I’ve been desperately hoping since Steve Jobs death that Apple would be able to maintain the genius without him. There are so many small things starting to go philosophically sideways with Apple, it looks like it’s going to be an eventual death by 1000 cuts. But as with everything, another company will fill the vacuum that get’s left. Xiaomi, Huawei, Samsung and OnePlus are all doing interesting hardware. If Cyanogen or similar can become a design focused company it would be great to see a new young upstart software company in the mobile marketplace.
