        224I agree with you 100% especially when the iPhone echo system.David’s comment below does not take in consideration the fact that companies like Sony, LG, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic etc. are majorly invested and manufacturing flatscreen TVs. So why not Apple?They are much better positioned than these other guys are to deliver a product that is compelling. Just take note at what happened to the cell phone business, real deep entrenched competitors with big bucks and still they got their butts handed to them by Apple.3 d6 45
