See the pie was invented in the North of England. Due to the miners there would eat the pie and discard the crust - I bet the South of England doesn't have history like that does it? About pie.

However, they are more concerned with implementation, and don't mind using older tech to achieve it. This is always ignored by the community.
They may not be perfect, but its hard to deny the contributions and influence Apple has in the tech field.

In many cases, it doesn't. I'm constantly fighting with the OS when trying to use my wife's or my sister's iPad.
Safari closing by itself for no reason (and no possibility to install another browser), games crashing, some apps that seem to be stuck in loading mode (I have to forcibly close them then start them again), ...
Same goes with my mother's Macbook Pro.. I keep bumping into limitations, it sometimes slows down a lot although nothing heavy is running.
Are those things intended to be like that?
"It just works, most of the time and not always the way you expect" would probably be a more realistic motto..
For the "innovation" part of your post.. well as others have said, it works just fine on Android already, and has been working for a while.
Well, guess what. This is called the Internet of Things. IoT for short. It has been around for a long time. Microsoft is already investing in this. Apple will get away with it though because they will make it available to the dumb customers they have who will think that Apple invented this technology. This is very sad. I hope somebody catches Apple for this.
Yeah, this is pretty widespread tech. The ability to control multiple functions of your home from smartphones has been available for years.
Alarm systems (door locks, windows), cameras, lights, digital devices/equipment, appliances, thermostat, etc.
Nothing new or innovative. (see below)

Anonymous, 27 May 2014It's interesting. As others have pointed out, Google have already taken steps towards this. ... moreSamsung phones can already control Samsung TV's, for example. I realise this would encompass more than just that of course. I just wonder how long it take Apple to try and sue Samsung because the iPhone can turn a TV on or off claiming some patent infringment or the other. Watch anyone making a remote control that is similar size to their next iPhone, especially if it rectangular too!

But I feel the Apple solution will just get so much support behind it, that Samsung will decide they'd be better off supporting it.
It might not work out that way.
Apple don't seem to fail often though.
But, hey, only time will tell, really.
Anonymous, 27 May 2014lol.. even my 2011 iPhone 4 is faster than 2013 samsung s4(so called octacore crap).. How fast is your iPhone desktop internet?
