Same old, same old. Microsoft announces a new Windows. Pundits say it’s DOA. RIM’s US sales drop like a rock. Snicker. Adobe’s earnings plummet. Sniffle. Samsung wants to sue someone. Ho hum. Google buys patent protection. Yawn. We’ve entered the Golden Era of Techno Fatigue. Is Apple next?
Been There, Done That. Next!
The daily headlines around the world of Apple have become a steady drone of negative. Except for Apple. Many of us who watch the industry around Apple, no longer do so with baited breath. It’s fatigue. We’ve grown weary of the combative nature of technopunditry and the disproportionate way that Apple remains Teflon tech while everyone else gets coated with baked on disappointment.
Yesterday’s headlines alone were enough to callous the eyeballs. Windows 8 and Metro has a serious flaw. Windows 8 may be DOA. Apple worth over a dozen times Dell’s value. Samsung wants to ban sales of iPhone 5. Adobe’s earnings drop. RIM’s BlackBerry sales drop. Google+ opens to the public amid yawns. T-Mobile: No iPhone 5 for you! Maybe. HP axes over 500 webOS employees. Netflix pulls another stinker.
What of Apple? Any fatigue setting in?
The only glimmer of fatigue I can find is my intuition. It must be time for Apple’s sky to fall because Jim Cramer says Apple’s shares are set to fly even higher.
Apple is already well over $400 a share and based on price to earnings, that’s considered cheap. Otherwise, where’s the Apple fatigue? Every other company in the Apple sphere of influence is struggling, and Apple keeps on soaring with revenue and profits soar amid greater than expected anticipation for new products.
When and how will the inevitable fatigue set in?
