    whatever demand is there will stay there however and if a big player goes out and isn't filling that area anymore.... someone else will, either another big companies or a number of smaller companies or a combination..

    As was said above.... someone else will simply step in.... for example if say GM went out of business tomorrow....people that would of bought a GM will simply buy a car from elsewhere, maybe ford, maybe chevvy, maybe nissan.. who knows but a car will still get sold regardless of who it was from.... people wont go without a car simply because one manufacturer went out of business...

    News this morning was talking about Apples sales were down 6% and it was from the Tablet market sales. They blame competition from Google and MS new Surface.

    The Lenovo people are laughing all the way to the bank.

    you gotta remember too that profit goes out to all the shareholders and such unless got no public offerings, which dell, IBM and such do have... that profit gets divided out to a lot of people....

    So you making 1 million profit isn't really comparable.... a lot of the minor shareholders are probably lucky to see 100 dollars of that
