Predicting Apple's future!

by ThomasHuizing / January 1, 2014 12:52 AM PST

Hello everyone,
First of all sorry for my bad English. My name is Thomas and I am a 16 Year old from Holland. I'm in my graduation year and I have a profilepaper to make.

I'm writing an essay about Apple's succes and their marketing techniques. Also I am trying to predict Apple's future by looking at the products they now have, the form of their company and the importance of the contribution of Steve Jobs.

I thought I would be interesting to set up an on-line list where people can give their opinion about some questions I have. I will work out all of the opinions in my essay and the conclusion will be made with help of the results I will get here.

So if you have some spare time en would like to answer a few questions for me, please.

Although it is funny to give weird answers, I would really like to get some serious opinions with strong arguments.

Question 1: customer demands
What are you looking for in mobile devices and is Apple still capable of filling those needs in the future?

Question 2 : innovative power
With his death and importance Steve Jobs had for Apple, do you think Apple will still continue to innovate and shock the audience as they used to do?

Question 3 : market position
Will Apple in ten years still be capable to compete against smartphone company's like Samsung? And if so, why?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
