Anything Google does will be praised by Wall Street and the news media, just as anything Apple does will be scorned by Wall Street and the news media.  It's just a matter of how some people see Apple.  They obviously think that Tim Cook isn't a competent CEO and that's why they're always referring back to Steve Jobs.  Google Glass is pretty much of a waste and so is the Glass barge.  Neither of them have much value or add to Google's bottom line.  You're right.  None of us...
How the hell can anyone predict the sales of an unknown product?  It becomes even more difficult when it's a completely unannounced product.  These analysts are allowed to get away with too much freedom of conjecture and they really take themselves too seriously.  Even if he is being paid to spread nonsense, why in the world would anyone give credence to him as being a reliable source.
You know what their strategy is for the low-end Chinese smartphones is?  Build more variety of smartphones with higher specs than the competition.  That's only going to eat into their profits more if they try that.  Samsung is fighting against rivals who's only desire is to gain market share at the expense of profits.  Unless Samsung can come up with some really unique smartphone, they're not going to succeed.  From what I've seen in the past, trying to hold onto market...
Looking at Apple's share price collapse today, I take it Wall Street must be thinking the same thing will happen to Apple as it did to Samsung.  I'd say that's a pretty far-fetched way of thinking if that's the case.  For Samsung, it's the high-end Galaxy S5 not selling all that well and those tens of millions of low-end devices that are eating away at Samsung's profits.  They're going to have the same problem Nokia had trying to hold onto all that market share.  Some of...
Apple could simply buy one of those cable companies if the Feds allowed it and run that cable company as it sees fit using its own hardware.  I say simply because I'm guessing its just a matter of how much money Apple would be willing to pay or rather the cable company be willing to accept.  Buying a cable company is probably the only way Apple could get it done and fix its subscriber pricing accordingly.  Although with Apple behind it, I don't know how it could ever come...
I think we're going to have to wait for any random projects to get done when the new headquarters is finished.  Apple has practically run out of space and I'm sure spreading employees all around different campuses is rather unwieldy.  I like Apple to tackle some pie in the sky projects that have almost no ties to Apple's current business.  Apple has all the cash in the world to go pursue purely humanitarian projects.
Apple recently filed with the FCC Apple's own iBeacon hardware, so apparently Apple will make money from eventually selling the hardware.  I also wondered what was taking so long with Apple and yet other companies were already selling iBeacon hardware.  It's likely that those companies got licenses and paying Apple for the privilege of being first movers.  Some companies are selling iBeacon hardware from $10 to $20 apiece, so Apple would have to sell tens of millions of...
Why is it that Apple doesn't explain this to shareholders or potential investors?  Why doesn't Apple attempt to confront these research agencies if they're actually lying about the data.  I know that Apple doesn't have to explain anything because quarterly earnings speak for themselves, but if these research agencies are fraudulent then they need to be exposed.  Why is that Windows tablets are being counted but not iPads?  iPads now run Windows Office so it isn't as though...
I'd like to know what is the exact reason why Apple's valuation is as low as it is.  I'm guessing there's no formula to figure that out but does it have something to do with the business they're in, the fact that only the iPhone is making so much money for them or is it something like investors simply don't trust Tim Cook's judgment of running the company properly?  I'd find it very hard to believe investors look at Apple products and say they're not good enough for...
What results?  Wall Street still believes Apple is doomed due to companies like Xiaomi who have increased  the quality of their smartphones so much as to put great pressure on iPhone sales.  Analysts believe R&D is worth very little and Apple doesn't have enough money to build increasingly better products than their less wealthy rivals.  Wall Street obviously doesn't think that high R&D spending can bring back "innovation" to Apple because "Apple innovation" was supposedly...
