    Some people, not as many.

    The combination of Apple reducing the size of their orders for notmePhone component parts and releasing a whole bunch of new models right on the heels of their last "next big thing" release makes it look like Apple is getting desperate.

    Oh..now Exxon is overtaking Apple to retake the lead as the world's largest corporate entity. Can you say "peaked"? :D

    I've been through enough economic downturns to know that status symbols (and cheap knock-offs of the same) sell well up to a point. The longer the downturn lasts, the less able the reality-challenged are able to actually pay for those costly show-off items.

    Apple hitched its wagon to a shooting star; what goes up must come down. That's how the ball bounces...

    Back in 2008, 2009, 2010 you could go out and Buy and Iphone and have it be relevant for awhile. Now you buy an Iphone and it's already a year behind the Droid and then apple comes out with something "better" in 6 months.

    I'm pretty sure I read something about Tim Cook saying there's no need to go larger than 4inch.



    Also, I don't know if a cheaper iPhone is necessary..unless it's cheap in the same way the iPad mini is....i.e. not very.

    When I first read about the iPhone Math it was supposed to be high end I thought, but with a bigger screen. I'd like to see them diversify their lineup personally even though it would take an awful lot for me to ever go back to iOS.

    I don't think I'd go to iOS. I don't mind the actual products (although the iPhone and iPad and just about everything else is bad and worse than cheaper equivalents) but i just hate Apple.

    I hope they can't get a trademark on the word "Math" ;)

    How is Apple going to deal with all of this "fragmentation"? lol

    I loathe Apple - they're an absolutely horrible company - but I'm not sure I buy the Apple-is-going-down story just yet: the numbers for the last quarter didn't meet market expectations (read: greedy b*stards hopes and guesses) and profits were flat, but they actually sold more i-devices in the quarter than they sold in the equivalent FOUR quarters of the previous year.

    You can't really call that failure. You also can't expect that kind of growth to continue forever - one economist calculated that if Apple continued to grow revenues at the same pace it has in the last 5 years, in a couple of years time it would be worth more than the entire Australian economy.

    On the other hand, all of Apple's markets are now saturated or very near saturation, so they do need to come up with something new to maintain any kind of growth. Not sure I see Apple TV as the answer .. particularly given TVs have been a saturated market for 30 years.

    Cue apple marketing to try and get them more sales for their iShite phones. I'm not evan sure apple know the meaning of 'high end' they are just part of a good ole 'carry on' in my book, carry on copying android because we can't innovate anymore.

    Apple really needs to do something about diversifying there market. Just because they aren't reaching the edges of the market. They are basically only hitting one type of consumer.

    They have been talking about diversifying for so long now, about time they actually did something about it.

    I would like to see them bite the dust and just let Google rule the world though :rolleyes:

    I think this would be the worst thing that could happen to Android. Without competition, do you think Google would really try to push the envelope? Or hardware OEMs?

    However, Apple could make things interesting by licensing iOS. Although that would be completely out of character for them. But I doubt Apple does anything groundbreaking for a long time. If their advertisments are to show their motives, they make a large deal out of features that have been on smartphones for years.

    I don't think Apple really needs to diversify, they're probably hitting their desired customers already. Where I am, I wouldn't expect Rolex, Mont Blanc, Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Cartier to diversify. And TBH I wouldn't really expect any different from Apple. Because to do so would cheapen the brand and damage their prestige and perceived cachet.

    Haha.. yes. :D

    Well the company formerly known as Apple Computer, Inc. has diversified to the point that it's selling more handheld doodads than computers. Isn't it enough of a miracle that this one-trick mule has offspring at all?
