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."

The problem is that people don´t have any patience anymore it seems.

Apple needs a breakthrough product every year, music bands need a hit every month, a sports team that loses 2 in a row needs an mayor overhaul.

It seems every day we have reports, financial ones, sales figures, etc... and they spell either doom or glory for a number of companies.

If Apple sells less iPhones than yesterday they are doomed, Steve Jobs can´t be replaced, bugdet/bigger iPhone needed, fire Tim Cook, etc... when they sell a few iPhones more the next day they are briliant, it was their plan all along, untouchable.
