The Apple bubble is about to burst... Bringing out 1 smartphone a year, ain't gonna cut it, if that phone has flaws "out the box". Look at Samsung, working with Windows and Google, my point being, Apple stands alone... Diversity plays a big roll and not only in the stock market. Apple should be making three iphones a year a 3.5", a 4.5", and a 5.5"er. Bringing one out in the spring, one in the summer, and one in the fall.

Well all I can do is hope they go under. I've guided quite a few people away from Apple and IOS, and continue to do so, so I like to think I've contributed to their decline. No matter how minuscule my actions might have been.
Big things have small beginnings.....

I love all these "exactly like I predicted" posts. Pssh, give me a break. Look, I'm all android, all the way. Some people are $heep (admittedly so), and that's fine too. Apple will be fine, because even as their loyalty may be shown to be diminishing, it's still higher than android's. There are LOTS of lemmings out there. I just hope I can make a pretty penny off of the ones buying apple goods. If you can't beat 'em, buy their stock and profit.

It's basic human psychology. People love bubbles. We feed the bubbles. We love to see the bubbles reach immense record setting proportions. We live vicariously through the bubbles.
Until... eventually the bubble can no longer support it's own growth. It collapses in upon itself. Now people feel bad, so they dog-pile on to the next expanding bubble to feel good about themselves again. All the time wondering how they could not see the burst coming. But this next bubble, it's a sure thing, a good bet, a solid investment surely... Wash, rinse, repeat.
It's like people have learned nothing from the dot com, housing, banking, etc. bubbles.
People just love bubbles.
