"He gets paid"? Are you sure of that? Microsoft pays him? Google pays him?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that outside of Apple and Google, there are very few companies with such large market capitalization as well as high P/Es. It's natural that things can't be so volatile and speculative as they get so big. As for me, with a large part of my net worth in Apple, I'm happy their P/E is declining while the E is steadily increasing; it makes my investment safer even if it isn't growing. I expect their P and their E to continue to...
Also not speaking for him, sometimes less is more. Specifically, when there are a bunch of features that I don't use, whether in an OS X laptop or M$ Word or a VCR, these extra features actually detract from the user experience and from those features that I do use. Apple helps people focus by leaving things out. Just as there are plenty of people who only use 10% of M$ Word, there are plenty of people who only use %10 of a laptop's capabilities. The iPad addresses...
Yes, the iPad will cannibalize some Mac and iPod Touch Sales, but much more importantly, it will steal significant market share from M$, especially from the netbook category.
I don't know, but I think it's possible that Bill Gates is telling the truth here and he really doesn't see the value of the iPad, just like millions of others. And that's the genius of Steve Jobs. Others can't dream up this valuable stuff on their own, and they can't even recognize it when it's directly shown to them. But they'll eventually get it when people around them start using iPads and they get to spend time with one themselves. An almost magical device, the...
I agree; I think you did a good job summarizing the main implication of the article. Apple is confident and its competitors are insecure; Apple leads and they follow. Do any of you think Amazon stands a realistic chance of putting out a half-way decent, competing product? Multi-touch, multi-function, presumably some kind of general purpose OS under the hood? I for one think they're in way over their head and their copycat product will very likely never see the light of...
Well sure, you have a point. Except that I look at the situation slightly differently. I don't say that I "HAVE to buy an iPad", I say that I "GET to buy an iPad"! The damn thing looks like a lot of fun to me and reading is only of its supported activities I'm looking forward to.
Then you should stick with traditional media. Nobody's arguing with you about your right to do that, I hope. As for me, I don't mind paying the same for digital as opposed to traditional. Sure, the publisher's printing costs and what have you have disappeared with digital, but from my perspective, my storage and schlepping costs have disappeared. I live in a small home with over-flowing bookshelves, so the digital format has an extra, tangible value to me.
On the one hand, I don't like paying more than I have to for the written word, on the other hand, I very much want great publishers and newspapers to thrive. For example: I've been reading the NY Times online for free now for a few years. (I paid them their online subscription fee for the brief period where they required that.) So I very much enjoy their product, and I also very much enjoy getting it for free. But I have to be honest with myself and admit that I'm...
I'm confused. I understand that to some people, Flash and multi-tasking and the ability to load any application you want are very important features. Apple thinks they're not so important for their mobile devices, and I agree. You guys are free to disagree as vehemently as you like, but I'm confused as to why you choose to spend so much of your time on Apple sites ranting about your frustrations, sharing your hostilities. Just go out, buy and enjoy the competing...
