Apple stock has plunged to another low today and the company is no longer the world’s most valuable, falling behind Exxon Mobil. But it is still the most valuable tech company...

It has been years since Apple has innovated any product.

The next iPhone will determine what direction apple will go. If the next iPhone is still a 4" or 4.5", apple stock will go down to $200.00 or lower!

The fall of Apple is a little misleading. I think its more of a hint of reality for those lovely investors who thought it was just a great idea to inflate the stock price of a company so much that it was ridiculously high. Now as they see competition in great array they run like bush men with their butts on fire.
I may not think Apple had the best to begin with but at the same time the company isnt going anywhere anytime soon. My guess is that competition will only get stronger and they might just end up near the top or high middle as a company. All that next big thing crap is a little overplayed as any coder in a garage can have that.

It's mainly because of their lack of innovation, the iPhone hasn't really changed since it was introduced, sure they added features here and there, but it was stuff that was already native to Android.
Android has more to offer because it acts more like a computer, you can plug it into your computer or download a file explorer and go through everything like you could a computer and the customization is exponentially greater.
While the iPhone is nice, Apple has really been holding themselves back on it instead of going all out. Its obvious that they're blinded by their own hubris as they still call iOS the most advanced mobile operating system when it obviously offers far less options than Android.
You can see why Apple's stock is falling, its their refusal to change and adapt to an ever changing market.

Apple has a few tricks up their sleeve.
It would be completely ignorant to say we are witnessing their "fall"

the simplistic reality in its play, what comes up has to come down, The only reason Apple did good, was because of Steve, the achiever and revilation of Steve Jobs, look at his previous Apple Releasings, suggest how much of thought and dedication he put into making Apple the best, now since hes gone Apple will fall down, Apple will plight the market but will find it hard to materialise the premium branding.

Are you kidding me? There isn't a company on the planet that wouldn't be happy to have 60% year-to-year net income growth, Apple included. And don't make the mistake of confusing share price with success. Yes, it's a proxy, but there's speculation built into that value. Until you start seeing net income in freefall Apple isn't failing.

On the 4th picture, what device type is that above android, apple, and blackberry? Surely not Windows phone!

I do hate Apple devices, but I don't want her fall.
If Apple lives, Samsung keep doing better devices, but cheaper.
