apple fanboys fight back... basically does anyone care if apples sales or production are dropping off? its not like no one is no longer buying them .they still sell them by the bucket loads . I was stupid enough to buy a 3gs back in the day,gullible hey :)

True. But it goes to show how manipulative and manipulatable the whole system we call news is!

This isn't unique to Apple and Apple fanboyism.
Same happened and happens in all areas.
This particular rumour should have been buried right away, but for various reasons (Android fanboyism is hardly innocent here) everybody ran with it...

You may hate Apple or Corp XYZ, but this is how companies can be ruined. Jobs are lost, money gets sucked up by robber barons.
It should concern everyone, really.

apple probably should expect a decrease, windows phone,Rim and android will slowly eat away at the number of iphone users. How much is anyones guess but with innovative new ideas from rim and windows phone is what people want to see. Apple unfortunately are stuck in the past it seems and if they do decline then i believe they only have themselves to blame.Nokia did the same thing

True again.

Though personally I don't give a hoot about Apple versus Android - or anyone versus Android, really.
Android powers 1600+ devices. Let it sink in! 1600+ compared to how many iOS or WP handsets? Blackberries?

In that context, iOS app sales, accessory sales, browser stats etc etc etc are doing damn well.
Heck, only a handful of bestselling Android devices at any given time do exceptionally well.
The vast majority of Android devices is outsold by Lumias and Blackberries etc....

I'm not judging OSs here. I'm just saying ;)
People should buy what they enjoy. Sell on the disappointments. Deal with it.
Don't make it a philosophy. Or worse, a wannabe science....
