Well – yes, because to maintain this share price – they need some really cool new technology – or someone convince people that it’s phone is worth much more than the others out there.

I’ve seen the iPhone and the Samsung’s – and honestly; the Samsungs are smaller, with a nice screen, they don’t need proprietary connections and are more flexible over all.

While some might want the quality and/or name of Apple – the vast majority just want a new Smartphone with ‘frills’. So quality in the long term even becomes a question – since in two years, your phone will be outdated any way – well, for that specific market.

Personally; I’m glad keeping the same phone for 5 years – BUT I will never pay $30.00 for a phone charging cable… sorry Apple, but there’s really no justification for that.

Icahn does have a very large stake in a vastly over-valued company- that company is Netflix. Although it continues to surge as AAPL once did, there will come a day when it ceases and the algorithms start to push it down, big time… Lets see what happens to GOOG on Thursday after the close..
