Apple Is Killing This Company

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analysts Joe Tenebruso and Paul Chi discuss topics across the investing world.

We hear a lot about Apple's tremendous success, but a lesser-known aspect of the amazing Apple story is the devastating impact that the tech titan is having on some of its competitors. Joe talks about one popular tech company that is being eaten alive by Apple and its rabid hunger for market share.

In addition to the technology industry, retail is another sector that is in a period of major transition. The companies left behind will bankrupt investors, while the few exceptional leaders benefiting from this change will see astounding growth in the years ahead. The Motley Fool has created a free report: "The Death of Retail," which highlights two companies hand-picked by Fool analysts that are set to dominate the future.

    They should rename themselves to Research in Slow-Motion. It's been almost 5 years since the introduction of the original iPhone and RIM is still struggling to figure something out.
