    They should definitely be concerned with losing that ice cream sandwich market. I look for Apple ice cream sandwiches every time I go to the grocery store. Alas, I can't find them anymore. I even asked the store manager and he just said that Apple didn't have enough of the ice cream sandwich market for it to be worthwhile for him to stock them.
    Other markets that Ape should be very concerned with:
    Frozen lasagna
    Stale movie theater popcorn
    Vinyl records
    Chocolate
    Red wine
    Bourbon
    Clowns
    Artificial snow makers
    Snow globes

    No, what I need is for Apple to improve their market share in the Scotch market.

    That is a fact!! There are so many markets in which they could infiltrate with a cheap watered down scotch. But darn it, they only produce a premium scotch and it is murdering their statistics. I am equally concerned to learn earlier today that they are now losing market share in
    spackle
    corn dogs
    string cheese
    spanx
    cat litter
    jewelry candles
    grass seed
    dice

    Is that grass seed or "grass" seed? Their market share could be so much higher if all the states were like Colorado and Washington.

    I'll take credit. I started it and PM'd Sean and Finn to take part. Feel free to contribute. I'm sure we are missing lots of markets that Ape is losing market share in

    You know what. They should make Apple apples.

    And I bet they would be perfect and bruise-free and juicy. Apple's lack of foresight in entering this market should concern investors. I wonder if we can get it up for a vote at the next shareholder meeting?

    I have explained it...numerous times, and in the same way each and every time...you can find it disrespectful all you want, but I'm simply calling a spade a spade.
    Ah that might be the problem! Explaining something the same way multiple times to someone who doesn't understand is not likely to help. You need to explain it in a different way.

    I never said the word "anything", I said it wasn't relevant when trying to judge the condition of a company on the market like Apple vs. the numerous devices on the low end that it doesn't even compete with.

    You ALMOST got it there, except you worded it in a way so that you intentionally didn't...clever, but a bit obvious.
    Which point didn't I get? I can't be as clever as you seem to think! As far as I can see, we agree that overall unit market share is not a good measure of Apple's position in the market (not sure exactly what you mean by 'status' - financial? strategic?). We disagree only on one point. You think the overall unit market share is not relevant at all to Apple. I think it is relevant to some degree. It is a possible indicator to Apple's prospects for growth relative to the rest of the market, and to the threats that Apple may face in the coming years - e.g. pressure for price reductions, less attractive ecosystem relative to faster growing Androidn, etc. This is NOT an anti-Apple point - all companies face threats. The question is whether they happen, and how a company mitigates and deals with them. I'd be interested to hear your views on that.

    Your bleeding heart tone of your comments is what I was referencing in terms of Jeremy Clarkson...assumptive, yes, but it follows in line with the kind of arguments presented by those who oppose him...the kind where major pieces of presented information are omitted to further an argument or agenda. Take that for what it's worth.
    Which comments on mine had a "bleeding heart tone"? Opposing Jeremy Clarkson would be like opposing Basil Fawlty or David Brent. He's one of the great satirical creations of our time.

    Sounds like your problem. Not mine.

    My views on what? What I've been talking about this ENTIRE thread? lol! You like to word things in a way that make certain things sound slightly different than what I've said, and I won't take that bait...you have my explanation over and over again in this thread so far, you can reference any number of them for my view and my take, no reason for me to continue the redundant echo. The overall marketshare from Android devices (including the bottom tier phones) is irrelevant to qualifying Apple's standing in the market.

    Which comments on mine had a "bleeding heart tone"? Opposing Jeremy Clarkson would be like opposing Basil Fawlty or David Brent. He's one of the great satirical creations of our time.
    The simple fact you made a point to mention my signature in a negative tone speaks to this.

    You're dancing around like a salsa dancer now.
