Apple: The Next Generation

Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in what has felt like an eternity, Apple Inc. has begun to recapture some of the magic surrounding its innovative products since the tragic passing of its iconic and visionary co-founder Steve Jobs three years ago. Is Apple officially back? Well, no, because you can’t bring Steve Jobs back. However, the next generation of Apple Inc. (see what I did there) appears to be presenting its latest gadgets for us to awe at with great joy today from the Flint Center in Cupertino, California.

The new products, plus a free album from U2, and it’s safe to conclude this was a truly amazing iAmazing day for Apple.

Two quick observations: In an effort to progress beyond the solitary charisma of the late Steve Jobs and his excellent presenting skills, Apple Inc. has appeared to have assigned divisional heads to explain each of its major product reveals. Part of the next generation leadership of the company I’m hypothesizing. And that the iPhone 6 Plus is getting closer to the size of the Zack Morris brick phone. Just something to contemplate…

To think (again, see what I did there), this iPhone craze all started with an announcement seven years ago…

Beyond the “fresh out of the box” experience, will these products sell? Will they frame and become the future of personal technology?

While these answers are unknown, I think the world is ready to take a fresh, delicious bite out of Apple today.
