With Apple's earnings miss still fresh in investors' minds, it's more apparent than ever that the Cupertino giant is far from invincible. In today's edition, research analyst Lyons George discusses why disappointing Wall Street is the least of Apple's worries -- especially in light of the quarter Samsung just posted. After setting the record for most phones shipped by a single manufacturer during a given quarter, the South Korean company is enjoying a significant upswing in global market share. Watch as Lyons discusses why Samsung's gain is Apple's pain, and what investors should be looking out for going forward.
