Actually, sweating. I seen other "sport related" electronic having issues with people's sweat. Only those items which are specifically design to be water resistant to something more then a meter of water hold up to athletic activities. Keep in mind Apple is saying it is a luxury item which automatically says it not for everyday abuse, but they also say it for health and activity base uses which mean people are going to sweat on it.
First the reason the Cable guy had to go digital they could not provide HD on Analog for all the channel which are HD today. Digital is the only way to have enough bandwidth to provide HD content.ALso, even the analog STB monitored what you were watching, grant it is far less data then Digital STB but they still knew what you were watch since there was what is know as out of band digital return path to the operator. Most of this was to verify that you were only watching...
Do not kid yourself, cable operator already share this data about you with Content owners. The STB today know exactly what you watch and when and report it back the cable operators. The question is do that exactly share who you are or you are one of X many people who actually watch a particular show. I doubt Apple will tell them who you are by name and all the content you watch or listen to or the apps you buy or where you happen to be with your phone or ipad when you...
First Google Fiber is not the answer, why because Google is only installing places where easy to do so. Example Google fiber is not being put in the north east where the population density is the highest. However, it requires fiber to be installed on a pole above ground and then requires yearly maintenance and weather induced failures.Next, I happen to live in an area where I have 4 choices for video ( 2 satellite, one cable, one fiber) and 3 choices for interest (one...
Here the other thing, if I am paying for broadcast network TV like CBS I better not see any commercial otherwise it better be free to watch. These Networks are doubt dipping these days, they want us to pay and then show 20 min of commercials for a hour long show.
What a great idea, Make sure they get them out of circulation, at least we know apple will dispose of them properly. They will not end up in some poor person in a 3rd world county, and making them think this is the best the world has to offer.
You know why this happen, what I read is they stayed away from the top earning stocks in those years Apple being one of them. At this point I think it is going to happen again in 2015.Over the last few year I moved most of my money out of mutual funds and into single stocks because the funds were not keeping up with the broader market. Our government put so many restricting in place the fund guys can not do anything. I'll give you a simple example, I have a 529 for my...
and none of them are really growing and Gas and oil is not a good example, everyone needs to buy gas for now that is so it low risk to be one trick pony. However, you do not need an apple product or as some would like to believe, apple is easily replaces with another tech company solution. Yeah same is true for gas and oil, they tried to make people brand loyal to gas, does not work well unless your a NASCAR fan and you buy the gas they use and will drive miles to get it....
Lets put this way, you do not get to where Steve got by being nice to everyone all the time. Also Eddy Cue I would say is in no position to make his statement for all of Steve's life. We all know what Steve did during is early days at Apple and we heard it from numerous sources. Steve obviously learned to tone it down with time and figured out new ways to motivate people without berating them. Here is my issue, we have all these people who get so offend when someone even...
I agree with you, they are suppose to hedge against down side risks. The Hedge fund guys have the same issue I have now. Way back I bought and sold apple and took the profits to put them into other things to spread the risk, then the price got too high to make buying and selling meaningful ( the spread between the lows and highs were small) Even though my other investments have done well, Apple has done far better to the point where Apple now makes up a significant portion...
