I can't wait. This will be great for work. I deal with a lot of scientific imaging which benefits from having more real estate. I suspect that in addition to a larger screen and better digitizer this will come with the A9X which is supposed to be much faster and may even have 2GB of memory.   I addition, a larger screen makes it easier to VPN back to the home Mac.
Apple's stock price has always been an anomaly. High volume investors seem to have an aversion to a risky story. Google, Amazon, Netflix and others have great "stories". This means they have a compelling argument for why they have, or will have, a quasi-monopoly that keeps people coming back. Apple has a story but doesn't promote itself that way. Instead the Street's perception is that Apple is a one hit wonder. Yes, they did well this quarter but next quarter people will...
I too got an Apple Watch for Fathers Day, seems to be a trend. (Of course, I paid for it.)    I haven't seen one in the wild, but I haven't looked carefully. I used it to pay for coffee at Peet's and the clerk there didn't bat an eye, as if this was a normal event, so I wasn't the first to do so.   I don't think AAPL price goes up much in anticipation of products, it is more that it goes up gradually in response to revenue and profit reports. Horace pointed out that...
What do they mean by engage? Do you have to visit the app that sent the notification?    I rarely get notifications. If I'm traveling I have it set so that I receive notifications from United about gate changes or flight delays. I read these on the lock screen then ignore them. The same goes for most other notifications I get. I rarely swipe to visit the app that sent them. How would they measure that as engagement?
I've asked this question many times of business people but never got a clear answer. To my way of thinking a corporation is a contractual agreement. It has a board and it has shareholders. If it gets down to the point that there is only one shareholder then it has gone private.   So if Apple keeps buying back shares and I am the only one who doesn't sell then eventually I would own Apple. It would disappear from the markets as there would be no shares...
I'll echo what the others are saying. These numbers are very odd. It's not that I've seen only a few, I haven't seen even one. Where are they? Maybe Google has tens of thousands of them running as bots in a large building in Silicon Valley.
This is probably a useful study for somebody in the business, but it is only a partial look at the market. It doesn't include net usage by apps which is growing quite a bit.
This material is so different from other engineering materials that it is difficult to predict with precision what Apple will do. The whole field of material science is huge. For demanding applications you need to consider many factors when using a material. Think of the aluminum can. To make that the right alloy is chosen, the material is thinned and even the crystal structure is altered. Too many parallel grains and the metal will crack when stretched into the shape of a...
We'll find out in a few months, but I agree with your argument. Apple had a free ride with the iPhone for well over a year. It looks like the iPad will face a faster response. In this short time competitors won't be able to come up with a sophisticated operating system or interesting applications. However, they can add a USB port, front and rear camera, more memory, higher resolution screen, etc. It's possible that Apple may feel the need to preemptively respond to these...
You say this like it is a bad thing. This looks like a mind map. These look a little chaotic but they are an interesting way to capture complex ideas. Instead of a linear outline stretching out over many pages you have one diagram that captures the relationships among different aspects of a topic.
