Let's see, they revolutionized they way computers look, they revolutionized the MP3 player, smart phones, media creation for the average home user, data transfer, customer service... Hm, yeah, they didn't do anything.



Their computers WILL do exactly what is asked. Bravo for not knowing what you're talking about.



Yeah, we'll see. Though "Think Different" hardly worked for them in the 90's, I think Apple knows where it's headed, or at least has a general idea.




Oh, really? Because googling also turns up billions of results for "PC" related problems. Far more than Apple. And they don't make a real computer? What's a fake computer then? No modern, usable processor? They use the same Intel processors many people on this site use.

Lacking industry standard apps? Let's see:
Office: Check
Adobe Products: Check
Web: Check
Media: Check

And you DO realize that Apple was one of the first to commit to Bluray over HDDVD, right?


Jesus. The amount of FUD people on thsi site spew is amazing. Apple has a place in the market, and whether you like it or not, has been a huge influence on current tech.
You do realise that there are more pc's than macs, you wouldnt complain about there being for chevys in the shops than ferraris?

I believe Apple's stock is greatly overvalued, and what keeps it there is the positive sentiment created by the success of all the i products. If you look at the basics then Apple isn't worth that much.

Overall I wouldn't touch Apple's stock, I think it's at a dangerous position. If Apple even fail slightly once, the PPS will be greatly effected.

Does it really matter? The failure percent on Apple products is fairly low for industry standards.

For instance:
Shoppers and list-makers may be interested to learn that Asus and Toshiba notebooks had three-year failure rates below 16 percent. Sony placed third, with a 16.8 percent three-year failure rate, followed by Apple (17.4 percent), Dell (18.3 percent) and Lenovo (21.5). Acer and Gateway came in just under 24 percent, and Hewlett-Packard, which is the world’s largest producer of PCs, came in last, with a 25.6 percent failure rate over three years.

Ok. USB. Firewire. User Interface (such as multi-touch). Sorry, but iPod's did revolutionize the MP3 player. They weren't the first to make them, but after they did, everyone tried copying it. OS X has been a major influence on Windows 7.

Again, another person that doesn't know what they're talking about.

Apple does have a place in the market right now, no doubt about that. However, the important part is how sustainable it is. They will run out of products that they can revolutionize. And what will happen if Steve Job's gone?

Apple and bang for the bucks doesn't mix well.
Then again not everyone's crazy about getting the most for bang for their bucks, some people just have more money they want to spend, or are more willing to spend.

Well, if Steve Job's doesn't find a successor that can keep up with what he's done, then yes, Apple will most certainly fall by the wayside, or at the very least be less of an impact in Consumer products.

I think he'd probably have his desinger (Jonathan Ives) take over, but that's all up in the air until Jobs actually retires.

What I'd like to see Apple do in the future is open up and embrace "clone" manufacturers. Allow other companies to use OS X on their machines. But that won't happen until Jobs is gone and dead, I'm sure.

How much did Apple's value drop when it was rumored that Steve Job's was sick?
Once again...

Apple is a great company. The key is excitement. No much you can do when almost 70% of shares owned by institutional and mutual Fund Owners. Right now, they had done everything right but watch out if they make a little mistake. You can guess what would happen if they decide to allocate fund or rotate to different sector/funds/stocks. For now, most are watching major support levels.
