Wow indeed! Samsung's swift decent is both breathtaking and gratifying to all who saw them for what they were--unscrupulous knock-off artists.However, next time you* want to complain about how analysts and the market undervalue AAPL, you have to remember this.Other than Apple, how have the last 5 Titans of the phone industry fare over the long haul? Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, Blackberry(RIM) and now Samsung? They all had stunningly swift declines. Something about the...
I disagree. The data shows that Joe and Jane are seeing a reason to buy. Half to almost 3/4 of iPad purchasers are new to iPads in Apple's most important markets. This is clearly stated in the article and it is not insignificant.I think the real issue (as others have said) is that old iPads work well. While Joe and Janr are buying new iPads, Jack and Jill consumer are happily using their three year old iPads and aren't in a rush to upgrade.Significantly, also stated is the...
Why is it that so many people don't get that today's market change happened BEFORE the quarterly results were announced and before the conference call started?It's not like concubi is new to this...
So you are saying that an investment bank with scads of highly paid specialists do serious research into a company and offer their professional opinion that "the stock will either go way up, stay about the same, or go way down" (to paraphrase) and you defend their analysis by saying "well, their stock has gone up and down in the past" (to paraphrase again).They are not really "forecasting" if they just point to the last 4 years...
That graph actually understates AAPL's advantage with the buy periodically and hold method. Since MSFT peaked much earlier anything an investor bought less than 15 years ago will show only modest gains to present.OTOH, when an investor purchased and held AAPL stock 25, 20, 15, 10, 5 or even 2 years ago, it has ALL skyrocketed.
It looks like they took a pre-iPad klunky PC tablet and shrunk it down for the wrist. I wonder if it still has a tiny little CD/DVD slot on the side...
I would love to use my iPhone for all my in store transactions. Unfortunately, I just don't shop at many places where it is accepted. When I am in RiteAid or Best Buy, I make a point to initiate an ApplePay transaction. They are always denied, but I imagine if there are enough, they might notice. I also make it a point to educate the sales person if it isn't busy. They often say something like "yeah, iPhones don't work here." I make sure to let them know it is their...
Don't blame the protesters for the article's lose translation. Sí, se puede would be more literally translated as "Yes, one can" or possibly "It can be done." The impersonal "se" is not always easy to translate to English...[
They don't need to offer prizes to get me to use Apple Pay--just get it everywhere. A outside a rejected attempt at Rite Aid (the day they shut it down) my only phone purchase has been a soda from a Coke machine--just to prove that I could. I guess I don't shop at the right places...
Yeah. My 4 and 4s both got micro scratches within the first month or two. Noticeably near the top where it would rub my glasses when I held it to my ear in phone mode. I had just been marveling at how pristine the 6 screen still is.This report makes no sense to me unless there were different materials or processes used...
