Hey! The new cover for my preorder of the iPad Air 2 just came in. Looks a lot like the one for my iPad Air. I just tried it on the Air. It fits exactly as before, except there must be a slight difference, which I haven't measured yet, as it just came, because the center doesn't sit completely flat without me using a finger to gently push it down. Then it moves up again. The old cover was about 0.625" high at that spot (the first bend point nearest the hinge, but the new...
These guys are very conservative. They are more in the business of not having you lose money, than making it.I've a friend who asked me several years ago if I had a recommendation, as he had almost $100,000 in cash that was unexpected. I told him to buy Apple. His advisor (he has a managed account, something that I would never do) said that it was a great idea, as soon as Apple pulled back a bit. It was $220 at the time, and never pulled back. He never did buy it.
While I'm eager for Apple Pay, I don't see it as having much to do with Apple's stock price as yet. Why? Because there aren't enough phones out there, and not enough terminals. After a year, or so, we should see movement.
Apple predicting is a sport, not a science. I normally only worry about long term, as I'm an investor, not a trader. I used to trade a lot, but not for the past ten years, or so. But, having said that, the usual is dependent on how well Apple has done compared to the average expectations, and the highs. Then we get the "whisper" numbers. Frankly, all of this is garbage.I'm old enough to remember that as long as a company ended up somewhere within the expectations, the...
No. They count before they are delivered. It's a bit more complex than most people think. For a pickup retail sale, what you're saying is true, but not for orders. When I commit to a purchase, it's counted.
Some of those limitations have been eliminated, and the way Apple has been going, I expect more to be eliminated. It's your business as to what you choose. But I really don't exoect BB to be here in two more years, and if they are, it will be as a small player in the MDM market, and possibly with a very small percent of message app users.At some point, you'll need to figure other ways of doing things. Whether it's Apple, or something else doesn't matter.
What's being ignored is the statement that Cook made during the last presentation, as well as the slide put up during that statement, when he said that sales of the new phone was much higher than last year's introduction. He said higher, and then went and said much higher.So unless sales took a rather large, and last minute drop, we could see higher phone sales than expected. I'm expecting 38 million, or even a bit higher. 40 million could be possible, but that's a big...
I think you're just mouthing every single thing you've heard the past several weeks, and that's not analysis at all.
Apple never includes reservations, only sell through. No results from China can be expected from series 6 phone sales last quarter.
Yup! Space Grey 128GB Cellular/GPS Red cover I'll tell you, it was driving me nuts about the store opening time. Usually it's been done at night. But this time it was crazy. I do t recall being offered the Verizon sim though, so I'll have to run out and get one as soon as this comes in. Good thing they have a store just four blocks away. Unless I can use the one in my Air.
