I’m only quoting and linking to this because it’s probably going to be the biggest piece of garbage you’ll read all week (and it’s just getting started). Richard Saintvilus for Forbes:

However, for the company to truly move forward as a tech power, Apple should hang-up on the iPhone after one more iteration – presumably the iPhone 6. You might disagree. Granted, the phone is still selling well. However, aside from a different chip and larger screen, the change from the 4S to iPhone 5 was not that significant.

Also, what can Apple add to the iPhone 6 or “5S” that would be appreciably better than the current version? In other words, I don’t think the company wants to go down this line – feeling pressured to excite the Street with each new iteration, especially since margins are beginning to decline. Besides, where will it lead – to the iPhone 10? And then what?

Instead, Apple needs to focus on its TV ambitions, which I’ve said should include the Facebook “like” button. The company should start focusing on ways to dominate the smarthome and the smartcar – perhaps making a bid for a company such as Sirius XM or Pandora. The smartphone market has become too saturated, especially with Research In Motion’s resurgence and Amazon’s expected entry into the market.

Sure, Apple should just exit a product that, alone, is bigger than some Fortune 500 companies just because one guy can’t figure out what else can be dramatically different in the next iPhone let alone the “iPhone 10”.
