AAPL stock has tanked more than 260 dollars in less than 6 months. As an iPhone user who uses Android products I can see why this is happening. First I can honestly say one major problem is Apples ageing IOS design. I mean c'mon! It's been roughly 6 years and the interface hasn't changed much. It's boring and looks archaic compared to Windows 8 and Android. This is why so many people where underwhelmed when they got their iPhone 5's. Nice new phone with the same old classic interface=meh. Android Jelly Bean IMO has surpassed IOS in terms of features and eye candy. Another problem is the iPad Mini. It's a rushed product to compete with the Nexus devices. By rushed Apple repackaged 2 year old hardware from the iPad 2. A product Jobs himself said wouldn't work. I don't thik Steve would have released a mini that has lower specs than the Nexus 7, just my opinion.

Playing catch up. When Jobs was around pretty much every phone/tablet release had a new, unique feature no other device had. Now they are just playing catch up to their competitors.

They do seem to of stalled somewhat, since the passing of Teh Steve........................

I thought Teh Steve ( sorry) had left Apple with a 5?/10? year 'roadmap'..................even a 2 year one would surely of given us SOMETHING semi groundbreaking, by now......................???

As a long time Apple user.....I'm not panicking yet......but yes, getting a little worried........if I held stock ( missed opportunity 1997!!!!, thousand + pounds worth...didn't have the cojones!! duh) then I'd be a wee bit concerned...............

iOS 6 sucked, iPad mini is lack luster, 10.8 is meh (but better than 10.7). 10.8.2 was released October 4. Meaning every bug that existed since October is still here.

iPhone 5 was ok. Not spectacular, but ok.

Where is 10.8.3?

The ipad mini rocks, thin, light, the specs are kinda meh, but the dated ios is what bothers me.

QVC is beyond a rip. Last summer or thereabouts they were selling 16GB iPads, non-retina for over $700 with a crappy case and some other junk...the same 16GB WiFi only model that SRPed for $400 brand new and $350 refurbed. QVC is proof crack doesn't smoke itself and that insomnia and credit cards don't mix.
