New Delhi: After staying on top of its game for years in a row, is Apple Inc finally feeling the heat? 
 
Under the leadership of its quirky but brilliant Steve Jobs, the company brought out innovative products which were intuitive, packed with solid features and came with looks that clearly made them stand apart from competition.
