Consumer protection laws are different in different countries. In Japan it is a cultural/tradition thing to have these lucky bags and everyone including departmental stores does it. The customers know that it is a gamble and abide by the rules. Can you imagine this happening in the US? I can't. People will be screaming for refunds etc if they don't get what they want.
Other than stating the obvious after the fact, has Gene Munster gotten anything right in the last few years? His one claim to fame was that he was long Apple before the iPhone.
I had finger print sensors on most of my PC notebooks for years. Maybe even a decade. How is this going to be any different? It is the OS that needs to support it along with a strong developer kit that others can use to add it to apps. In my opinion Apple did it the right way, they launched it supporting only Apple, tested it for a year and then released it to the public a year later.
  Quote: You have it backwards. There were so many patents for sale that a group of companies got together to bid and buy the patents as a group so that they did not have to sue each other. Google was asked to join Rockstar but they declined because they wanted to make a separate bid for the patents and own everything themselves. They lost the bid and now they are paying the price for being greedy.
I am very curious why people are still trading GTAT stock? It is pretty much valueless because of the Chapter 11 filing, whatever the outcome, the share holders are the first to be screwed.   Whatever price it is at now is basically caused by the people that think that they can make a fast buck by gambling. It is pretty much like playing musical chairs except in this case, you really don't want a chair because it is full of spikes.
There is almost no way they can produce enough panels for the number of iPhone 6 and 6 plus being sold without a long period of stockpiling based on their existing output.
Ipad is a victim of its own success. There is really no pressing need to upgrade if you have an iPad 2 or later because it is still good enough. It is also more of a consumption device meaning as long as it can handle content, users wont feel a need to upgrade. Lastly it is also not a phone, meaning the standard upgrade cycle of 1 to 2 years don't apply. It is more in line with a computer which is about 3 years.
1 million more of the top of the line iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Last year, the number included the iPhone 5C.
Android seems to have a huge market share because even toasters are running Android.The real market share for mobile phones is a lot less. Just look at the device usage data from marketing firms and the number seems to be an even split.
Gene Munster... queue circus clown music please.
