Lessons learned:
1. Despite good/bad sales, keep confidence, keep innovating, keep moving forward. Patent stuff that can't possibly work with current tech, then hammer the competition to keep innovation across the sectory down
2. Quality over quantity. Produce high quality software/hardware, that will earn reputation and fans. Then restrict what it can do so that when you do give your customers what they need, you can tell them it is a good thing
3. Look at the long run, not the short run. If you want to live in the market, you might want to consider making an image of yourself that everyone likes. Form a monopoly and charge exorbitant fees for allowing people to sell stuff they have written on the only channel you allow. Don't allow people to use videos/music they paid for on software other than your own. Keep techno-idiot media-types on side so they think you are the bee-knees

Item 2:

Stuff missing from Apple Product[^]
5 reasons not to upgrade to mac OS X Lion/1506[^]

Item 3:
Apples 30% cut of your earnings[^]
Apple's love for drm and consumer lock-ins[^]

These are just the tip of the Iceberg and much of it has been going on for decades. Despite all of this there are hoardes of these fanbois defending almost every action I describe above. I can only ascribe this to some form of Stockholm Syndrome[^]. Sorry, but I forgot, they look so prurrrrty.
