what come up must come down. Fruit company need to come up new that revolutionary product and I'm sure they will. Average revolutionary come every 7-10 years, that mean we will still see the same old Iphone UI for next 2 years.

That is why they are starting to get their profits in the court. Sue sue sue sue sue sue. And sue. Amd because American juries are all stupid. They are gonna win win win win win win. And win.
