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.

"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.

He can when you insist on wildly exaggerating the implications. If a racing commentator mentions a horse stumbling a fence slightly it does not imply the horse is going to lose its lead, fall at the next, tumble its jockey, break its leg and find itself looking down the barrels of a vet's shotgun within five minutes. It implies it stumbled the fence slightly, and that that may or may not effect the race.
