Just a thought, anyone consider shorting?

Everyone can't stay on the top forever....eventually it will go on a decline. I think that's how the tech world works, eventually something better, smaller, faster, etc, etc comes out and it will knock you out of the competition until you make something that can compete with that and so on and so on, it's a never ending pattern, but I do believe that they will see a decline eventually, maybe not in the next couple of years, but eventually.
[And since we're on the topic I just found this on StumbleUpon - I think you guys might like to take a look at it it brings up some very good valid points.
I have to agree though that for a long term outlook Apple is not on a good path. They are no longer truly innovating for the consumer. They are merely revising existing concepts. The $1000 price targets are I don't believe any realistic goals anymore. Can we expect a short term burst up to 700 possibly 800? Possible. Are we going to see $1000 unless Apple brings out something market changing? Highly unlikely.
Thank you for telling me about P/E, but I am quite aware of P/E, EPS, P/B, BV ratio's. I am not saying Apple is not a strong company, just the decisions/directions/products that Apple has played out recently are starting to have impact on the success of Apple. I would even go as far to say that its starting to decline and will be seen over the next few quarters.

* I say lackluster because it missed WS estimates. The sales number was actually impressive considering the macro environment, competition, and obviously the upcoming iPhone 5.

I overpaid somewhere between 300-400 for that worthless POS ipod, lightly used it, never removed it from a case or dropped it, etc. Due to the fact that I didn't race over to apple the minute it broke, it became a paperweight. In fact.. I had strange issues with it from day one, but because I'm not a confrontational guy, I let it go and just "dealt with it". Last time I ever do that..
Besides that though, for the amount that one overpays for apple products, they should give you that warranty with the product..

The I5 is apparently hitting in September. iPhone 5 Rumors Continue: New Photos, September Release - ABC News
Regardless of the company's position, this obviously is going to be a big boon for their coffers.

On topic though, I am hoping there is some "secret" to be revealed, because nothing that has been leaked online makes the phone "pop". Apple making their own maps? thats cool... I guess.. Google worked just fine for me though lol

Also, I still have an iPod from 2003 or 2004 that works perfectly. I can send it your way since it doesn't really get used anymore.

I appreciate your generous offer, but I would feel guilty since I don't "need" a replacement. If you're going to give it away, I'd rather see it go to someone who can appreciate it more than I can. I (begrudgingly) have an iphone and a basic little usb mp3 for the gym abuse. Again, thank you for your generosity though
