With the struggling economy in the US and elsewhere looking like the struggle is getting harder while more of the strugglers are starting to buy fruit, the apple could eventually get dragged into the lime war, at least in the US if nowhere else, once the competition between limes gets to a certain price vs benefits level out of sheer economics due to trickle down technology causing prices to drop while profits remain the same . Here in the US if we have a choice between a free phone vs a paid phone while signing a contract for both is a requirement the chances of a free phone being the purchase, then griping for the entire contract time about it sucks are a large possibility. That day is soon in the American tablet world as well. We want our technology and we want it as cheap as possible. When you compare a $600 apple against a $600 lime the apple will win more times than not . When you compare a $600 apple against a $200 lime that will do the same basic things (surf the net, check email, play Angry Birds, etc) at about the same level is a different story. The purchaser of the $200 lime may complain forever that it sucks but will probably buy another $200 lime of a different brand from a different store to replace it.
The average fruit consumer has no clue which fruit is better other than which looks shinier on the shelf or what their friends/coworkers tell them is shiniest. The average consumer will buy based on price and in order to sell more limes the lime sellers are cutting prices, not to cut sales of apples but to sell more limes in their store, which could have the trickle down effect of cutting some apple store sales .
Which fruit is better is not the topic.
