re: Samsung Ships 5 Million Galaxy Note II Smartphones
Apple is out. Yes, it makes a lot of profit but so did RIM before the co-clowns finished with it. Cook os ill-equipped to lead Apple but it isn't his fault, he is a product of Steve Jobs and Jobs could not have done better. More likely, Jobs would have hastened the inevitable because he was a control freak.His antics driven leadership would have insured that the lawsuits Apple has against Samsung would fail.
One thing of note (no pun intended), Steve Jobs failed miserably in any attempt to prepare Apple to continue a leadership role in the tech industry.Apple appears to be flailing its arms in the wind, trying to hit anything close enough yet it can't reach past its own glass doors to reach new customers. Apple is now selling to an existing customer base and what new customer it does get have no loyalty to it. New customers switch from iPhone to Android at the mere mention of a discount.
