Anna that is interesting indeed. Anyway lowering the cost means do they lower the features too ? I hope not

Easier said than done. But I think they have the brains to do it. They just have to re-engage in the fear-for-my-job mindset that made Apple a juggernaut for so many years under Jobs.

I agree. I think Apple should be able to continue Job's legacy. I think we have yet to see some great products from Apple.

I wouldn't bury the hatchet just yet. Give them a chance to revive their mojo. But as it looks now, there are some major concerns for them.

Anna,

That's right.

But for that you need,Apple to step off their "High and Mighty" Pedestal and accept they got beaten at the Innovation Game by Samsung.

Only then will they be able to Innovate.

Don't see that Happening yet!

Will wait and watch the action here.

Apple as you're aware is losing ground to Samsung and other Asian smartphone rivals. Lots factors contributed to the stock crashing. Apple realised they are unable to contend with rivals, due to weaker demand for its devices; the company had to cut scale back on parts and components orders to balance inventory (according to reports). What is expected now is for Apple to strategize and innovate. If Samsung have been able to roll out multiple devices in a year, why couldn't Apple?

I think Jobs' involvement was all the hype that was necessary. There was an understood greatness quality and faith in Steve. Now, with the current regime, I think that edge might be fading.

Anna,

Its true that Steve Jobs charisma will be unable to sustain itself on Apple today but still one expects Apple to do a lot more in terms of innovative capability.

I guess that's why the Stock has crashed over 30percent since September right?

hm,

Don't worry about Apple-They have the cash on their Balance Sheet(and already have the World's best lawyers on their roster)!!!

I think Apple has more Future Scope in Medical Industry than in Auto sector(particularly given the increasing number of Ageing Citizens all across the Developed world today)..
