    I was at IBM's self-effacing announcement that it was acquiring Lotus in 1995, think it was at the Park Hyatt at Union Sq.

    Gerstner's restructuring the elephant around. And still going strong!

    Who will turn around Microsoft?

    Some columnist in 1996 wrote that Steve Jobs return to Apple would help, who would have known he would utterly repave that corporation to the media's applause.

    Will Cook survive?

    Then there is needed successful diversification of Google, Yahoo, Facebook, HP ...

    Dear Michael:

    This discussion reminds me of Intel's 1997 annual meeting. Of which the executives presented they were going to make cheaper CPUs. Then not owning INTC, I was outraged because I felt INTC was a premium, exclusive chip maker (I had done a term paper on them).

    Apple needs to maintain its affordable premium status, without insulting its [prospective] users.

    For the utility and the value I get from my Mac and ITouches, I am gladly buying a Time Capsule in a few weeks, a mini IPad in the next year and a replacement notebook, Macbook within the next 2 years.

    But no, I don't expect to buy an over $400 IPhone. Applecare is gold!!

    Sorry for not making myself clear.

    There are 100s of millions in the consumer class that would saving up for the latest IPhone, or lower working classes that would buy up an older IPhone at 4k RMB.

    More practically there are a plethora of 1k-2k RMB smartphones which globally-recognized brand Samsung sells at such price points, also local leaders Lenovo (global PC brand, not smartphones), Xiaomi, Coolpad, etc. ...

    HKD5588 for IPhone 5s, Hong Kong has one of the cheapest and quickest telecom lines. or 5288 RMB for IPhone 5s in Cn-- both are online or in Apple Stores.

    I will be buying a 2gb time machine at the Apple Store in HK in 2 weeks.

    your sister should have bought a fix it or replace it warrantee, I do.

    That's how BBY keeps me in its system as the warrantees though the Geeks are fairly incompetent, but I will be moving out to an Apple next.

    The Geniuses have treated me extraordinarily well!

    It's ordinary for people in emerging markets earning 3k RMB/month to buy a 5.3k RMB phone.

    That is why Samsung is #1, because that brand offers smartphones that also go for under 1k RMB.
