 Any bets the AppleTV will look and do pretty much the same in five years? A lot of people have been waiting for some things to happen with AppleTV (excluding Gene Munster here, but regular consumers). All Apple has been able to do in the years ATV came out is add a lot of buttons for channels that a lot of people don't use. ATV is just a Netflix device pretty much for most people. They need to open that puppy up and allow other channel apps that other TV devices have had...
Seems he unconsciously "borrows" heavily from others. You wonder if he is becoming too full of himself. And how much credit do you keep giving to one person? We all knew Steve J. got a lot of credit, but people knew that he had great people around him that contributed heavily. And he pushed those people to be more great than they thought they could be. Apple needs to get back to being iconoclastic. Seems they won't. They will become a caricature of themselves?  Or will...
Companies that make watches probably need two kinds of customers:   1. People who mostly just want to know what time it is (like myself, with a $25 Casio, after getting tired of pulling the phone out for 3 years) 2. Those who want something far more than that (changable faces, apps, whatever else that may be)   Maybe Apple will hit on it to make a market for people category #2 and create a market for those people who are not #1 or #2, but would become...
  I rarely use my phone as a phone. Maybe once a week to call? I could see myself with the 6+ as a tradeoff phone/iPad for reading and as a portable computer. A lot of people hardly talk on the phone anymore. As was said here before, cheaper to have a 6+ (and only deal with one device) than have an iPhone + iPad. As Android has shown, there is a market for big phones. If anything, the iPhone 6+ will cut into tablet sales. For sure. A lot of people only want one device. And...
It's a fool's game to bet on individual stocks.
Apple keeps blowing it on cloud - they've lost my confidence in them.   I pretty much use only Google's services and apps, and Amazon for additional backups.    Poor planning on Apple's part with Yosemite. Seems one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.   It's a big, big company, now, growing in many directions and tons of new hardware and software rolling out. No doubt they are increasing employee size.   Companies seem much better when they are small or...
My phone appears to drain faster. I hardly use it during the day at work and I'm at 40% when I get home.    Also new, I get getting an annoying message whenever I launch Podcasts that "Cellular Data is Turned Off for Podcasts."   No KIIDDING, Why does iOS 8 have to remind you every single time you do that? Some of us only have 1 GB of data and don't want Podcasts on cellular data. Whatever that means.    No way to stop it.    Podcasts - you'd think it couldn't get...
How were the "targeted" accounts compromised? I haven't seen a story that really goes into this.
I have a Chromebook and it is fantastic for the price. iTunes aside, which I hardly use anymore, it a fine replacement for a MacBook (considering the price, that is, at $100 after rebate...) I'm sure Apple could "afford" ship a cheap and good laptop under $500, but it would upset their product applecart, so to speak, when it comes to pricing. Apple product universe all seems to be around a product pricing tree. It's very structured. For instance, there is the iPad mini...
And Podcasts...It was bad to begin with and thought it would improve. Worse now. It's a mess and it's arbitrary about downloading podcasts.
