Sitting on that much cash, with as low a multiple as the stock is trading at....I wouldn't count Apple out, but I merit your sentiment in wanting to see them go down.
Of course, as I'm writing this post, I realize I am just as much a Google fanboy so I shouldn't be too harsh on the Apple fans. I...seriously....love....Google.
Bought an iPhone 5 to finally give the iPhone a try. My two year old Samsung was in many ways superior to the new iPhone 5. I will probably go back to Samsung in the next cycle, but as that's around a year away, who knows what might be on the scene by then? I do wish I had held out and gotten the next generation Samsung but I'm living with the 5. It's far from a bad phone it's just no where near the iHype.
I'm still torn on the phone side. I have an iPhone 4 that's coming up for renewal in April. Going to Android would be a no brainer....but I do love me some AirPlay since my Pioneer receiver has the capability built in and I actually have grown kind of dependent on it.
