They sold, what was it, 26 million iPhones, and there's gonna be a new one in two months. And everybody knows there's gonna be a new one in two months. Well, let's see. Yeah, they're gonna announce it in September. And so rumors are holding down sales. I think the problem with Apple is they've blown the doors out for so long that everybody's expectations are way up. When they have a blowout, but not up to their standards, people start getting concerned. But that's the problem. It's like the expectations of this program. That's why meeting and surpassing all audience expectations every day, that's no mean feat. When the expectations are way up there it doesn't take much below "way up there" to have people think, 'Uh-oh.'"]  The Rush Limbaugh Show 4:16 PM
