What do the Wintards usually say about Apple product sell-outs? Apple always gives stores only a very limited supply of inventory so that the products run out quickly and then Apple can hype it up to the media as extremely high demand. The Wintards usually explain away the long lines as extremely slow customer service so customers get backed up around the block to boost the media hype that consumers will willingly wait in line for Apple products. So, how many MacBook...
What type of panicky jackasses are dumping Apple stock on this relatively expected news that was bound to come sooner or later. Did Apple stop selling products? Did consumer demand for iPhones and iPads suddenly stop? Will consumers stop buying from Apple retail stores? Is the company going to collapse overnight? What the hell gives with these traders? I understand that Steve has stepped down, but that doesn't mean he won't be giving any input to future products. ...
Droid does! It does allow malware.
I'll go out on a limb and make a bold prediction. The iPhone will likely take back most of the market share it's lost to Android in the U.S. in a year or so. If the iPhone is available on all carriers at a cost only slightly higher than the most expensive Android smartphones, why would the average consumer choose Android smartphones? Some might want a physical keyboard and some might want Flash, some may want 4G or a 4.3" display. But I'll bet that will only add up to...
They're called CNC "milling" machines, not CNC lathes. It appears as though Apple is up to its old tricks as the Wintards like to say. Deliberately holding back inventory to hype the products. After all, if consumers aren't buying Wintel PCs, why would they be buying overpriced Apple products?
What a bunch of crap. I installed iTunes, repaired permissions and rebooted the computer. I made sure that my mp3 files targeted the new iTunes and clicked Change All. I still can't get artwork to show in the icons in any Finder view for my recently made mp3 files. Copied older mp3 files that do have artwork in the icons, lose the artwork as soon as it's copied to another folder. You'd figure Apple could fix something as simple as that, fer crissakes. In all the...
Those schools want a tablet platform with a future and support and maybe some other incentives. Supposedly they'll need 15 million tablets over a four year period. The TouchPad is officially out of production. HP is in no position to offer those Turks a tablet that's already end-of-life. However, maybe there are some schools or institutions that could use those TouchPads, but what about support. I have to say that writing off $100 million in unsold inventory is...
Maybe if you never take it out of the box. There would still be over 200,000 of them with quite a number of people thinking the same thing you are. If you're under 20 years of age and live to 80 you actually might get twice the price you paid for it. Just joking. I honestly don't think you'll ever get much for it as a collector's item.
Because jackass analysts and Wall Street like to spin it that way likely for reasons of manipulation. They're either fools or liars and I suspect they're both. There is no guarantee that having the highest market share will make a company or platform a successful one if they're throwing away profits for the sake of market share. Examples: Nokia, Dell, Acer, HP. I don't understand how people that are supposed to be brilliant in the way of finance can push such crooked...
All Apple needs to do is to continue boosting iPad 2 production and everything will take care of itself. Apple currently has all the leverage in the tablet market and just needs to keep applying pressure. As long as there is an ample supply of iPads for consumers, then Apple has nothing to worry about from rival tablet vendors. There would be absolutely no reason for consumers to even consider moving to Android tablets. It all going to be up to Foxconn and Pegatron to...
