NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Recently, an article caught my eye that seemed utterly off base.

The way I've been perceiving Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) innovation is absolutely through incremental developments. Developments that seem achingly slow in the current time end up aggregating to something much more than we could have imagined in the long run. Along the way, breakthroughs happen naturally thanks to Apple's passion for integrating hardware and software into an elegant human interface.
