Apple appears to me like they are getting paranoid.. The see how fast the competition is catching up and there is no doubt they see Google/Android as a real threat. Not to mention the new windows stuff at the end of this year. This leads me to believe that maybe they don't have quite the big upgrades coming that analysists and all the apple fanboy's are predicting. They realize the iPhone isn't the only phone out there with touchscreen and applications. Remember the razr when it launched. "Everyone" *hit their pants over it and had to get it (me included). What happened? There was a huge increase in slim style phones and phones designed like it. Then came the iPhone. Again, "everyone" *hit their pants over it (and some still are). What has happened? There has been a huge increase in slim, touch screen phones (smartphones) and applications. There will be the next big thing "everyone" has to have at some point, but maybe Apple doesn't know what it will be (I know I don't) and is afraid they won't offer it first. So what are they gonna do? Go after the competition and try to take them down. They want complete control of the market and want to do it the cheapest way possible. Steve Jobs is a control freak. I really feel he thinks he can get every cell phone user in the world to purchase an iPhone. Well maybe not VZW users cause he won't bring it to VZW lol.
