I was at Best Buy in Langhorne Pa. today. There was a seminar about how to use the Ipad. There were at least 40 people there, all following along with their Ipads. There was a Samsung rep there with a big display of tablets, it was completely empty. I know this is one story and one snapshot in time but the theory that the days of Apple are over a way off. I' have had my Ipad for 3 months (just added keyboard which really helps) and I can tell you it blows away the Galaxy tab I had. In all fairness my galaxy was purchased 2 years ago so i'm sure the newer generation is better. I think the very worst case for Apple is it becomes a value stock which pays a decent dividend. However, if you believe there is any possibility of innovation (there are 80k employees and probably 5k engineers? They work evryday on R&D and nothing new is going to come out. Like many others I am in the hole but the odds are way in the favor of holding here and even picking up more shares on dips.
