Apple still is top dog in profit margins and that's much more important. You bring up that Android (Google) has 70% of the market share (for a software platform) and mention that Apple (a single company) has only 20%, but it would be much more fair to compare Apple to each individual company. Don't forget in 2012 Apple took home 60% of the profits, Samsung had 39%, HTC took roughly less than 1%, and Sony had a very small profit.

I think you missed or ignored his first sentence comparing apple to Samsung. If apple has such little market share and so much profit, doesn't that imply they are gouging their customers by selling an inexpensive item with Korean parts for a high price?

Is it really gouging customers if they're willing to pay for a product they enjoy? No one forces people to buy Apple's products; it's strictly left up to the consumer.

Considering that profit allows apple to use legal maneuvers to seek bans on the competition.....its not really up to the consumer. Apple's lawyers limit choice and suppress competition.

iNNOVATION? Been a while since that word and the word APPLE could be used together, in the same sentence. Please do not refer Apple as innovative as they are a marketing company.

admit it or not. Nokia is one of the best Mobile Manufacturer as of today.thats the reason why other mobile manufacturer (HTC, Samsung, LG, Blackberry, Apple, Moto etc..) strive hard to compete with thier new, fresh and powerful products.and that is the reason why other manufacturers study the meaning of INNOVATION. for me Nokia really deserves to stay in the competition...

See what I did there?

i wouldnt even call apple a manufacturer, they are a marketing firm that makes their money sueing everybody else because they have patents on everything but refuse to use those patents to actually make anything substantial with it. Steve Jobs was a genious but he was the bully of the technology world.

That's your hope, but not the way big business works. When you make a profound statement like that, you should also back it up with some credible research. Apple has billions, and the partners, and the know how. They simply need to stop being comfy. Your posts as usual make little to no sense. -1

ill agree with what you said man. If apple is going to die it is going to be avery long and painful death. They may be making some wrong moves now but they do have a long while to correct themselves before they cross the point of no return. We shall see over the course of the next 2-3 years if they are on their way out or if they are here to stay, but all in all nothing lasts forever.

Well said bro. You're exactly rite, they have time to right their ship, but this year is very important in that task. +1

I don't think people realize how big this year is to apple. If they screw up big this might be that point. But lets be realistic though. Apple is apple with over 150 billion in the bank. They just need to put a little effort into it and they will be selling at new records all over again.
