It will stop at $666 and then drop all the way to hell.

Yeah, if Zul returns, and iFans have to choose the form of our demise, then we won't be getting anything so benign and harmless as a giant Stay-Puffed marshmallow man...

According to iFans, when Google does it it's ironic, but when Apple does it it's iconic...

actually according to android fans, whatever apple does is satan's touch while google is never wrong…. case in point comment numero uno

but i digress… apple is successful as a business… their stock will probably reach a peak high and then dip a little, eventually leveling out

Apple certainly has set a new standard.... but here is the problem. They release a new noteworthy product twice a year, iPad and the iPhone, and when the handset becomes accessible it will just be a run of the mill handset. Initially, when the iPhone was only available on AT&T it was sought after by a whole lot of people, because it was exclusive and rare. However, since it's opened up to numerous carriers and probably all carriers one day it'll be like Blackberry or Palm. The beauty of Android and even Windows is that it's an open OS. Then you have more unique handsets to attract attention, different sized screens and sizes, and UI's. There is a phone to fit every type of personality, but with Apple, it's just one look.

but the thing is its not really a problem… most people like the one option apple gives.. they dont need all the other options.. and if they do then there are alternatives like android and wp..

all good things come to an end... or at least a reduced lifespan... look at the auto industry, RIM, Palm, Kodak, analog media manufacturers, the physical music media industry... nothing is forever, despite things that make it seem like a company is unstoppable. People change interests, technology keeps evolving, and companies fall by the wayside if/when they can't keep up

I agree with you.

When companies become greedy, it's the beginning of their downfall.

That's true, BUT a company has to evolve if it wants to survive and the names you mentioned did not. Everything comes to an end but there are companies out there that managed to stay in business for half century no problem. Keep up with times and you'll be ok.

Eventually it will be the people who give all that money and credit to Apple... the real rich folks, like EU parliament members, Swiss bankers, Builderbergers, Russian mob bosses, Colombian cartel commanders, Qatari Mullahs, and the Rothschild family financiers, among others, buy Vertu Symbian phones, apparently.
