Who cares if the iPad is dead? There's no such thing as an iPad. It's all the same product. iPod touch, iPhone, iPad. There are only small variations in size and capabilities. But really it's just iOS gizmos.   The "street" should look at the overall growth in iGizmo sales. Who cares if Apple sells fewer of the jumbo sized ones if the phablet-sized ones are selling like crazy?   It would be like investors downgrading Toyota stock because the Camry is selling less than...
New MBA. Love it! Except my older MBP had 1 TB of 7200 rpm internal storage. Missing that a LOT.
Maybe I am misunderstanding this, but from what I'm seeing, this is not okay.   Apple followed the law. If you want to change the tax laws going forward, great. Do whatever you want, government, and Apple will follow the new laws.   But you can't punish Apple when for years it's been doing something that is legal by US, Irish and U.K. law.   Same deal goes for middle class 529 savings accounts. People have set them up because the law says the earnings are tax exempt....
The happy news for Samsung is that they still have a great business working for Apple making chips and other components.
"The market is entering a phase of maturity" Unless you're APPLE
China helped importantly but was not solely responsible for massive Apple revenue growth.   Analysts' estimates were too low because of China, however. Analysts have a bias. 1) They think China is "too poor" when in reality China is replacing the U.S. as the leading world economy. And 2) They think Chinese people want to buy Xiaomi, when of course Chinese consumers want to buy the exact same thing as consumers everywhere, iPhones.   In my opinion!
Samsung is the best at making these advanced chips reliably. Apple needs Samsung. And since Samsung's mobile business is crashing, Sammy really needs Apple.
People didn't have mobile phones not THAT long ago. The pace of techno change makes the sector lucrative but hazardous for companies. Last year's dominant brands can become mostly irrelevant. AOL you've got mail! Blackberry! Nokia! Sony Walkman! Napster! MySpace! Friendster! The truly amazing thing about Apple is the company's ability to stay relevant and meaningful and exciting over time. They've proven again and again they've got superior creativity, design,...
Samsung struck gold by copying Apple and selling the one size (the phablet) that Apple decided not to offer.  Apple pioneered the Newton, the iPod Touch, the iPad, the iPhone (multiple sizes on the last two). The one hole in the lineup in terms of size was the phablet.   Quote: "If you thought the iPhone inspired the iPad you would be wrong!  Apple’s Steve Jobs was interviewed tonight at The Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital conference and was asked by Walt...
I personally tend to side with the analysts who are forecasting AAPL's rise over the next few months.   One reason is that with the iPhone 6 Apple did not simply upgrade its phone. Rather, Apple entered a whole new product category, the phablet. True, Apple chose not to call the iPhone 6 Plus the iPhablet, but they could have. This is a previously untapped revenue stream for the company.   Other potential catalysts driving AAPL higher include the App Store (the sales...
