They showed 20% EPS growth, their profit growth was $7.7b vs $6.9b = 11.6%. The EPS growth is higher because they were buying back shares.They have made a commitment of a $90b buyback before December this year of which $51b has been made so that will indeed help drive the share price up around 8%, though likely not immediately. To reach $125, they'd need to show income growth on top of that of about 20%. In other words, just over 60m iPhones at the same margins, which is...
Never again anyway:http://www.engadget.com/2005/09/07/the-motorola-rokr-e1-apple-itunes-phone/They just need to work through every manufacturer and have them all deny it. Any that doesn't is suspect.Personally, I think they're working with Tesla on their watch.
How do you plan to meet these targets - late nights, early mornings, skipping lunch, lots of meetings? The problem with setting targets for other people is you have no control over anything relating to them meeting those expectations.Apple's been helping drive the stock price up and there's more of that activity to come:http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/07/21/how-much-stock-did-apple-inc-repurchase-last-quart.aspx$125 by Feb 2015 would need them to buyback...
What I'd really like to see happen is for Apple to embrace the open source side with Swift. Microsoft doesn't like the open source community much at all and there's some uncertainty over C#:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_Sharp_(programming_language)http://www.fsf.org/news/dont-depend-on-monoIf Swift became the main language for iOS and Android, they could drive C# and maybe even Java out. It would also allow apps like Unity and maybe other SDKs to use the language...
I don't think home entertainment and headless setups would be the biggest uses. Most average buyers would have no idea how to setup a Mini for that and using a computer UI on a TV screen is not comfortable. The iMac takes up the majority of Apple's desktop sales. In late January 2013, Tim said iMacs were down 700,000 units after being delayed until late December. For that quarter, they had no iMac sales for 2 out of 3 months. So assuming that 700,000 makes up 2/3rds, they...
What in that description has anything to do with the thread topic about Jay Carney working at Apple? These articles always seem to end up getting diverted into general politics but some people do it worse than others. Your posts are the furthest off-topic.There's really very little need to mention the US president and what each government party is doing, especially outside of an involvement of Jay Carney or Apple.If there's nothing more to say about Jay Carney or Apple,...
I think the design works pretty well as it is but it generates a fair bit of noise when the fan is going. Maybe a Mac Pro-like cylinder would work out ok. It wouldn't need a triangular heatsink but they could have the PSU at the base, a single 2.5" HDD in the middle so the cylinder diameter would be just larger than the width of a 2.5" HDD - just under 3" and the height would be just larger than the length - around 4". I'm not sure if the 3" fan would be as quiet as the...
Tim answered a question from one of the audience members who said that their surveys in the US continued to suggest the 5C wasn't selling as well as some expected, relatively. It's still an iPhone so it's still a compelling purchase over competing phones. Click listen to the audio webcast and skip to 42:00: http://investor.apple.com Tim's answer was comparing relative sales of the 5S to 5 and 5C to 4S. We don't know what the 4S sales were last year at this time, the 5...
I think it will produce better results overall too. The Unreal or Unity IDEs don't make people produce bad games because they are easier to use than developing your own game engine.Python, Ruby, PHP, Javascript are easier languages to use and learn than C. You don't have to think about memory allocations at all, they let you focus on the problem you want to solve. Speed optimization should be done by the compiler, programmers shouldn't have to constantly reinvent the...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5qalNX5G94#t=27I don't like the color choices as you've said. The white one is ok but the plastic still doesn't feel good. If they switched the MBP to plastic, it would be such a huge step back. Remember when they switched the white MB to the unibody metal, it was such a great move; it was like when poor people get randomly upgraded to first class tickets.Some reports said that the 5c felt like ceramic, it so doesn't. When you tap ceramic,...
