Good old Apple. They could sell sand to the Arabs :)

It would appear that Apple has something in the works regarding iPhones. I read it this morning and now can't find it again. But the future of iPhones is apparently going to become limited because of some new product (also by Apple) that will "crowd out" the iPhones.
Crowd out, is a good term for it. Keep those consumers busy!

Solve the new, official, first world business problem: not knowing what to spend your money on!

Was this serious or humor? I couldn't tell and was curious
It was both humour and the truth. I find it humourous that a grown woman can find so many people and things, to spend time, chatting about nonsense. I am safe writing this because she doesn't ever look at these forums.

For a phone, I was more than happy with my Samsung Galaxy S5830 (tiny phone compared to those today). In fact I cannot remember why I even got that as my Nokia 6210 was fine for calls.?
I bought a cheap Android phone (oukitel C15 pro) from Amazon for the main purpose of being my mp3 player. It also had dual sim capability, so I could have a different sim for my SSAFA volunteer work.

I could not find a large capacity mp3 player anymore that was within my price range. my Creative JB3 is the size of a portable CD player and it's capacity system wise is full despite having plenty of space on the upgraded disk I put on it.

However since getting this C15, I find myself using it more and more for other things.? I have Whatsapp on it and use that for my community work, I surf the net and keep tabs of posts here and other sites during TV commercials :) I use Excel on it for my community driving work and listen to the music whilst waiting for my passengers.

I have never ever put it in my back pocket either? :)

I found the article I had seen earlier.

The Death of the iPhone (fool.com)
Mmmmmm....A stock pumper article, I dunno
Although I admit I trust Fool a lot more than, say Bezinga and such garbage.

I looked AAPL up on Zacks, who I trust implicitly, and it's rated "Buy" (not quite Strong Buy). D for value, B for growth, D for momentum.

Kinda mediocre, but Zacks seems to think it will continue to rise to some degree hence buy....Unless your personal needs call for good value or quick price movement.

that is all based on analyst speculation richard. that is, by far, the worst kind of article to read. the 2 types of people never to trust in this world:

1) those that trade for a living
2) those from NYC

my apologies about that joke to anyone who takes offense to everything.

I bought a phone recently and its Samsung S21 Plus. Before that, I was been choosing between iphone or samsung but, based on the reviews on the internet, samsung has greater features and more affordable too.

Anything is more affordable than Apple equipment. :)
However, that is one of their selling points I believe. Perceived elevated status of owning an overpriced Apple product?

I got an LG Risio in 2017 for $25, (the otter box cost more), and it still works perfectly - hosts any app I want to install - about 50 currently.
Recently the screen protector broke so I replaced it.
Possibly within the next year, I'm thinking of spending about $50 for a new/better phone - I'd like it to have the hardware capable of using Google Pay, which is the ONE thing mine can't do that I'd like to do.
