Sounds like the advice was good, just a little pricey."After an exhaustive, $3.5 billion survey of existing consumer tech, it is clear that Apple is the company to copy..."
When someone who doesn't have an iPhone sees mine, the first thing they want to do is try Siri. I think Apple sees Siri as a major differentiator in the smartphone arena and these adds play that up. I think they will sell scads of them with these adds, even if it is silly...Also, it is new and unique--most people already know about the games and the screen and the camera and such. Most people think other phones have those things too.Finally, Apple is claiming Siri as...
The point is that some folk hang around this site full of Apple fans just trying to start arguments. Going to AppleInsider and saying that IOS is a crappy piece if doodoo is not analogous to going to an Apple site and saying Android is poop.Honestly, neither does much for the "discussion" but only one of those is trolling here. Of course, the opposite would be true on an Android site.This being said, the title of troll should be applied to people who are just trying to...
All this fuss is rather comical. You will save yourselves a great deal of angst if you realize one thing: Sorkin is not signing on to do a doccumentary. Yes, he will start with the "official biography" of Jobs. Yes, he is likely to do more independent research as well. Then he will pick out and massage the story lines that make make the most interesting story he can. If his goal was to present the facts and nothing more, he wouldn't be hired. I am reminded of one of...
Is there any evidence that the type of cover used causes significant additional heat retention? I am about to get my first iPad and I was planning to pick my cover on the basis of ergonomics, protection and looks (in that order). Do I need to add heat retention to that mix?
Does this mean they will not be for sale at AT&T or Verizon stores? Is this a change from The previous release?
The three wise men! Of course, you are all right. Problem is, this started as "play around money" and AAPL annoyingly made it real money. I have house projects coming on line and expect to need this money this summer. Although I am still long on Apple (in theory now), no one knows what it will do day-to-day or even month-to-month. (Remember the annoying drop at the end of 2008 despite fantastic fundamentals?) I decided to lock in money that I was beginning to count on...
I hate to admit it, but I sold at $542 before the announcement. I didn't have a fortune in but i was long for 4 years and figured I should lock in some nice gain and wait for the illogical correction that always seems to happen when things are going well. I felt like a genius for about 26 hours! Now I'm like the kid at the playground sitting by himself watching all the other kids play a game...
I feel like I have to go on record and say that I believe Apple will release a smaller tablet within a year's time. I don't credit DigiTimes, I just believe it will happen and I believe it will sell...I agree they won't do it to "be like the Fire" they will do it because they think they can sell it. Certainly, they are not always the first. They made the MP3 market great, but they wern't first there. I remember that the rumors of a flash memory iPod were scorned by...
Absolutely not. However, there was some scornful FUD that went well beyond "it doesn't look right for me" and was tending toward the hysterical. Curiously enough, much of it came from the same people who derided the iPhone as a flash-in-the-pan, arrogant mistake when it came out...
