I expect really good margins this quarter, which would be hard for even Wall Street to ignore. The should sell tons of phones, with higher ASPs than usual, and the margins on iPads should be better than they have been in quarters past, too, I think. The margins on the iPads were pretty low when they started out, but I think they have been creeping up. I think the outlook for next quarter should be strong too, given the growth in China (and upcoming Chinese New Year).
 Yeah. I've been thinking maybe they wanted to start with the iMac to get it out for the holiday season, and then when they're able to increase production they will most likely come out with a stand-alone 5k display for the so-called pro market as well. I've been wanting to get a new Mac Pro, but I figured I'd wait until they come out with an upgraded display, since it seems imminent and overdue.
I'm pretty sure it was a mistake, either by a manual trader or an HFT system. The stock dropped $5.73 between 9:50 and 9:51 AM. Traders would only intentionally dump that much stock that fast if there was a major news event (e.g. California fell into the sea). They would have to be sure that the stock was going to be worth a lot less in a matter of seconds. Otherwise, they would sell it in small lots to minimize the market impact. Both types of errors do occur, though....
The thing about four speakers seems unlikely, since you would only need three for stereo sound in portrait and landscape.
I got my 6 on the first day, and I'm mostly used to it now, but I admit that I did see somebody using a 5s on the subway yesterday and felt a little envy, due to the size. I've gotten used to what for me is a more awkward experience. I doubt Apple will regret the decision soon, since they seem to be selling like crazy, but I do hope they offer a smaller top-tier device in the future. I might have traded my 6 in for a 5s if they still offered it with 64gb, but of course the...
That's because he's British! It's much more prevalent in British English. According to the OED, it's been used in this way since 1607.
Your sarcasm is inappropriate, but let me clarify a few points:The useful things in your list here are heart rate, and not having to take your phone out of your pocket. All of the other things you list can be accomplished by your phone, which you will still have to carry around, so what the watch is enabling you to do is not take your phone out. And I suspect that responding to messages and calls would be better with the phone in many cases, if not most.Even if everything...
I hope he's right, but these estimates (units and ASP) seem a bit optimistic to me, for a few reasons. When the iPad launched, it could already do a number of pretty useful things quite well, and in some cases better than any other device: surfing the Internet, watching movies, ultra-portable computing, etc. and it was relatively easy for developers to modify their iOS apps to work well on the iPad. I haven't heard of a lot of useful things that the Apple Watch does well,...
These numbers (if true) are more about availability than anything else. Apple is selling every phone they can make, so sales percentages just reflect manufacturing capacities. And I like my 6, but if I could have paid $100 more for a smaller screen and form factor, I definitely would have. I really hope they make the 7 available in a size conducive to one-handed operation.
I saw something yesterday that said 10M of their 40M subscribers are paid subscribers, but the ad-supported accounts are also generating revenue, of course. The music is "free" in the same way that a movie or sports event is "free" on network television, but I'd be surprised if networks spend 70% of their revenues on programming, as Spotify does.A musician friend of mine was recently complaining that he'd had something like 40,000 listens on Spotify and received some...
