And have a peak at the Samesong version of Apple's video while you're at it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aqc8NGrhnw

LOL..this is great!

I'd like to share this...with credit to you of course!

/s....for sarcasm.

AAPL didn't really miss their own "guidance" last quarter...it still got whipped.

AAPL was even transparent about margins before last quarter...it still got whipped.

AAPL outsold the S4 in less time...it apparently is the most hated handset around and S4 is the most "loved".

From what I've been reading, Samesung better keep the S4s shipping, since they're replacing a good many of them for hardware failures. An old friend of mine is on his 4th one since release day due to failures.

Samesong's copy of Apple's "Designed by Apple in California" posters says it all... (see image at web link)

This is it.
This is what matters.
An increase in market share.
How it confuses market analysts.
When we can't imagine
What customers might like,
We assemble variety,
We iterate.

How many models can we build?
Will customers buy any of them?
Will they just sit on store shelves?
If Apple is busy inventing something,
Why innovate anything?

We don't believe in invention.
Or disruption.
There are a thousand variations
Of every model.
We spend most of our time
Copying a few great products.
Until every version we ship
Fills every store shelf.

We're engineers and industrialists.
Craftsmen and copycats.
We ship the most phones.

You may seldom use them,
But as long as we ship them,
It means we're winning.

th3uglytruth, There's a big difference in sales slowing seasonally and missing your forecast.

There's no sign yet that AAPL will miss their guidance.

...slow for SameDung...must be slow for AAPL too right?

What will the analyst spin be on the results?


No need in jumping for joy until we see Apple's earnings this month. It looks like a saturated smartphone market to me and I doubt Apple will get away unscathed. Wall Street is desperately looking to knock Apple's share price down further for any reason at all. Of all the tech companies that have hit the skids, Apple has to be the scapegoat of the smartphone industry.

Personally, I don't give a damn about Samsung. I want to see Apple turn on Google and drag it down. Google stock is worth more than twice as much as Apple's and Android is the reason. Without Android, Apple would probably be sitting pretty at the top of the food chain instead of being fodder.

Is this a sign of channel stuffing of Galaxy smartphones? If so, Samsung seriously misjudged the market as you would expect at least a few quarters before it became apparent. Normally that would give them time to come out with a new product to keep the ponzu scheme going. It should be interesting to see how this plays out over the next quarter. Samsung could be in for a very bad time.

One word....KARMA haha best part "Samsung's massive profits miss appears to prove out that the old sales-volume trick without profits can only work for so long and that we've been calling it right for months – well ahead of today's news. Samsung, the plastic leader, admitted to being a fast follower lately and today we see that this notion that they're a true smartphone innovator isn't panning out as they've planned. Technology leadership is more than just sales volume and Samsung is hearing that music loud and clear from Wall Street today." Lol Samsung the plastic leader! Hahahaha good one Jack
