Applemania rules! Besides its pioneering designs, Apple is also leveraging its buying power--which is growing daily. Hewlett Packard remains the #1 OEM buyer of semiconductor chips right now, but iSuppli predicts that Samsung will slip to #3 behind Apple by 2011 and by 2012 that Apple could overtake HP to become the #1 buyer of integrated circuits. Every consumer electronics maker want to get onto this high demand/low cost bandwagon. HP is already playing catch-up ball by acquiring the WebOS which it will integrate with its PC, touchscreen tablet and Palm phone in like manner to Apple's OS integration to the Mac, iPad and iPhone. Also Samsung, Dell, Sony and a dozen others will be doing the same by 2012. Applemania rules!

Apple is a master at coming out with great new products just as the previous products are starting to get stale. The iPhone 4 antenna problems will be a distant memory soon. They are entitled to at least one mistake in their iPhone product line aren't they?
