The Fall of Apple

The fall of Apple While Apple is still the most valuable company in the world, its place as a leader in innovation may be shifting. Whether the company is rudderless because it no longer has Steve Jobs or if it's a matter of other companies catching up, will 2013 see Apple's fall to Earth? Growth Slowing Down Apple still makes billions of dollars annually and has seen profits rise every year since 2003, but its rapid growth may be losing speed.

Despite fanboys' devotion to everything that comes from Cupertino (even if it's just an iPod Shuffle in a new color), the company hasn't released a device or product that represented something brand new since the 2010 release of the first iPad. You could say we're due for a blockbuster from Apple.
