So iPhone 4 sales have slowed (I guess except for on Verizon), Android is top dog now, and Apple's shares are down. We're kind of in the iPhone 4's twilight months and starting to gear up for the iPhone 5, while lots of other phones are coming out from other manufacturers. When you search "iPhone" or "Apple" you get lots of foreboding headlines about doom and gloom for Apple. In some ways, I'm really worried. I'm a pretty new Apple fan--a former hater. But I have bought into their eco-system. I really don't like Android very much at all, and I'm super excited about getting my iPad 2 from FedEx in a couple of weeks, but I hate all the bad press. Gives me buyer's remorse. It kind of reminds me of when everyone was saying the Xbox 360 would die because the PS3 was going to drop in price and everyone would be all over it. Logic, common sense, history, and anecdotal evidence tell me that the Apple brand is strong and the iPhone 5 is already a much hyped product. The worrier in me is afraid of a future where my only VIABLE choice is Android. Again, I have tried Android in its multiple versions and I still just don't like it. So, old Apple fans: Tell me, the new Apple fan, is this the natural ebb and flow of things? People I know who have always liked Apple tell me that this is just a common worry that you tend to get over if you are into Apple for awhile.
