I'm afraid everyone already knows that a 64-bit processor and OS on a smartphone is merely an Apple marketing gimmick.  It's the number of cores, system RAM and clock speed that really makes a difference to users.  64-bit processing will only be important when Android gets it because Android has 90% market share, so anything the iPhone has isn't considered relevant or useful.  When the Galaxy S6 gets a 64-bit processor that's when Apple will be in "deep, deep trouble"...
Yet the only thing Wall Street can say is how Apple is going to get commoditized right out of the consumer electronic business and the company has no future potential.  Apple is not announcing any layoffs and is certainly not closing any stores and still Wall Street refuses to acknowledge how strong a company Apple is.  I honestly don't understand this reasoning at all.  Apple's share price is still well down for the year while the rest of the tech companies are on a tear....
It's true that those ads are annoying but there's nothing that can be done about it.  Google is running a business and those ads pay for those millions upon millions of Youtube videos and the whole infrastructure that supports them.  I'd rather have those ads then to see Youtube go away or have to pay a subscription fee for it.  At least a user still has the option of skipping an ad.  I don't think there's any free service that can exist without ads.  However, Apple could...
What do you mean by Google has little to show?  A couple of years ago both Apple and Google had similar share prices.  Google is now at a mighty $1200 a share and Apple is at a measly $520 a share.  I'd say shareholders got more value out of Google than they did out of Apple.  Apple's cheap nickel and dime acquisitions will never get investors excited as a company getting blockbuster acquisitions.  Google has left Apple in the dust as far as Wall Street is concerned.
Tim Cook starting a private war with Wall Street will only cause Apple to lose more shareholder value as the stock will only continue to get punished due to investors looking elsewhere for gains.  Gains through companies that care little about things like climate change and are more interested in returning shareholder value to investors.  You won't find too many CEOs telling investors to "take a hike" which is basically telling all of Wall Street not to invest in the...
Tesla would still be the better buy.  Wall Street has already stated that Apple's hardware business is completely ruined due to low-cost Android devices.  Apple needs a completely new revenue stream that doesn't involve smartphones or tablets.  This new graphics chip would be like adding whipped cream on top of a stale cake (as far as Wall Street is concerned).  Tesla would bring a whole slew of new technologies to Apple and Elon Musk's foresight.  Apple isn't short on...
In running a business the job of the marketing department and public relations department is to push the company's products as being the best a customer can buy and at least attempting to exercise damage control over negative rumors about the company.   Apple is being just plain foolish to simply let the competition screw them over like that in the news media.  Apple knows exactly what will happen when their rivals smear the company with anti-Apple ad campaigns.  It...
You do have a valid point.  Troops preoccupied with playing Angry Birds or Candy Crush will likely cost us a war or two.
Why doesn't Apple simply built itself a search engine?  Wall Street says that Google has no competition and it would seem like a wide-open market where Apple could make some money by putting its own search engine on all Apple products as default.  Apple would then become more like Google of having a business that is just like becoming part of the internet.  If Google is seen as having unlimited growth in search then Apple should also get itself some unlimited growth...
Investors have been stepping aside from Apple since the infamous share price fiasco in 2012 when Apple handed over the smartphone market to Samsung.  There's probably no recovery from that.  It definitely left Wall Street and Apple shareholders with a bitter taste in their mouths.  Most successful companies with wads of cash don't give their market share position away that easily.  Even after this recent buyback Apple shares are still stuttering and misfiring like some...
