The coming Apple revolution

“As Apple investors prepare to listen in on the Q4 conference call, I want to give you some big picture things to think about. The most important thing you will hear in the call concerns the progress of the App Store. Apple’s App Store has opened up a can of worms that will define the 2010-2020 decade. Online distribution of content and software will quickly become the only way to distribute. 24 months from now we will laugh about how we used to cut down trees to print newspapers that were hand delivered to our homes. How archaic. The fact that all major newspapers and magazines are offering apps through the Apple ecosystem cements the future success of Apple’s Tablet device as the digital solution to the bygone era of print media,” Jason Schwarz writes for Seeking Alpha. “This part is easy to see coming but what else should we prepare ourselves for? What’s coming in 2011 or 2012?”

“The fundamental purpose of Apple hardware will change,” Schwarz writes. “The biggest money making opportunity on planet earth is the current opportunity to build products that properly utilize apps. The key to innovation will be to figure out how to effectively merge multiple functions onto a single device. The iPhone is the perfect example. It filled so many needs through seamless integration. The Tablet will do the same.”

Schwarz writes, “What’s next? It will be Apple TV.”

  1. “24 months from now we will laugh about how we used to cut down trees to print newspapers”

    The hyperbole engine here is in full thrust mode. Nothing like rendering your entire writing unbelievable….oh, and he’s shilling for his e-Book, BTW.

    Not that great things aren’t going to happen with Apple, but this guy is clearly not anyone I’d believe.

  2. maybe the mayans predicted that december 2012 would be the end of the world… for steve ballmer as Microsoft would fall and Apple would be the leader in marketshare?

    I’ve read stuff on my iphone many times in bed and fell asleep doing so. atleast when I fall asleep and wake up I know where I last left off.. dropping a book.. good luck finding the page you were on.

    At work I still dont get why some people will receive a pdf… then feel the need to print it out… im like seriously? just double click and you can read it. Now you just saved paper and a walking trip to your printer. And this isn’t some new feeling to me.. When I was younger I still didn’t see the use of printing things out of it was on a computer screen.. unless it needs to be mailed.. and even then.. if its a form why cant I just email it?

    Dont even get me started on faxing.. other than to have an agreement signature its the biggest waste of time

  5. I didn’t even know the Apple revolution was breathing hard.

    On topic, though, I’m going to have to disagree with Mr. Schwartz’s assessment that no one is interested in online movie distribution. Just last week I finally got sick of the lousy selection at my only local video store, Blockbuster. Due to them and Netflix, the good, indie stores in my area have all been shuttered. I broke down and joined Netflix. About 17,000 movies are available to stream to my Macbook and my iMac. In just one week, my family has watched twice as many movies online as we have the DVD’s in our cue. If the movie industry would open up the lock-box and license more movies for streaming, I believe video-on-demand would quickly catch fire.

  6. Why is M$ scared of Apple despite having 95 % of the pie?

    Because they know that it aint so! They know they are loosing ground rapidly in the consumer and student markets. And they know 95% is a figure that includes a large chunk of pirated software that never earned them a cent.

    The iPhone changed everything. So many new Apple users around the world and the roller coaster surges onwards. Microsoft fear being left with just a corporate rump and a lot of that will switch to OS X and Linux.

  7. Apple has always been a revolution.

    Looking forward to the future!

    Micro$ucks actually should worry more about Google.
    Pressure is coming from Google now more than anywhere else, the unknown wild card showing glimpses of real promise.
