Stop Whining About Apple’s So-Called ‘Lack of Innovation’

apple_logo_grey1Tech pundit MG Siegler couldn’t have said it any better about Apple’s innovation, or apparent lack thereof:

After all, it’s been so long since the last truly innovative product, the iPad, came out. Um, the iPad came out three years ago. Three years! Guess how much time there was between that product and the last “truly innovative” product, the iPhone? Three years. Guess how much time there was between that product and the last “truly innovative” product, the iPod? Five and a half years.

Newsflash: true innovation takes time. Apple has by far the best track-record in recent history when it comes to such products. But how quickly we forget how long each one took to come to market. There needs to be a Turn so we can appreciate the Prestige. But screw that. We want more, better, faster. Cue Louis CK.

Apple will deliver innovation in due time. Everyone needs to calm down.
