quote: WP8 has the simplistic single color icons and Android 4 icon graphics are similar to Apple's.
quote: Android 4 definitely does not scroll any smoother than iOS, iOS is still a tad bit better in that regard.

That's essentially what happened to its Macs in the 1990s.Not saying that will happen for sure, but the danger to Apple's future growth is high, even if it is banking record-shattering profits.
