quote: Stock falling too, all while its main competition is firing on all pistons and developing circles around Apple. They are still profitable, but defintely peaked. If they dont come out with something compelling soon, sales will start to suffer.
quote: Dont put words into my mouth you know I didnt say. "failing" did not come out of my mouth and we have had this conversation before. You are well aware, I said sales will start to fall, not that the company will fail. If they dont do something soon to catch up to the rest of the world, the rest will pass them by and they will only be extremely profitable instead of the current record breaking profitable. I am talking features and functionality here anyhow, not profit.
quote: Also, 10% sales increase would be disastrous. That's even worse then the 2012 results and would signal ever more weakening sales and growth.The only escape hatches in sight are an iWatch in world which has steadily abandoned watches in favour of mobile phones, and a cheaper iPhone unit which will cannibalize higher margin sales but let them jack into a broader market for growth.

quote: I never said that, Tony. You really have this habit of putting words into people's mouth while pretending not to comprehend what they are saying, don't you?
quote: You predicted a ~66% drop in sales growth.
quote: It's 2013. We're not a generation of noob dumbasses anymore who can barely work a VCR clock.
quote: The Mac vs PC adds really went out of their way to make Apple users look like complete brainless morons. People who should just stay away from computing at all costs.
quote: " Wasn't Apple the #1 smartphone seller in America Q4 2012". May I add that apple in America is protected by judges and politicians, because they figure that apple is an Icon of America, what about the rest of the world. I don't see apple bragging about sales and profit outside American borders. America preaches Free Trade as long as their the beneficiary of the end result. I just see Protectionism at all cost.
quote: That is easy - becuase numerous idiots in charge want to be cool with their idevice.
quote: *nix based filesystems are inherently more secure because they are built on user and group access rights, including executable rights. How come, with all of apple's incredible sales numbers and "pathetically tech illiterate user base" has there only been a couple malware outbreaks. MALWARE. Thats not even a virus or a worm or anything akin to the things plaguing windows over the years. Seems like it would be a great ecosystem for 'hackers' to take advantage of.
quote: you know, with us illiterate researchers and medical students and veteran unix users.
quote: i'm still waiting for an ecosystem that compares to that of Apple's. Give me a killer objective SDK, hardware accelerated everything, *nix (bsd> linux) under the hood, and a base hardware set and i'll switch over in a second. why base hardware? so that you can do across the board updates for your approved devices incase someone finds a work around for something like a lock screen, but without having to accommodate for all the different hardware configurations that might complicate something like a OS update.
