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."

No, not really. It means certain things that made it an exciting playground of technologies is gone. The interface isn't thought of. They aren't continuing to improve using the desktop at all. Its like how people praised the Apple II back when it was released. If you tried marketing a competitor today, well you wouldn't make it far. It was, for a time, the best environment you could have. Now its not, that wasn't meant to be a put down to how it once was, just that it hasn't improved as much as linux and (gasp! ) even windows have.
