quote: Agree if you had one person mention Apple your conversation was dominated with all Apple talk now its but a whisper and they are either in denial or you can hear the retreat in their voice as they know there are products on the market that rival them or are flat out better. The confidence that Apple was way ahead of everyone is gone to but a few fans. I just read an article that Apple tablet sales are starting to slide in market share which now you have iphone 5 sales warnings, tablet sales warnings, and now you have comparable products at nearly half the price of Apple in an economic recession. Im a huge fan of Microsoft but I use an Android tablet and like it. I especially love that I get all the functionality I want without the hefty price. This is why I think Microsoft failed with Surface RT because the price should have been $300 or less at $500 for RT its not smart. Im also not sure I need another tablet either I don't want to play crisis on my phone or tablet. I want to play words with friends or something along those lines if I was to play graphic intensive games and get serious I want to do it on my PC.BTW Windows Phone is now 3.1% in the US. Doesn't sound like much but market share is increasing now even in the USA.I personally believe Android has the best Tablet OS just have to get a good hardware manufacturer. I still believe Microsoft has the best Phone OS and to me personally again the Nokia 920 is a slightly better device than the Samsung Galaxy S3. But were about to go another round so hit the reset button. To me if your considering an iPhone your old and looking for an entry level smartphone if your more serious your looking for the next Samsung with android or the nokia pureview camera for windows phone.
quote: Right, so declining share price is not a sign of floundering. I guess I've just learnt something new today.
quote: Share prices can rise and fall, and indeed do, for reasons that have no relationship to the business prospects of the business concerned.
quote: For example many companies lost a lot of share value when the markets crashed in 2008, almost none of which had anything to do with actual business prospects of the businesses concerned.
quote: Why has the share price declined? That is hard to say, using any usual objective calculation method employed to assess a companies worth Apple is woefully undervalued.
quote: Honestly, I only come here because I check Anand. I strongly wish Anand would repurpose the links, even for another - better - tech news site.
quote: It's odd to go from Anand's very in-depth articles to these seemingly arguement-inducing articles where commenters become mortally offended by tech-enthusiasts engaging in any sort of intellectual discussion that strays from what the few trolls demand must be true when often its just cheerleading.
quote: I like tech for tech. Microsoft doesn't get an auto-greenlight from me nor does Google Apple or anyone else. I have a preference based on my experience and your mileage may vary. So what.
quote: Especially now that anandtech has it's "pipeline" articles handling all the technical stuff.
quote: To be truthfull, if anandtech took off the news ticker to DT at the side i'd stop coming here after a short while.
quote: Pretty much. I go into some video card or case thread, dead zone. You figure people would love to talk about some cool PC parts but nope, hardly anything at all.
quote: You go into a troll Apple, environment, or car thread and its all the same chuckleheads.
quote: Well honestly, when is the last time a new video card or case actually interested you? I think the last big "WoW" in video cards was, what, the 9700 Pro? I mean something that wasn't just an iteration of last week's thing, with a bit more FPS or throughput.We're jaded, completely.
quote: *Sniff* hmmm.. *sniff* yup, picking up a strong scent of butthurt here.
quote: Because DailyTech makes money on all the anti-Apple people who come into the topics to mock the company, post drab and tired invective, and argue with Tony and "talkinyourpoints".
