I don't appreciate your snark.I defend Apple on this forum plenty and have a right to my opinion. I didn't troll and predict a failure, I just said I wasn't particularly impressed with the pricing.
I believe this is the correct answer.It's telling that the 5S won't be available for preorder.If Apple had lowered the price by $100, EPS would have plummeted
