I didn't care very much for Tim Cook giving Android cheap shots.  The less anyone says about Android, the better.  It's like giving them free publicity.  It's OK if they want to talk straight numbers and stuff but that's it.  I always consider it unprofessional to start poking at rivals.  Stress your company product's strong points and forget about rivals weaknesses.  Personally, I think it's a waste of time talking about Android or even their numbers.  Let Android take...
You keep forgetting that everyone on Wall Street is waiting for an iWatch that will sell in the tens of millions of units at $300 a pop.  Did you see any iWatch?  No.  Did you see any new AppleTV?  No.  So it makes sense that investors quickly sold off their shares because they can't make any money from Apple this week.  Wall Street wanted to see hardware, not software at the developers conference.  Software simply doesn't make investors salivate when it comes to Apple.
I think it's going to be very difficult for any other company to match what Apple is offering in terms of integration across platforms.  Only Apple does the hardware and software and is able to keep fragmentation out of the equation except for older devices.  I'm going to upgrade to Yosemite within a week of release after get user feedback and I find out if there are no major problems I'm good to go.  I really like it.  I don't concern myself with eye-candy and stuff.  I...
Considering how many pundits are still claiming how Apple is struggling for survival and the Apple is doomed meme is still in full force that Apple was able to climb up one more spot on the Fortune 500 list.  Maybe Apple should be on the Misfortune 500 list because investors are so afraid that Apple is falling further and further behind Google and Android.  I wonder where Google is on that Fortune 500 list since everyone says that Google is such a better company than Apple...
I've heard that Apple has nearly 700 million iOS devices in service so a close to 90% upgrade rate is rather impressive.  I'm guessing that there are devices that can't be upgraded because they're too old.  Compared to Android Apple is doing rather well by keeping everything up-to-date in terms of security.  A lot of Android devices take months to upgrade due to carriers taking their sweet time or not bothering to upgrade certain devices at all.  And yet Wall Street thinks...
I can't say much about one streaming company "killing" another but I'm sure if any company can monetize streaming music and make it profitable, Apple probably can.  It doesn't mean that Apple's streaming format or UI will be a lot better or suit everyone but iTunes along with Beats Music talent, should be able to work out some decent music play format.  I mainly like Spotify because it runs on many devices, I'm comfortable with the user interface and I can listen to whole...
It makes sense that Chinese regulators want subsidies cut.  They would rather the Chinese consumer buy the less expensive homegrown smartphones rather than buying higher-priced foreign brands.  There's nothing wrong with them trying to favor their own local brands.  However... Apple certainly does invest a lot of money into China and the Chinese consumer is certainly asking for Apple products, so I think everything will balance out and in the short-term Apple is not likely...
When the next iPhone goes on sale, all the analysts are going to be busting their asses trying to downplay record iPhone sales by claiming Apple has far more carriers so selling ten or so million iPhones the first weekend doesn't really mean all that much.  I feel certain Apple is going to break iPhone sales records with China Mobile and DoCoMo on board.  I don't seem much in the way of iPhone sales coming from India, though.  I think it's going to be hard for Apple to...
This would represent a good sample of others:  http://www.lightinthebox.com/c/android-tablets_4781/All-3?currency=USD&litb_from=paid_adwords_search&adword_mt=b&adword_ct=37964936731&adword_kw=%2Btablets&adword_pos=1s5&adword_pl=&adword_net=g&adword_tar=&gclid=CjgKEAjwkpacBRCNlprWw-u-nBwSJACwHiw-5xXM6wxQUlb1jz2Pr_Nw_7dRAZ7J1Qxi0l446R-5nfD_BwEThis is the type of crap that the iPad is being compared to.  I have no doubt that there are plenty of emerging nation consumers using...
Or go up higher if Apple gets added to the Dow.  I'm not getting greedy.  I'd like to see Apple hold this level for at least a couple of weeks and continue yearly dividend increases.  Apple isn't Priceline, Tesla or Netflix so I don't expect huge gains like they get.  However, if Apple clears the $650 mark by the end of the year, I'll definitely be satisfied.  I trust Apple will do what it needs to but I don't trust the stock market at all.  There are too many profitless...
