    Try to Google “Apple Stocks” and you will see that they just dropped more than 12% and lost more than US$60/share, and is causing some alarm for the investors.  I would think that if they are “setting new quarterly records” as reported here, their stock price should be going up.  Or are we just expecting too much from Apple?

    Apple profits can “soar” significantly even with just one iPhone, since it’s outrageously overpriced.

      then don’t buy it, ’nuff said!

      If the iPhone were any cheaper then nobody will buy it. People buy it precisely because it is expensive – the same reason people buy coffee at Starbucks at ridiculous prices.You pay for exclusivity. Otherwise, get a competitor phone so you’ll have one the same as everybody else in the room.
