    Fact every household will have at least 2 Apple devices by 2015 thus achieving Apple's goal to rule the world via Orwellian style!!!

    Just kidding OR AM I :p

    Well, it's almost 2013 and Apple is still going strong. I plan on taking the full Mac plunge and get an iMac when the new version is released. I don't need I laptop as I am always on the iPad.

    Dont apple have like btw 500k to 1 million between All three markets: Mac, pad, and phone? How else do you hit 25 billion plus in 5 years. To my knowledge ppl Dload more than fb, twitter, apple store, ipf, and Netflix. Lol.

    Google play is definitely a positive push for android market, but they can't move things fast enough.

    Cough cough. Google is "non-partisan" money is money. Btw: GOOGLE DRIVE anyone?

    Android is winning in market share but iOS is more profitable and that's the metric that matters.

    It'definite to make the most money, but there's room for many companies in the marketplace. Being No. 2 or 3 is nothing to sneeze at.

    I'm glad for competition and don't feel invested in any brand being No. 1 or such. If someone makes something I find useful, it doesn't matter to me whether they make the most money in their field.

    For what it's worth. Purported video of assembled iPhone 5, recorded at IFA 2012 in Berlin.

    The reminder that I set last year popped up a few minutes ago. It seems to me that Apple is still a leader and going strong. It would be interesting to see if the author of the initial article still feels the same.



    Yes, Android is winning the market. Apple has remained with just one product while Google has opened their OS to a number of different vendors.



    I've have phones with iOS and Android. Both have advantages but I prefer iOS.

    He's probably analyzing employment opportunities as we speak.

    Seriously though, he's right. Apple is no longer "cool". It's a very profitable business selling high quality products, but its become mainstream. You don't have to be a geek to want their products now, and their computers are serious contenders as everyone's main computer now.

    Apples competitors are far, far behind in terms of profit. It is important that companies earn a decent profit else they might not be around to support their products.
