Eddy Cue: ‘We’ve got the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple’

“When Apple executives discuss future products, they typically speak in generalities. You know the routine; ‘our product pipeline is strong and consumers will be excited by what’s coming.’ Rinse and repeat,” Yoni Heisler reports for TUAW. “But comments made by Apple executive Eddy Cue during yesterday’s Code Conference were a little bit different.”

“Appearing on stage with Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine, Cue told Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg that Apple’s product pipeline in 2014 is the most impressive he’s seen,” Heisler reports. “‘Later this year, we’ve got the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple,’ Cue said.”

“Executives typically hype their company’s future,” Heisler reports, “but this seems like a supreme display of confidence from Cue.”

        1. Get it right.
          The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
          The proof is in the pudding (be it Apple or otherwise). That’s retarded.
          It’s up there with ‘money is the root of all evil’ or ‘I could care less’.

        2. My use of the paraphrased phrase is totally legit:

          “The proof of the pudding is in the eating,”
          which basically means that the quality of something is uncertain until it has been tested directly, sort of like:
          “You don’t know whether you like it until you’ve tried it.”
          “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

        3. Did you just explain the meaning of a very common saying after someone simply pointed out that you used it wrong?!
          Buddy, you’re freakin hilarious.

        4. Did you just explain the meaning of someone else explaining the explaining of a very common saying after someone simply pointed out it was used correctly?!
          Bozo, you’re a freakin’ cretinous dingle bran.

        5. I guess they let out all the drooling brain dead geektards from the bus to visit MDN today. This one Tag is a particularly sad pitiful wretch. Oh look, he just ate his own poop and loves it!

    1. just like on 24th of january 1984, only then we didn’t see it coming, now we know enough to be in awe at the very thought of what is to come….. the vapor is condensing and solidifying into something marvelous (my retirement !-)

  1. It’s not an all brand new pipeline, folks, it is just a few things added to the existing pipeline, namely an upgraded and now non hobby Apple TV, an iWatch, and pretty good set of bassy headphones. That, combined with what is existing is the best distinguishable pipeline anyone has ever had in 25 years.

    1. Other companies WISH they had a bottom line like Apple’s that doesn’t include making washing machines and tanks. Apples more limited profitable line makes them the In’ ‘n Out Burger of technology (delicious but HQ few menu items = HUGE profits).

      1. Speaking of which how is the elephant dung cleanup industry working out for you? Beats that last hairnet job you had eh? Hope that night education basic education and comprehension course is working out for you too. Be good to finally be up to the 7th grade level at last I would imagine. Understandable your confusion here running on IQ fumes.

  2. Considering every tech company is always trying to be better year over year this isn’t anything special. Apple can incrementally update all existing products and Eddy would still be correct.

    If he said “we’re releasing more new products this year than any in the last 25” then we have something to talk about.

    I believe Apple is set to release a few new product categories, but my personal belief wasn’t concluded by his statements.

  3. I miss Steve Jobs and his tight control of NEW stuff in the pipeline. He controlled the leaks and vendors feared the loss of future orders if they were the source of the leaks. I believe Steve Jobs once said, “Isn’t it strange to see leaks from the top of the ship”.

    1. Even Steve Jobs promised stuff that never happened, as in 3Ghz PowerPC G5’s. Assurances from IBM (undelivered) led him astray. Funny how everyone put the great Steve Jobs up to a perfect standard even he didn’t always live up to (no one could) and all else now must be perfect in execution that even the Master didn’t always accomplish. Tain’t fair to Tim Cook and his following CEO heirs.

  4. Oh my a jouranalyst that is reporting a fact, must be tough. Oh I’d love them to put it on the line and complete the though “As for what Apple has up its sleeve, that’s anybody’s guess.” which makes the speculative jouranalist and whore street analyst in dire need of an Anustralian to make them look good.


    “All that being said, it’s always important to remember that no Apple product or service, no matter how loud the rumor mill, is ever a done deal until an Apple executive trots out on stage and introduces it.”

    It’s a concept called privacy. Enjoy it while you can.

  5. Walt with a very surprised look, “You’ve done the iMac, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad. All really great products.”

    Eddy shaking his head in agreement with a confident smirk on his face, “And the products we’ve got coming are great.”

    It doesn’t sound like Eddy is only talking about current product updates. I’m trying to think of any product that could be as more impactful than the iPhone and here are a few off the top of my head:

    1. A device which projects movable holograms
    2. A device which heals damaged DNA using frequencies
    3. Huge advancements in energy production/storage
    4. Quantum computing and networks
    5. Antigravity devices
    6. Room temperature super conductors
    7. Inexpensive personal robots
    8. A drug or treatment to double or triple lifespans
    9. and a few others

    Is Apple about to change the world again?

  6. Old Eddy’s smoking something or his pipeline is very small like 1/4 inch tubing. Timber promised exiting new products “throughout” 2014. Right. Keep holding your breath.
