Maybe Steve Jobs is going to get his thermonuclear wish.  It will be interesting to see Samsung going up in a cloud of ashes.  My biggest wish will be to see Apple Pay crush the living daylights out of Google Wallet.  I'm getting tired of hearing those Google executives boasting about how Google Wallet was first in 2011 and Apple Pay is copycat crap.  Time for Google to get its comeuppance.
Let's blame Tim Cook for not being Apple to compensate for expected, unexpected iPhone demand.  If Steve Jobs were alive, this would never have happened.  Apple is in big trouble if they can't sell 15 million iPhones in one weekend.  Why should anyone use Apple Pay if Tim Cook can't even get a handle on iPhone production.  Only 540,000 iPhones a day from Foxconn?!!! I thought the iPhone was going to be a SUCCESSFUL product but it looks as though it's falling short of Wall...
Exactly.  Google has been bragging about its Google Wallet since its introduction in 2011 and boasting about how almost every Android smartphone has NFC chips, and Android major market share and how Apple is so far behind.  You'd think Google Wallet would have dominated the whole mobile payment market by now.  No.  And Google is too busy talking about how Apple Pay is going to be a huge failure because it's not cross-platform or something of the sort.  Google thinks it's...
I could see it being sold as a numbered limited edition model.  I can't afford it but it would be a nice collector's item and I'm sure the value would appreciate somewhat over time being the first Apple smartwatch.  It's a great way for Apple to make more money and it's likely those limited edition AppleWatches would sell out in a short time.  Apple's always got some way to attract consumers with plenty of cash.
I doubt the Android manufacturers are worried.  They'll do what they do best.  Cut prices to the bare minimum and on new tablets they'll just add even more features.  There's nothing Samsung won't do in order to beat Apple in smartphone and tablet market share.  Samsung's next Galaxy will have an even faster processor, greater display resolution, more camera pixels, etc. just to make the iPhone look bad in terms of specs.  It probably won't help Samsung sell a lot more...
Sapphire is the new Liquidmetal.  A new pipe dream.  All the talk about revolutionary materials comes to naught.  I don't become disappointed anymore if these things don't get used.  It's always exciting to speculate on how things could be even if they don't come to pass.  Who knows?  Maybe while I'm still alive, I'll eventually see these specialized materials being used in quantity in some Apple product.
How does Samsung manage to put out a new smartwatch or two every month and yet it takes Apple over a year to do two variants of the same AppleWatch.  I'm not complaining.  I simply don't understand why there's such a huge difference in manufacturing time.  Maybe it's not the hardware but all the software and partnerships that's behind it.
The Fire Phone just came out a short while ago and already Jeff Bezos is practically giving it away.  I'm fairly certain there will be no cries from analysts to sell Amazon.  I don't understand why some companies are praised for losing money and others are damned because they don't make enough.  This price slashing clearly shows that the Fire Phone is not selling well and I honestly don't think this sale is going to boost the number of units sold to any major degree.  I...
Apple doesn't do panamaxes.  iPhone shipments are entirely airfreight.  It's a lot quicker that way and a bad storm won't cause Apple to lose an entire shipment of millions of devices.  I still think people are simply guessing that Apple is tying up all those shipments.  Certain anti-Apple factions try to blame Apple for all sorts of nonsense.  Samsung ships far more smartphones than Apple ever did by a factor of two.
