We all know Apple and Microsoft are great companies. However, Apple has been falling behind in the recent years ever since the tragic passing of Steve Jobs. CNBC Michelle Fox says, “Yes, they’re still number one in terms of hardware manufacturing but in terms of software, in terms of igniting the imagination, they are falling behind.” In other words, Apple has not come up with anything unique or original in years.
In my opinion, the last thing Apple created that was truly innovative was the original iPad, which was released in 2010. Apple has brought better Versions to the market. For example, the iPad Air is thinner and lighter. The specs are “2x Faster CPU performance, 2048 X 1536 resolution with retina display, and 3.1 million pixels with 1GBs of RAM.”

Now Microsoft has not been quite about their Surface Pro 3. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is a tablet/ computer that can out run, $100 cheaper, and be 2X faster/better than the iPad & the Macbook air.

On the other hand, unless you’ve been living under a rock you heard that Apple held a special event on september 9th 2014. Apple has unveiled the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, and the long-awaited iWatch. The iWatch has been the biggest step for Apple in a very long time. This product is truly innovative. when you hear the name iWatch you may think “oh it’s just a iPhone on my wrist just in smaller scale.” In truth the iWatch does have certain apps that are also on the iPhone.
For example, you can to get directions, text(voice recognition), and an entirely new feature where you can sketch, “tap” abstract shapes to your friends and family. Another thing I love about this feature is that you can send your heartbeat to the person you are talking to.
