Apple The Wall Street Journal: "Apple has cut its orders for components for the iPhone 5 due to weaker-than-expected demand, people familiar with the situation said Monday. Apple's orders for iPhone 5 screens for the January-March quarter, for example, have dropped to roughly half of what the company had previously planned to order, two of the people said. The Cupertino company has also cut orders for components other than screens, according to one of the people." The WSJ is usually very well informed about Apple matters (and Japanese business new Nikkei reports something similar), so it's a safe assumption that they're not making this up. What, exactly, this means, we don't know; perhaps a new model already? Seems strange they would switch to a different screen this quickly, though. Android (more specifically: Samsung) keeps on growing, so it's only inevitable that Apple would feel a sting there at some point. We'll know for sure on the 23rd, when Apple's latest quarterly results come rolling in.

RE[2]: So

Member since:

You really have an issue with the word "crisis", don't you?

Lower sales than Apple itself expected - if true - isn't a crisis, and no one here suggests that it is. You really should stop making up fake extremist claims just so you can easily refute them, it's annoying and highly disingenuous.

So, where exactly do you see this going? You can't exactly imply something then get upset when someone connects the dots for you.

You've been clearly, for a while now, suggesting Samsung's dominance over Apple. Almost every Apple article you site related to sales includes Samsung (even without evidence that Samsung is even remotely related to the situation, that's YOUR own addition and interpretation).

You think that because you don't blurt out your position, but drag it along through these vague snide remarks over the course of a few articles, that people don't notice?

Seriously, you latch onto any negative Apple news and chomp at the bit to criticize them without even the slightest amount of due diligence.

The Judge is biased towards Apple, Apple isn't licensing FRAND, Apple planted a Jury Foreman, American Justice is corrupt, anything. You will say anything and slander absolutely anyone to make Apple look the bad guy.

And then every time someone replies to you, you raise your hands and say "Oh not me, I said nothing like that" and run from your own positions.

My point (since apparently you're hard at comprehension) is that EVERYTIME one of these red meat articles is posted on OSNews, there is the same discussion. Apple is inevitably doomed, Apple needs to make different device sizes, vendor lock in, patents, blah blah blah.
