    • But, doc, I heard Apple was done, over, washed up. How can there be good news about Apples' sales out of Japan earlier this week and now China. I am soooo confused! :)

      • Right, I read Apple is now the #1 Smarthphone seller in JAPAN, of all freaking places. JAPAN where people have high IQs and is home-country of SONY, Fujitsu, Sharp, all which make Smartphones. APPLE became #1, and its distributor SOFTBANK's profit is up 100% year-over-year. Plus even in Samdung country (poor India), where Apple didn't prior try and sell much, its sales were up 400% year-over-year the news has now reported last week (from only 1 to 4% of market, but 400% growth is still something... and its mainly IPHONE5 at $850 a piece selling in India). So if APPLE ever offered India a moderately priced phone, heck at the $199 most Americans put down to buy an IPHONE, obviously Apple's going to get 15 or 20% of India's Smartphone market... which will be HUGE since India has 1.3 billion people now (all bathing at once in the Holy Ganges River!)

      • I know what you mean,Todd. Don't these far easterners know that Apple isn't cool anymore?
