You would think after five years, the analyst(s) would get the decline in iPhone sales due to new model introduction.

That's strange because the iPhone is usually released in the second half of the year, the same time Apple is prepping suppliers to reduce production.

I would think that Apple would get a clue and do more than release a model refresh every other year. Memo to Timmy: Dogs don't like stale dog food. There are two other viable alternative dog food options that are providing tasty alternatives to your company's dog food.
Time to stop trying to suppress the competition.

That's actually a potential 25% loss isn't it?

Exactly what I was talking about in the Samsung+HTC article comments. Now if this slowdown affects the big companies like Samsung and Apple, who will continue to make huge profits anyway, imagine how badly this is going to hit the small guys who barely have any money, lack huge marketing budgets and are barely making profit as is e.g. Sony, Nokia, etc...

Lol, you're so delusional it's quite scary. Look kid, Samsung may have lost a few customers to Sony IN THE UK, that barely affects them, the sooner you realize that the better. I know it's hard for you to accept the fact that your favorite manufacturer simply cannot compare Apple and Samsung.
