    Stocks go up and down and I was by no means saying that Cook was responsible for apple's stock price fate. The low price is really just a blessing in disguise for Apple to repurchase shares.

    I suppose you're correct there hasn't been other extraordinary innovation from other companies. However, there has been extraordinary copycat products that closes in on Apple's competitive edge.

    Change isn't always bad, and it's not that Cook doesn't have vision, but his is just different from Jobs'.

    Credit goes where it's due, and that's why Apple bears are unwarranted. Cook has done a stellar job managing the company, but just using a different approach.

    Agreed - with $10 B allocated to the share repurchase program it still leaves plenty left for other purposes.

    I agree that Apple is in good hands with Tim Cook and the board, and all the talent. He's managing the company well, and I'm excited for the new products they are developing! While they are on their own schedule and the quality products take a lot of time before coming to market, Apple just needs to be wary not to lose their momentum. Technology trends can be fickle based on whatever the next coolest thing is.

    Great points. I agree that capital outlay is the largest deterrent in adopting the Mac environment. Corporations are finally realizing the life cycle cost of much lower, given lower IT costs. Another issue was previously the availability of software restricted to Windows, but almost all software is now available on both windows and Mac, and this is no longer a problem.

    I definitely agree that the iPad will be the driver behind enterprise growth. But the syncing, convenience, and productivity improvements of pairing both iPhone and iPad together just mean that the trend of adopting iOS will improve sales of both devices.

    Yes there has been a lot of hype about Windows 8 pads, but from a usability point of view in my experience, Apple is superior in both the OS and the device.

    Great point. There are many examples that prove Apple is successfully being integrated by companies large and small. Or course there won't be negative pages, but these testamonials just goes to show that Apple a clear choice in enterprise, and there is plenty of room to grow.

    Thanks for your comments!
    I agree that the enterprise market is smaller, but growth in developing markets such as India and China will also reduce profit margins. Hopefully growth in the enterprise market will help to offset these concerns and keep profit margins high, and continue the forecasted growth.

    The difference between Apple and BlackBerry in this scenario is that BlackBerry's core business, and strength was originally in the enterprise market. As they began focusing on personal use, and providing lower cost phones to increase market share, they slowly started to slip on providing the best enterprise solution.

    Apple is beginning to step into this role, and is strong in its other segments - including iTunes & app revenue, and also personal use sales for Macs, iPads, and iPhones. The difference is that the enterprise market is not Apple's lifeline, but a new growth opportunity, that will provide more stability.
