45 million iPhones? I don't believe what analysts say anymore. They're only saying this so Apple's stock can go back up.

Apple has peaked and it has nowhere else to go but down... All the iPhone/iPad users and stockholders at UBS can do whatever they want for damage control but they have to realize this...

What the hell is wrong with apple haters. Apple is a great company and great for buyers and sellers. I serioursly hope that Apple will be okay because it makes a great competition for the other companies.

And it makes even greater anti-competition, via lawsuits and bullying.

We hate them because they stifle innovation with all their ridiculous lawsuits. Just because you like them and think they are great does not mean we all do. I seriously hope they fold under and get out of the way. So the tech world can move forward without worrying about stupid lawsuits. Hope I google aapl tomorrow and see it at 400.

Please don't use the word innovate apple hadnt innovate anything except their ipods which put them on top of the market.

It took Android phone makers years to catch up to the level of innovation Apple brought with the iPhone, quit fooling yourself.

Suck it, Apple...

The fanboyism in these articles is just hilarious. When the stock goes up, or some analyst makes ridiculously high predictions, they say it's just worthless speculation. When the opposite is reported, despite retractions and facts proving otherwise, it's always the "truth". Make up your minds fanboys, you can't have it both ways.
