    Within the past few days we've been reporting on lots of analysts and pundits who have been voicing their predictions for Apple's performance in 2012, and most of them have been glowing, to say the least, but Brian Deagon at Investor’s Business Daily appears to be swimming against the generally positive tide of expert opinion with his pronouncement that Apple will be seen to stumble in 2012, mainly because, he says, the Samsung Galaxy is a “cooler†phone than the iPhone, which he says is “boxy, flat and feeling stale.†Deagon goes on to say that the supremacy of Apple’s iOS platform will be threatened by the continued growth of Google’s Android OS platform in 2012. “Smartphones and tablets will become commodity items and Apple will be eaten by the collective Android gang,†he predicts. Deagon concludes his bleak prediction for Apple by saying that the TV market is the “next big hope†for Apple, but he says that success in this field will not be easy to achieve, given Samsung’s current dominance of that market.

      Yes Apple products are cool, but they are also very well made, fast and have developer support and most important have clear direction and no device confusion.

      Apples at easy to use and when I do get confused the apple store provides fantastic support. Love both my iPad2 and 4S.

      Apple is all about coolness, but their products are more main stream now, not only for the rich!

      Well it's halfway past 2012 and Apple is till cool. Guess this analyst is also all about Scientology.

      Brian Deagon has been slagging Apple since January. Back then he was citing Morgan Keegan's Travis McCourt who lowered his AAPL price target from $530 to $513. At that time AAPL was a $411 stock.

      AAPL closed at $674 tonight. Glad I've never given McCourt or Deagon any of my money.

      Seriously conflicted idiots. But it's still wrong for CNBC to malign "real" penguins. ;)
