Wait a minute, wait a minute @ginidietrich. Am I missing something or couldn't the faster rates of adoption of mobile devices over pcs/macs/laptops be because the same group (which is a minority) of early adopters keep trading in the old smartphones for the new, while us mainstream majority folks are holding on to our laptops longer? This is as bad as the news I got in 2008 that printed newspapers were dead, followed closely in 2009 that the paper hardcover book was dead. Still reading both in print and enjoying it.

Agreed Gini, but having worked in corporate America, I don't have much faith or trust in them anymore. Profits first. It's ironic, this foolish action. Had they put people/ethics before profits in the day-to-day decisionmaking, they'd see long-term gains and sustainability. This short-term tactic of lying/sweeping under rug to keep current profits intact only shortchages companies, by shuttering a consequence into the future, only making the financial impact that much greater and the reputational impact insurmountable.
