“Does anyone still remember the olden days when doomed Apple [AAPL] shipped products?” Jonny Evans asks for Computerworld.
“Those days appear gone, giving Foxconn a headache and turning all our predictions upside down, 205 days have passed since Apple gave us a significant product release,” Evans reports. “Take the Mac Pro: Writing in an email Apple CEO, Tim Cook, last year promised an upgraded model this year, many hoped it may make its debut at or around NAB. It didn’t. The only fresh Apples since last year have consisted of a processor upgrade for Retina Display models of MacBook Pro and a higher-capacity iPad, but that’s it.”
Evans writes, “Apple’s last big reveal took place on October 23, 2012 when the iPad mini, iPad 4, Retina Display MacBook Pro (13-inch) and new iMac took their bow. This 205 day wait since a significant Apple hardware product release is the longest gap I can recall in a decade.”
