Wow! And this coming from someone living in the center of the economic and intellectual universe, Alabama. Meanwhile, we just moved to Orange County a few months ago and have found an energetic and thriving economy with fantastic quality of life. Go figure. Didn't realize I was in a death spiral.
No surprise here. The first few years of sales have been phenomenal, and filled a huge need in the marketplace. Now the current market for potential consumers has been well filled. The big change in shipments is based on two key factors - first is the fact that the replacement/upgrade cycle is far longer than the iPhone and more in line with desktops.

"Hayek did say that the company would look to work with Windows and Android devices, seemingly ruling out compatibility with Apple's iOS. " How many ways can you say fail?

More importantly, trying to look at Apple's value from the standpoint of a single relatively inexpensive component is like valuing a luxury car by the type of oil in the engine.
WTF - moronic! Just like they let everybody use their keyboard design. What a twit.
Before you post such a ridiculous and uninformed post you should really educate yourself on the subject matter. First, most of the android phones you mention, other than Samsung, are from cheap ass Chinese manufacturers, many of whom have NOT been paying Qualcomm as they should, or when they do, they don't report all their sales. How would we know that? Qualcomm reported it in their security filings. (And the overwhelming majority of those android devices you mention,...
