Apple's Not Innovating Fast Enough

It's been six months since the last major product announcement from Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) , and the tech giant is allowing competitors to catch-up. Google's (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) Android, Samsung's Galaxy S4, and even Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) Windows Phone 8 have had time to improve products while Apple has largely sat on the sidelines. Erin Miller sat down with Travis Hoium to see what Apple needs to do to excite consumers and investors again.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.

    The answer to this question lies inside the pipeline that we can only glimpse from vendor leaks. It doesn't make sense for Apple to chase the hardware refresh rates of companies like Samsung who are mostly just doing hardware. Apple could be in trouble or doing great depending on what gets released this calendar year...sit back and take a ringside seat.

    The debate "raging" is baseless. Show me some real facts.

    Can't ? Right? Because there are none.

    Wait until the 23th of April and Apple will announce its earnings.

    Launching windows phones? you think that is a threat?

    Samsung stores in BestBuys. Wow! Apple should just give up now (do you know anything about the sales per square foot that Apple has for its stores? Only the highest in the world - better than Tiffany's)

    innovation being slowed at Apple? i doubt it.

    Why is there such a demand for innovation at Apple every six months? What innovation is any other phone company showing? A bigger phone? Is that real innovation?

    Let's see what Apple has to say on April 23 and then let's judge them then. Also we know that Apple will hold it ANNUAL Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Let's see what come out then.

    be patient grasshopper
