Sadly, we may expect an Apple rife with internal conflict within three years....

Yes. An article entirely sourced from unnamed former employees surely makes it clear:

APPLE IS DOOMED!

Let us commence with the elaborate parsing of the inevitable chain of collapse based on speculative rumor.

You realize, don't you, that Apple's average ANNUAL revenue growth over the last five years is slightly more than 43 percent? And you're saying that by fall of 2014, Apple's revenues will not have grown at all from today?

I've never said "Apple is doomed" - that's all yours. But the Apple we'll see in three years will not be bigger than the Apple we see today.

You're right, they won't be bigger.

They'll be GINORMOUS-ER!!!

Don't feel bad, I think it sucks you didn't by the stock when you had a better opportunity, too.
