    me too. as much as i dislike the iphone, no phone will kill the iphone. the only thing that will, and probably already started to kill the iphone, is steve jobs. for the same reasons macs died in the early 90s.

    You are right. Ipads are selling like crazy, the new MacBook pros are selling out and having to be back ordered, Apple ran out of i5 and i7 chips for the new iMacs cause of how fast they were selling, iPhone sales are up again due to the 4.0 announcement and Apples stock is sky high....they are in serious trouble! Nice try troll.

    Trends only last so long. Get butthurt some more from your buyers remorse. At leastaandroid owners don't have to justify their purchases.

    Edited for you. Exactly how is this a trolling post if it's not even on an Apple forum?

    Right. The phrase "x killer" drives me nuts. No device will kill another device, unless it is a substantial upgrade of huge variety, and renders the old device obsolete.

    all the tech-writers like to put every new phone thats out(smart phones)as the x killer when they know alot of phones been better or just as good as the apple phone.

    Apple's not running out of these chips, Intel is. The success rate of the mobile i5/i7 cores aren't that high, even more when these chips have 2 cores cut out by apple. Which is stupid, it's not a real i7 if it only has 2 cores.

    The only reason I could see apple doing this is not being able to write proper code for it. Or maybe its that thing apple has against multitasking....

    Lol... iPads won't sell for crazy for very long. Tablets/e-readers are not a commodity market (like phones have become.) Most people will not buy an iPad or any other device like it, which means that eventually (I would guess < 6 months), iPad sales will be way down and new Macbook Pros will stop selling as well as they are now. Apple's stock is sky high for the moment, but that's always what it does around new releases... I won't discredit Steve Jobs because he is a marketing GENIUS. There is no doubt about that, and I will debate that until the cows come home... However, marketing is great for the short term, and stimulates demand in the short term... In the long run, we'll see the decline and settling and sales will be about the same as they have always been, if not lower... It's econ 101.

    A challenger appears!

    Right. Let me guess. You were probably one of the smart people who said the iPod was just a fad and wouldnt sell for very long right? I mean, there were tons of great MP3 players trying to copy it like the brilliant Microsoft Zune!! Its far superior to the iPod, just look at its specs! How are those Zunes selling compared to Ipods? LMAO, epic fail.

    Absolutely not... I was an early adopter of the iPods, and still own a 64GB touch. I had a Zune as well (3 brown ones actually, all w/ broken screens.) The iPod didn't have that many competitors when it entered the market either. By the time everyone caught up, iPod was already a household name... The market moves a LOT faster than it did in the early 2000's... The economy was a lot more stable then as well. Think about how many more tablet makers there are now than the number of mp3 player makers back then...

    True, problem for Apple haters is the iPad is already a household name as well. Did you know the iPad sold more units in its FIRST DAY than every other tablet has sold to this date combined? Not a good sign for the competition. So Apple haters can piss an moan all they want about what it doesnt do, not like they were going to buy one anyways. I think its clear people are buying it for what it CAN do.

    No, people are buying it because they are blind lemmings that will do whatever the idiot box tells them to. Do you know why the iPad sold more than any other tablet to date? Because tablets are useless pieces of crap and nobody with an ounce of grey matter actually wants one.

    So you think in this economy, people are just going to drop $500-$850 on something they dont want because they are told to? LMFAO. Dumbest post of the week, congrats.

    I promised myself not to get into this, but heck. That last part is exactly whats the problem. When the iPad was being sold on its first day with people wrapping around the block both here in NYC and in San Francisco, people were asked "so why are you getting one" 95 % said they didn't know why or that its just cool to have one. One even said "oh its pretty". Really? seriously?

    I'm starting to believe that. I've said it before, that woman running the aisle of mindless brainwashed people, throwing that hammer into the screen showing IBM is in itself Apple on the screen now a days.

    As for the grey matter reference, let me leave with this. There are more chromosomes in a potato than there is in a human being. Sad but true.

    Not to go too far off topic...but chromosome count does not equate to intelligence. They have nothing to do with each other.

    :D Sorry, if you really think that then you are only fooling yourself. There are plenty of people out there with more money than brains. There always have and there always will be.

    Wanna know what I'm tired of? Threads like this..... :mad:

    If people insist on pushing each others' buttons then they shouldn't be surprised to see posts that disagree. It also goes without saying (or should!) that they don't insult other contributors with terms such as "stupid", "idiotic" etc. This may be The Lounge but normal Forum rules still apply.

    I seriously question your train of thought here,

    People buying it for what it CAN do? Not a chance. 95% of people who lined up first day I guarantee bought it for it's looks and or name.

    I didnt buy it for USB port genius. Thats why I have my Macbook and my iMac :rolleyes: Hows that Android tablet working out?

    Oh wait...maybe you will finally get one in a year...

    From Google's site GAB

    Apple possesses a power that few other companies can claim: the ability to create markets. The iPhone has been a massive success, and the iPad appears to be headed in that direction, because Apple created something that people not only wanted, but obsessed over. Other companies, seeing the hysteria over Apple

    By the way, Apple ran out because Apple manufactures supply issues. It is common practice by corporations to ramp up desire for their product. Supply and demand, look it up, it is quite interesting.

    As for stocks being way up and that is a good thing and proof that they will not fall, I take it you do not follow anything in the stock market. LOL @ thinking that high stock prices make you invulnerable. LOL @ saying something is a real web browser even though it lacks Flash capabilities.
