Apple..A World leader in technology….A innovative company…..A Tech Icon..But is it beginning to lose its sheen?Is a maggot growing in the apple?Yes Dear reader..Apple may be on downslide after Steve Jobs Death.Read On….

There was a time when phones were nothing more than calling devices and the iphone didnt even exist.Yes,Take it from me,There was such a time.But Then came Apple..and revolutionised a industry with the iphone in 2007..Not willing to rest on its laurels,Apple continued to innovate and gave the world iis iPad in 2010.Apple continued to go from strength to strength,and it seemed that apple could do no wrong.

But..The came the day October 5,2011,The Day Which rocked Apple to its core.It was the day the legendary Steve Jobs Died..After losing The duo popularly referred to as ‘The Two Pillars of Apple Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak,Apple seemed be be unable to innovate.Every new apple product is thinner and perhaps lighter,and people have stopped being impressed with that anymore.The Ipad mini is just a Ipad 2 with a smaller screen.There’s no real innovation anymore!Apple maps was a debacle,and it seems that apple has finally learnt the meaning of the word ‘Failiure’.The Iphone 5 stinks of low innovation.The sense of Euphoria people normally relate to Apple products is Evaporating.

The Competition is another factor,Apple launched the Ipad and Iphone at a time when there was little or no competition and after it launched the Iproducts,The Competition was left playing catch up.But a year or two after the iphone,The competition woke up.Samsung has now finally beaten the iphone with its S3 and Android ICS is beating ios in the os space.

Tim Cook and His team seem to be just monetizing a fan base created by Steve Jobs and Wozniak.Nothing lasts forever except change and Apple had better innovate if it wants to last….
