So it is, it was the accelerated purchase that ends December 2014 but the $90b is by December 2015. In that case, the remaining $22b could be spread out a bit more.
To average workers, this sounds like a lot but it reminds me of the interaction between Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison talking about Apple buying NeXT for Steve to eventually become Apple's CEO:Larry: But Steve, there’s one thing I don’t understand. If we don’t buy the company, how can we make any money?Steve: Larry, this is why it’s really important that I’m your friend. You don’t need any more money.Larry: Well, I may not need the money, but why should some fund manager at...
These kind of articles really get Android fans stirred up because it was their main argument just like it has been on the PC. They see value in the specs - more RAM, more cores, more GHz, more storage for less money. They are the IT guys that have that value metric right to their core. They freely admit Apple products are easier to use and setup but they use it as a negative as though tackling something needlessly complex makes you smarter.Raw performance is the last thing...
They committed to this buyback, they said $90b before December in one of their SEC filings and they'd only done $51b so they were $39b short of the goal. They are now still $22b short so the next earnings report could very well show an even higher buyback, which needs to be executed next month. People should try to drive the stock down in order to allow Apple to buy more back with the $22b. They'll buy it back regardless but remaining shareholders will get more value if it...
Is this a 15"/17" 2011 MBP with an AMD graphics chip?
Apple wouldn't have needed a custom timing chip with 4x the bandwidth for 30Hz and 30Hz is barely usable in a computer, you can see the mouse lag. There are some theories here:http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/192305-analyzing-the-imac-5k-retina-display-how-do-you-squeeze-5k-out-of-a-last-gen-gpu"Since Tonga (AMD GPU) doesn’t support HDMI 2.0 or DP 1.3 (which does support 5K SST), DP 1.2 is the only available standard to piggy-back. If Apple had somehow redesigned the TCON...
Maybe they think there's a possibility to add a stolen card to Apple Pay (I think there's a prevention for that) or it could just be that husband and wife occasionally use the same device e.g with multiple fingerprints and the store wants to know which person used the card. With a new system, people are going to be extra cautious or maybe they're just too used to security concerns from Android users paying by...
Would the following do what you need?http://www.amazon.com/Inateck®-Bluetooth-Wireless-Compatible-Playback/dp/B00N2E3ZHGhttp://www.amazon.com/ORICO-BTA-402-Bluetooth-Adapter-Controller/dp/B00AKO7XOW
There's a threshold with component prices that determines which ones are used at which price points. DRAM prices rose last year due to the fire at the Hynix plant.http://www.computerworld.com/article/2485327/data-center/dram-prices-up-35--since-china-fab-plant-fire.htmlPC demand has also dropped a bit. Mobile technology is causing supply constraints due to the high volume - that might be why they went with LPDDR3.If you take a 30% gross margin from $500, you get $350...
We tried to estimate it in the past from Apple's average desktop prices - Apple split the numbers out a couple of years ago. It's tricky that way as you have to guess the ASP of all the other models.One of the most revealing stats was when Tim said the iMac was responsible for a 700k unit shortfall out of an expected 4.8m units:http://arstechnica.com/apple/2013/01/tim-cook-on-the-imac-cannibalization-is-a-huge-opportunity-for-us/We know from the split numbers years ago...
