LOL tio, i agree! The only reason steve jobs is "most valuable" is because if he ever gets sick or takes time away from apple, Jobs lovers freakout and sell their stock and MAC stock drops 27% in 24 hours. Apples most successful product launch ever (what brought them back from a sinking pit of bad performance) the iPOD wasn't design by steve jobs, The current CEO of Palm made the iPod and Jobs gets all the credit and all the glory. Steve jobs isn't that great, Apple as a company does good things, but you apple mactivists out there honestly think even 15% of that is because of steve jobs?..... really?

Big Brother has no power unless you hand it over to them. The difference between this and 1984 is the fact that you have a choice of whether to buy the iPhone or not. You don't like Big Brother...don't buy the iPhone. As for Jobs, I have to agree...I've never seen a company so tied to it's CEO than Apple. Steve Jobs gets sick and then stock goes down. If there is even a hint of him being sick, stock goes down. I think he needs to spend a good amount of time away from the lime light and let someone else take over because eventually, Apple is going to have to do without him. At the same time, everyone seems to be obsessed with him. So no matter how much he may want to not be in the public eye, the media forces him to be that.

Apple needed the i-phone to resurrefct their company because the iMac was killing them to do being 2 damn expensive. the i-phone has revolutionalized the cellphone industry, but hasnt doen much to change its appearance physically or internally. android has gained alot of popularity as well as comapnies that carry the software like HTC, motorola, and samsung. the i-phone needs to do something to stay above the pack or android could put them out of business. its bad enough AT&T has restricted the i-phone from what it can REALLY do, but i look at the i-phone and say "blah, its boring" because its almost old technology these days

iPhone = RAZR burn! Apple is dong the same thing Motorola did with the RAZR series. I'm glad Motorola created the RAZR and was cool at the time, but they leaned too much on it. Instead of releasing the "next big thing" it was just carbon copy over and over. Apple has released 3 different iPhones and they're all basically the same, just a little tweaking here and there and Apple is like "oh look, our new iPhone!" ...whatever. Android has several devices to choose from, not to mention on ALL CARRIERS. iPhone has just one model and one carrier...not alot to choose from there. If Apple doesn't come up with something new (other than the stupid iPad) the iPhone is going to be like the bubble gum that lost its flavor.
