Overnight Apple’s Eddy Cue has been talking at the Code convention in the US, and has made an fascinating declare: that Apple’s “product pipeline” is the greatest they’ve had in 25 years.
(Pic from Code Conference web site.)
The actual quote is as follows, and was picked up by 9to5Mac:
“I have been working with Tim since 1997. We began the on-line retailer collectively. Cook is extraordinarily thorough, he has super imaginative and prescient. He cares tremendously about constructing nice merchandise. Looking at the government staff, the purpose we’re profitable is due to our focus. We aren’t sensible sufficient to do one hundred nice issues. We need to do a number of unimaginable issues, and that hasn’t modified. We’re going to maintain taking place that path… Later this year, we have got the greatest product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple”
By “product pipeline” he doesn’t suggest Apple are diversifying into plumbing, however that the line-up of merchandise will be what he thinks is the greatest. As Professor Wikipedia tells us, and enterprise research college students ought to keep in mind:
“A product pipeline is a collection of merchandise developed and bought by an organization, ideally in totally different levels of their life cycle. Having at any level in an organization’s life some merchandise in the progress and mature stage of the life cycle is the aim.”
So to translate this into the numerous rumours we have been listening to about what Apple have received deliberate it suggests there will be some older “mature” merchandise… like, say, the iPhone S as we’re all anticipating, in addition to some new stuff… might he be intimating that the a lot rumoured iWatch is certainly on the approach?
