    Default Apple's "smart shoes" notify users when they need replacing

    Even for Apple this is strange

    Quote
    An interesting Apple patent application discovered on Thursday describes a sensor and alarm system that can be embedded into footwear, granting users a more empirical method on which to rely when deciding to replace worn-out shoes.

    The worse part is it probably isnt a joke. They will apply for this and get granted the patent to shoes, then will claim they invented shoes and feet!

    Has anyone even noticed that Apples going down hill ? I was wataching the news on TV the other day, and their stock has continued to fall since Sept, I believe it just dropped another 12 points.
    I have never cared for Apple products, and never will.

    The bottom has to fall out at some point. You cant continue the growth without truely being innovative. You saturate a market and people get tired of dealing with your crap and move on. The are facing stiffer and stiffer competition from other OEMs. They havent came out without anything really special in years, just updates of existing products. If they want to continue on the path they were on they really really need to come upw ith something. Tvs and shoes are not it.
