HEAD->DESK Why in the world does anyone think people will buy a Gamestop tablet for games, when they can get a $499 iPad which does a whole lot more, and has a much larger game library? If its Android, then why does anyone think game devs will develop for Gamestop's Android tablet as opposed to all the millions of other android tablets on the market?
I think it would be pretty bad form to boast about your sales when you are still making people wait 2-3 weeks to get the iPad they have paid for. Once Apple gets their demand-supply a little in sync, they will boast about this (or more likely wait till WWDC).
Ummm.....the only people who will be selling AAPL because of this are those who are REQUIRED to sell AAPL because they are indexed against the NASDAQ100. This is a great buying opportunity for others.
I don't understand this either. Was the inventor in question part of the company that sued Apple? Or was Mirror Worlds the company he sold it to? How was he going to make it freely available if he sold it to a company?Ironic about the Cover Flow bit, since Apple actually did not even develop themselves, but bought it from a 3rd party developer (who had a mac app named Cover Flow).Edit: It seems the professor owns or partially owns the company, according to the...
I thought Stringer was decently smart (although he has not been able to reverse Sony's decline). What does he even mean by the "Doesn't burn you" comment?
Good call on deducting the cash. Didn't have time to do it. The stock might even look slightly undervalued at this point. It seems people are not factoring in Apple's ability to bring in revenue from brand new markets. Its stunning that based on Sep 10 annual numbers (note, this only captures nearly 6 months of supply constrained iPad sales in an annual report), over 50% of their revenues were markets they did not even compete in 4 years ago.
Unless something changes dramatically, and iOS is indeed crushed by Android, this is unlikely. Apple has a relatively low PE for a tech stock of nearly 19, compared to about 22 for Google, 20+ for Oracle, ~24 for HP. Of course, you have MSFT and Dell which have PEs closer to 10, but Apple is a bigger growth stock than these for sure.I think the biggest reason the stock is down is uncertainty due to component delivery. Apple is at much greater risk because of this due to...
There will be hundreds of millions of people who might potentially buy an iPad when the ipad3 comes out. Apple doesn't need to bother about upgrading the old users. The market is young enough that new users will stretch their production capacity to the limits.
Steve Jobs came out really strongly against focus groups. I strongly doubt they use them. Although Apple is the pinnacle of design in the Tech world, they are not above coming up with some terrible designs themselves. Especially when they are in their "realism" phase (they keep yoyo-ing between minimalistic, and realistic designs). A classic example was the old Quicktime (?) volume control knob. A design fiasco.
Ugghhh....Thats okay in Full Screen view (which is why things like this look great on the iPad, which essentially becomes the app). But to have it in Windowed mode, where it clashes atrociously with other apps' consistent Window UIs is just a bad idea. At the end of the day though, this is just plain fugly.
