Tim Cook: New Product Categories Still Coming in 2014

NewImageDuring today's fourth quarter earnings call, Tim Cook confirmed that Apple still plans on introducing new product categories within 2014.

According to Cook, Apple believes that it can use its skills building software, hardware, and services to create "great products" in categories that Apple does not participate in today. "We're pretty confident about that," said Cook.

Apple has been rumored to be working on a number of innovative products, including a smart watch dubbed the iWatch, which will compete with offerings from several other companies like Nike, Jawbone, and Samsung, along with a potential Apple television set.

Apple's iWatch is rumored for a 2014 release, while a possible release date for a television set has been more hazy. The company is also possibly working on other offerings within the television sector, including a potential set-top box that replaces traditional cable boxes.

When the iWatch comes out you can bet it'll be way better than that watch Samsung released. That was truly embarrassing.

I need Apple to invent something that I didn't know I needed but will not be able to live without. I can't imagine what it could be but I hope they come up with it soon.

That was basically iPad.

If people here actually knew exactly what that new product would be MS and others would already be making it.

Galaxy Gear? We see how that turned out.

Samsung working without an Apple blueprint is lost.
