Always someone to poo-poo the cameras that consumers actually love and use. It's not a dumbing down. The vast majority of people can't tell the difference between a pro shot and a good pic with an iPhone 5S.   I do understand the technical debate and that's something many of us enjoy. But I always stop short of saying iTunes sucks and will never be successful because it isn't some wildly huge, complicated file type. Or, like I've heard many photographers say, digital...
To me, the new Wii U controller looks huge and plasticky. The games look pretty good from what I've seen so far. But the only reason my son plays the Wii instead of the PS3 is due to the Mario games. That seems to be Nintendo's ace in the hole. I agree that N could do pretty well to port that fat plumber over to iOS.
 I can't help but think the same. Wireless is so fast these days. And the cable and port are miniscule. ;-)
 It doesn't. It's just conversation.
I agree with above. SJ would never take on debt. But it's smart, financially. It pleases wall street to see Apple make financially astute maneuvers.   I don't understand the demand for the bonds. Interest rates are not going down (bond prices are inversely related to interest rates; rates go up, bond prices fall. Longer bonds fall harder).   We may hang with low rates for a while longer but rates are undoubtedly going up. Holders of 30 year bonds are going to be...
It's even more impressive using inflation-adjusted numbers. It's mind-blowing when you factor in the much better technology at that adjusted price.
In theory, stock splits eventually settle and unless there are new growth prospects, the stock can languish at 1/7th the price before the split.   However, there is psychology at work here. It's why penny stocks attract so many people. They figure, stocks go up $s every day, imagine buying a stock for pennies! People who loosely follow Apple will think that $75/share is a bargain. They've seen $700 before and are probably thinking they will make 10X their money soon,...
App Store.....yes. I could watch the .99 cent movie of the week, Don Jon, and play Words With Friends simultaneously.
Ok, that ad was so good that Jobs' toes must have curled. Cool apps being used to create music and launch rockets....good grief. If I didn't have an iPhone and iPad already, I would have been on Apple.com before the commercial was through.   My son uses his iPad with music as well. He has his iPad propped up playing Jazz while he plays along on our Yamaha Clavinova (which is an impressive computer in its own right). Or he'll have a Youtube video showing a tune and he'll...
That's impressive, capsicum. Mind-blowing amount of data flowing through one or two cables. I was just thinking about this as I was helping my sister move. Comcast, DVD player, flat screen tv. Two HDMI cables. I can remember not long ago the component cable nightmare.   This thunderbolt stuff will come down in price. The cable pricing doesn't seem excessive to me, even now. Hell, I'm tickled every time I copy something to my 2 TB external drive which uses USB 3.   It...
