Two soldiers can serve the same tour of duty, in the same unit, walk into the same firefights side by side, suffer the same wounds, and one could come off tour mentally and emotionally unscathed while the other suffers full blown PTSD. There is no hard and fast rule as to who gets PTSD and who doesn't. Just as there is no hard and fast rule as to who can cope with depression just enough to fend of suicidal urges and who can't. People who think Robin Williams was...
 Sooooo, if you were running Apple, you would tell the developers to upgrade their apps to 64 bit first and only when they're done would you release a 64 bit iPhone?
I have never ever heard anyone say or write "I really prefer Android but the only smartphone I am able to, or am allowed to purchase, and this is completely against my will, is an iPhone".   That is what an iPhone 'captive market' would be.

There are already laws against companies misleading investors both by hiding material information or disseminating false information.  99% of the time though, ridiculously high stock prices is the investors' fault not the company's.

Or ask Walmart from their experience a few years back when they tried to move their clothing lines a notch up.  Just a notch, to Target levels, mind you. It is very, very, very hard to move your brand upmarket.  You basically have to wait until the generation that knows you as a discount brand starts to die off and the generation that knows you only as a prestige brand to enter their prime earning years.  In short you have to wait for the market to forget you before you...
