I don't see much benefit of a company lying about sales figures.  It all becomes clear on quarterly earnings call.  If sales of a product is low it will eventually show up in the accounting books as lowered revenue.  I'm sure consumers don't care how many smartphones a company sells, so who would Samsung be trying to impress by fudging its own or rival company sales numbers.

Android is the platform for those companies who are too cheap to actually pay for a fully licensed product.  Instead of going to the store to pay for cigarettes, those companies are just picking discarded butts off the ground.

All he has to do now is lose that damn BlackBerry and get himself an iPhone 5.  Michelle ought to gift him one for his birthday.  BBs may be secure, but for everything else, they're pretty antiquated.

It is truly amazing that the haters continue to say that Apple is doomed and the company is about ready to collapse despite the company growing wealthier by the day.  If Apple is ready to collapse, then what about Dell, H-P, Nokia, RIM, etc.  Companies that have far less revenue and reserve cash.  It's always Apple.  I often wonder what is the matter with these people's brains to always choose Apple as the first company to fail.  Maybe it has something to do with the dot-com era where large companies quickly tanked as investors panicked.  However, Apple doesn't even have much overhead and its product line is relatively small.


You say it's jealousy, but it really has to do with stupidity.  Apple product sales are high because lots of people willingly go to buy them.  It's hard to imagine a scenario where tens of millions of people just decide to buy some other product overnight.  There really can't be that many iHaters, though.  The average consumer merely wants to get a good product for a reasonable price.  Good customer service goes a long way to owning any product.

Although the article seems to make sense showing impressive Apple product growth over the past several years, then why does Wall Street have a valuation of Apple indicating zero growth over the next couple of years.  Also, the article talks about Apple's halo effect for products thanks to all those products working well together, Wall Street, in fact, claims that all of Apple's products will be commoditized by competitor's cheaper products and Apple will be left with nearly no customers.  Why is it that Wall Street sees a completely different outlook for Apple than many of the Apple bulls?  Wall Street giving Apple a P/E of 14 is pricing its growth in line with Microsoft's growth.  Currently, Apple has an even lower P/E than Microsoft.  Why is that?  Shouldn't Apple have a P/E of at least 16 or 18 which would seem appropriate enough?  Wall Street doesn't see any boost for Apple despite the iPad.

 @Cec That is one ginormous paragraph, dude.  It's like looking at the state of Alaska.  Anyway, good luck with your ZunePad Pro.  You and a handful of others will probably love it death before it get's discontinued for lack of buyers.
