I don't want to see microwaves and dishwashers when I walk into an Apple Store. Apple is the world's largest tech company and individual smartphone manufacturer the world. They already have more cash on hand than the US government. Their stores are more profitable, per square foot, than any other businesss. I think they'll be just fine if they continue doing what they are already doing and stick with computers, electronics and software. :)

I would love an Apple microwave! I bet it would have triple the RAM of my current one ;)

There is no logical reason why Apple, one if, if not the, most successful electronics companies worldwide, would start manufacturing and selling home appliances. I'm definitely with Mindi on this one.

I agree Apple should do appliances and also car stereos and even a sync like situation in vehicles. Just have a separate division. Lg does it , Samsung too. So why not

I'm against this. I really hope they stick to just what they are doing now.
Well that logic would have told them to stick to just Macs. So their would never have been iTunes ipods and then iPhone ipad. Companies like this need to branch out. Their is only so much growth in a segment

GE has twice the amount of cash as Apple ( seems everyone wants that to be a point lately Apple vs govt) and does it all. Appliances. Electronics. Big equipment. Everything. They started out small also.

To me it wud be very weird to see a company sells high-end IT stuff selling home appliances.

Companies like LG, Samsung specialise more on home appliance. Their marketing for mobile devices is not as aggresive as Apple's as it is not their companies primary profit product. Also, it would not be easy to market a product that's not multi-function like the current products Apple markets.

It would be interesting though to know what Apple may launch, juz wait.. 
