i think what apple's big bubble simply shows is how overpriced their products are, and that people are just too mesmerized to not notice they're being cheated on ahahahaha.. . .

the reason that is more ixpensaive is the brand... or do you actually believe Calvin Klein pants are made by angels... is the brand you are buying.. the iphone is more expensive because of the apple on the back..
ps.. thats why the XOOM didnt sell ..and Apple can named their price...

That's what happens when you have willing buyers and willing sellers for a premium product.
Apple will not make crappy products -- it only wants to make the best products it can for its consumers and the chart shows all those willing buyers.
