Pump-and-dump  much there?The term "investing" nowadays might as well be re-labeled as a card game at a Las Vegas Casino.  People with the attention-span of a gnat can't think long-term strategies anymore.  They want immediate results. Apple makes an obscene amount of money every quarter.  The not only dominate the mobile sector, but also desktops, computers, and consumer-services like music and media.  Apple-Pay is gaining traction.  The AppleWatch in the few months it's...
f@ck!ng idiots.  What an amazing job an analyst has to literally make sh!t up and get paid lots of money for it.  At one point does anyone that regulates the market, seeing how they are gaming the system, take notice of the manipulation?
Why does Apple even "need to be transparent about their hiring practices"??  They are not discriminating in their hiring practices.  70% of their staff are white males?  So what?  Do you think some head guy at Apple is telling HR to only hire white engineers, or asian ones?  I know you don't think so.  They are hiring the best-qualified HUMANS for the job at hand that they are introduced to.  Key word - "introduced".What you propose should always be done regardless of what...
F**k you Lee.  I'm a minority (latino) and I couldn't care any less about a company - or any company - having to have some sort of "diversity goal" to appease people like Lee.  All they care about is making themselves look good, period.Apple is only required to hire the best and most qualified people be they white, asian, black, latino, alien... whatever.  Lee is "whispering" Apple to hire people based on race and that really irks me.  If engineers are predominantly white...
I firmly believe when ApplePay is common in necessary - and less public congested - areas like gas stations, it will really take off from there.  I think many people don't want to fiddle with it at a grocery-store for fear something would not work quite right and then they worry about holding up the line.At a gas station when you're more by yourself and not really impacted by people waiting directly behind you it will give them a bit of breathing room to try it out and get...
While the analysts are toasting to gaming the system at the expense of everyone else... Tim Cook is looking down too, laughing as he write another check from the petty-cash fund to buy back AAPL at a great discount.  Eventually, those analysts are going to be begging for scraps since their well will eventually run dry.
So here goes the typical (and predictable) rinse-and-repeat cycle of AAPL. Analysts buy AAPL, pump up AAPL Just before announcement, they short AAPL also, Apple misses "expectations" by one unit, Market stupidly reacts, free-for-all downhill Wall Street sits back laughing at the stupidity of gullibility of people Profit. Heck, I might as well start playing that game too...
I'm confused... yeah, I don't know know.  "Could be spread by email" sounds a little vague to me for some reason.  It either can, or cannot be.  I think the article could be better written.  There's some specifics missing.
If it's just like the original Thunderstrike, it requires physical access to the computer as it uses a flaw in the Thunderbolt implementation.  So for just about everyone concerned, it's a non-issue. It's great that Apple is taking care of the flaws.  It'll be patched before anything can happen.  Poor PC folks though.  Good luck getting any support for their system.
It sounds like you're wanting the iMac to be treated as a professional-level machine, when in reality it is not, and never has been.  Your issues with it are exactly what the Mac Pro is meant to address.Most iMac users will never crank-up their machines to fan-blasting levels consistently.  Sure, there may be the occasional one, but should Apple engineer the systems to address the 1-2% of those times?  I don't think so.I occasionally get the fans going on my 2009 iMac when...
