What a killer article by DED.   I usually enjoy your "no holds barred" writing style, but I gotta say, this far more reserved article, which let the images and story do the talking was pretty awesome.
Google is absolutely crushing everybody in the Maps arena. Is there anyone who can even compete with them here? The amount of information and data they have is unparalleled.
Hah! I can't wait for another DED Before/After graphic. His one on Samsung phones before/after the iPhone is a classic.
Please go read the reviews of their "health" products. They are extremely poor quality, with the sensors giving results which are widely off the mark, and the apps being pieces of junk (e.g. The watch won't upload pedometer data to the smartphone's health app because it has its own app).
No one's ownership was changed. However, outside investors' influence was halved and insiders' influence was doubled. It was a very dirty move, IMO. Surprised there wasn't much of an uproar (OTOH, I am not. The people suffering the most were probably the smaller guys, since the institutional investors were probably aware of this, and most likely also ended up on the beneficiaries side).
I think 1 aspect of this split a lot of people are ignoring is that this makes the Apple stock available to the vanity "investor".   This may be someone who isn't really into investing, but is an Apple fan, and would like to "own" a piece of Apple. It's far easier to do that if you have to pay only $70 instead of $500.   Now, this may not affect AAPL's price at all, but what it does is strengthens the loyalty of the customer. Such purchases won't help Apple on the...
This move also makes Apple a shoo-in for the Dow.   The DJIA values companies based simply on share price, and Apple's high per share price meant including it in the Dow would give way too much weight to Apple.   With the lower share price, Apple will almost certainly be the next company included in the Dow, and therefore see its share price rise even further as index funds have to buy AAPL (although the share price may not change since this expectation may already...
I have been very surprised by how long it has taken Apple to release a larger iPhone. They have lost significant market share, and worse, mind share, especially abroad (most of Asia at the very least), because competitors hammered them for the small screen size. If the rumors of the iPhone 6 coming with larger screens is indeed true, there will be no reason other than cost for most consumers to buy something other than an iPhone. Will be interesting to see how things play...
the next time Samsung builds a phone they will try and innovate, and won't straight up copy.We saw this when Samsung completely changed the look and feel of the Galaxy phones (I believe with the S3) because the S2 was such a legal landmine.This helped customers too with more innovation in the market (of course, this being Samsung, no one thought the new design was better).
There may be many things that may highlight the need for an Apple TV revamp.   The FireTV is NOT one of them.
