this non stop bashing by the media cant be good for sales. they keep driving home how Apple is not cool anymore and how Samsung phones are much superior. They also keep saying that all Apple products are overpriced. consumers are saying "why pay premium for inferior phone and tablet?
iPhone estimates are cut. iPad estimates are cut. Mac Pro removed from European market. Macbook Pro aren't selling. They have to push out cheaper iMac to get school interested....
Sales are hurting across the board. There is absolutely no way April earning will be good. We are going to get another $50 down day in April. Guaranteed.

I for one have 4 kids, I am so discussed with cook, I will keep my apple t.v. & my 5 ipads, but I started my 12 year old on samsung (while a apple shareholder) in middle finger fashion, I will never buy them an iphone. I had to fight the "but dad, siri is cool" they will grow up on android, and probably never leave.
If cook had been fighting but the stock went down, fine.... But as the entire board eats cake, while my shares tank. #$%$ on em, they have lost my support. (I did just put fresh $ into shares, as I think this is overdone. But I will be out when this thing gets above $525) and I am done buying apple products & will train my 4 kids elsewhere.
I agree...... The stock has become a distraction to the company and sales..... That is why Cook can't ignore the stock anymore, he can't be "patient".... He has to step up and act.... Many aapl shareholders buy aapl products..... I expect a major announcement within 2 weeks...
