just amazing marketing ... I doubt market capitalization represents Apples value ... Apple does a great job marketing it's products ... One of which is it's common stock ... mighty risky investment though as the value will tank the moment an old sick man, Steve Jobs, kicks the bucket.
How long apple will go? one day it comes to end. As OEM, samsung will reach this level.
Who cares... well probably the apple fanboys! With the huge profit, maybe SJ should start something similar to the Gates Foundation. However, the only apple I like is the fruit.
with all those super droids out there people still buy iphone??? is apple brain washing them???
KK, 11 Aug 2011Sorry mate, not everyone wants an iPhone.Clearly your wrong everyone does want an iphone and thats why they are number 1. You dont get the number 1 spot if people dont want what you are selling!
Hell nd hell bcoz apple company was very slow other company mobile phone techology is so high like 3d lcd technology and support Radio flash or Camera and lots of application apple names only show off i don't understand why are apple company slow and high Rates Amount
...geez, not every story about Apple is about iPhone, people who think that clearly have issues obtaining Apple products.
Adams, 11 Aug 2011You're absolutely right bro, apple products make me bored at times. Can't transfer data via bl... moreagree. i have an iphone, having said that, im not an apple fan. Apple is to strict on what you can and cant do on your iphone. I mean you bought the damn thing, shouldn't you have the right to do what you want with it? By the way my iphone was a gift, coz if it was my decision there is no way im getting an apple product.
this happened because apple products are overpriced and the profit that the company gets from each phone they sell is twice the original price.
Ashura, 11 Aug 2011Same can be said for Apple.What sold theyr products were theyr adds nothing moreYou forgot about status symbol and popularity. What else can explain their ridicilously high profit margin? Technical prowess can only get you so far...
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2011It is just sooo funny how you Android guys all say that the only reason Apple is so successful... moreMake Samsung as the only Android smartphone provider, and Apple will stumble quick.
It's gonna be really hard to explain this in detail, and GSMArena doesn't provide the real picure with this article (which I think I've read somewhere). However, ArsTechnica did showed a much more in-depth explanation of what's really happening. They concluded that Apple had only beaten Exxon by market cap, and Apple is below even Microsoft one other factors. Exxon is way up, as do most other oil companies.
AnonD-8850, 11 Aug 2011Good to see that Americans know their tech! iPad:- No flash player, no multi-tasking, VGA Came... moreYou're absolutely right bro, apple products make me bored at times. Can't transfer data via bluetooth nor editing music on ipad. Is just unfortunate!
[deleted post]Some people love iPhone and some people want an iPhone, hence free choice.
Great job Apple, keep making these magical innovative products what we love to use!
What's next Apple? maybe reinvent television? that would be cool!
