    I would be pretty worried if I were Apple. They're becoming a 1-trick pony. The iPhone is by a far margin their main, seemingly only product. They might be happy with this success given the prices of that product tend to tie-in their customers down for a year or two. But when the competition excels with their next product line it will have a dramatic effect on shares. Apple needs to stay on top of their A-game in the phone market to succeed as a business. I'd look towards some significant innovations in the next iPhone product.

    Big whoop. Just because you are the biggest, doesn't necessarily mean you are the best.
    Marketing, hype, media attention, driven towards consumerism, and the narcissistic nature of the
    average person these days, along with twitter, facebook and other social media, cause said people
    to go nuts, before they even see it.
