If you like other products, buy those. There is definitely competition in the industry. The reason Apple has done well is because they made a high quality product that people liked. But, other companies have all rights to do the same. Those that make something good will gain traction. The market is pretty efficient and will figure out what's good and what's not. As for cheaper products, there are plenty to be had. But its not necessarily the best thing to devalue the high end.

Is this precursor to long awaited iPhone5? Apple may get different parts for iPhone5.

I guess I had better get those iPhone 4s orders placed soon, while I can still get them!

Exactly what has apple done that you despise? I kept an open mind for years and when I finally got to use iPhones and MacBooks they are just another computer. Good ideas yes, nice style, yes, worth the money? Yes if you have it, no if you don't. Like anything else really.

A company is build to last. I am sure Steve Jobs has this vision in mind when he build Apple Computer. It would be really difficult to believe Apple would fall after Jobs passed away. Towards the end of the article, the author gives a pretty good explanation - due to competition and bad economy, Apple is pulling back.

Actually I hope Apple does "go in flames." More competition is better for the industry. If tablets and phones from other companies finally gain some traction it will mean cheaper devices that more people buy, meaning more chips sold, more software sold, etc. Apple right now takes a huge chunk of that pie, which is great for them, but only good for their partners and actually bad for their consumers.

Well, you can't really blame the bad economy on the death of Steve Jobs, goafrit. It's tough for most companies out there at the moment, and I'm sure Apple is still doing absolutely fine. The firm seems to just be taking precautions so as not to get saddled with excess inventory while consumers are having to pinch pennies. It's tough all round.

The end of Steve Jobs era - the magician is gone and we hope Apple does not go in flames.
