    Good interview, altho’ Gene’s ads creep me out. Take away:
    1. Apple doesn’t want to do all the apps. It mostly lets iOS developers do their thing. With Maps, Apple realized that it was a critical app that Google would keep crippled on iOS devices. So it had to do its own. (I wonder if Apple didn’t assume that the paid map apps by developers like Garmin, TomTom, etc. would continue to fill this critical function. Did Google steal a march?)
    2. Again regarding developers, the Android platform is fragmented to the point that developers won’t or can’t support it. Even new Android phones arrive with old OS versions, sans features, plus bugs.
    3. Apple is a lot smarter than us about what’s is doing. Better be. (I grew up in Chicago back when blockbusting was rampant. We need a new coinage, stockbusting, to name the Wall Street saboteurs whose whole livelihood is rooted on creating chaos within companies. Not change. Not improvement. Just pure chaos.)

    4. Apple may do a watch but it won’t be a watch. (To misquote a political slogan, it’s the wrist, stupid. I dislike watches but I think Apple may do one. Not a watch but a monitor. Cus’ apparently sensors on the wrist can deliver significant medical and exercise information. In the next five to ten years, this info link might become a critical health and insurance function. Put emergency alerts on it for disabled and old folks. Include localized Siri for timers and reminders. OK, add a clock etc. Apple loves the challenge of small and simple gear. And it loves disruption. Nobody does both better. At $200 it will sell a billiard. OK, $199.)

    I enjoy reading your articles as you have great insights and do your research. But you really do not do yourself any favors associating yourself with Mr. Steinberg. By doing so, you take away from your credibility and reputation.
