It's also a feature that Apple apparently struggled to get into the iPad 2, but simply couldn't get it perfected in time (it's also important to note that all of these stories are based on hearsay as Apple never speaks publicly about product development, challenges, upcoming devices, applications or features). Beyond personal computers, mobile devices, the music and film industry, it seems clear that television could well be the next entertainment industry that Apple looks to re-invent (and own). What about Apple TV?

Many think RIM is faltering because they aren't innovating like Apple or Google ( Android is a Google initiative). Comparing Apple to RIM is like comparing Jay-Z to The Beatles.

Many people didn't think Apple (a computer manufacturer) could never successfully produce and market a smartphone and those same people probably questioned a search engine's ability to create a mobile platform like Android. Now, whether or not they can compete and innovate against companies such as Apple or Google? It wasn't last week. Hardly.
