This always happens to Apple stock on announcement day. And, even when the herd is disappointed, they all rally behind each other because they know not doing so would mean that their precious stock investments would be totally and utterly annihilated; it's like when everyone rallied against George W to re-elect him, they knew it was wrong but they wanted to show a united front. Same united front here.

When you have set a certain president with yourself, you must remain at that level or forfeit the command. I feel Apple grew too big, too fast in the last 7 years. It has usually held very low marketshare most of its 30 year tenure. The very person that brought his vision to an ailing company, is gone. They now have been dealt the huge task of retaining this position. With Steve gone, I don't feel it has the ingredients to hold on to the top position no matter how big it is. The company was founded by Steve and built around him. He lived Apple and Apple followed him. He was the common denominator in Apple's most celebrated moments.

Yeah. What are those stupid iInvestors thinking. Who would ever want to make money? Much smarter to sit on the sidelines and complain about it(?)...
You don't have to like Apple to make money on Apple.

The phone itself is not everything. You need a strong ecosystem to be successful. Just look at Amazon tablets, they are very poor compared to N7 but many will buy them b-c of Amazon online store.
Nokia must go with Android in parallel with WP to be successful, with all innovation Nokia has shown it's not too late.

Poor? Have you READ any of the reviews? The only complaints are regarding the Kindle OS, and how it compares with JB on the Nexus7.

of course I read some, the Verge gave N7 8.8 while Kindle Fire HD 7 got 7.5, and that's with the ecosystem as a factor.

i had to reply this... it's Nokia's fault... it brought the best late... it disregarded Meego and N9... the only good thing it did was remain proud of it (did not go with Android) and that's why i will remain with Nokia...

why so bothering about "Thumb(s) Down". Just say it. It is the net, anyone or anything can just thumbs you down to abuse or get abused by u. So better ignore it and just say whats in ur mind.
In the net, it is not matter bout the status, you get so many thumbs down even you said a very objective thought.
Just ignore it and be u.

Its opposite day today, Apple was supposed to bring innovations, but didn't
and stock was supposed to go down, but went to up
I seriously do not understand this,
Nokia had real innovations

Am I the only one who thinks the design could have been a little better thought out? It looks way too tall to me.

That's all people care about with Apple; stock prices instead of phones. I don't know how good or how bad Samsung is doing in their homeland but I now their kicking Apples butt on their home court.
Apple is destined to screw up and the walls will crumble down. Apple is going to stick with that display and body for 2 years minimum while Android phones sale like hotcakes. And the only one to blame is Apple.

No. In most cases such stocks are manipulated. By traders.

I feel more people with go for the iPod touch. Now could actually have all the functionality without the phone part.
