Change as Innovation: How do you know?

People saying that Apple didn’t innovate with the iPhone 5 are so clueless. They look at iPhone 5 pictures dans say: meh? They have to hold it an feel it before making any judgement. 

If Samsung is so “rapidly innovating” maybe it is because their original smartphones were so crappy and in need of major improvements. Who knows.

When does a device change is seen as an innovation instead of just a mere improvement? Where do you draw the line?

Why do we expect a “revolutionary” new phone every year or two? Is the 2012 BMW “revolutionary” compared with the 2011 versions? When’s the last time someone came out with a PC that was substantially different from its predecessors? It’s mostly been incremental upgrades, with maybe a big jump every 5-10 years or so (like the first iPhone came out). In what industry do we expect such quick innovation cycles?

There is no company on earth that is set up for the next ten years in the technology space like Apple is, and that’s mostly because Apple is one of the few companies to embrace the fact that to move forward, you have to compete with yourself and your own products.
