Apple has in general been about redefining computing and gadgets, iOS7 so far, kinda falls short there for me. They've had plenty of time to rethink a lot, perhaps we'll see more in iOS8. If not, I just may head to the dark side. For all the hue and cry over copyright infringements, I have to say I like what I see in Android. I'm not ready to jump ship yet, but I'm hoping to see a lot more from iOS.
