Apple "Apple just posted its hotly-anticipated Q2 2013 earnings, and the company posted a profit of $9.5b on revenues of $43.6b, compared to $11.6b in profit on $39.2b in revenue this quarter last year and $13.1b in profit on $54.5b in revenue last quarter. That's right in line with the company's guidance from last quarter. Most importantly, iPhone sales are fairly flat year-over-year. Apple sold 37.04 million in Q2 2013 versus last year's 35.1 million, a modest growth of seven percent. iPad sales for the quarter were 19.5 million, up a massive 65 percent from last year's 11.8 million, but the average selling price (ASP) dropped fairly steeply year-over-year, likely due to the introduction of the cheaper iPad mini."

That, plus it seems that Apple's... ability to "innovate" has long been flat. Now they're just sitting on their popular iBrands and using their rounded-rectangle patents to bully other companies around with the legal system instead of actually getting off their asses and thinking of something new for a change.

No doubt their weakening iReality Distortion Field has been weakening as you pointed out since The Almighty Steve croaked... his successor is just unable to sustain it. But they have really fallen from actually trying new things to just bringing out boring, new models of the same old shit.
