Einhorn won his lawsuit. Fine. But, is he getting his iPrefs? No way.   What is going to happen is that Apple will:   a) increase dividend, or b) increase share buyback, or c) a combination of both.   I am betting that they will do a combination of both.  Increasing dividend will provide some support to the stock as yield will increase.  They can announce a big additional share buyback, but they can take their time repurchasing shares.  It gives them...
  The whole iPrefs idea is stupid.  There is no such thing as unlocking value through "financial engineering."  You cannot restructure the liability side of the balance sheet and increase the value of the company.   Apple's balance sheet is strong, pristine, and uncomplicated.  That's the way I like it.  The liability side has only Equity and Cash.  Don't need no stupid preferreds.    Apple is trading where it is because the the entire Wall Street "herd" has come to the...
Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but it looks like they have cut SSD prices across the board.  For all MBPs and MBAs.
Very, very smart.  There are many who will buy the most storage capacity available, even if they never use all of it.  Apple must have done their analysis to figure out the demand for this.   Could also be the first step towards rationalizing the product line.  Retina mini iPad with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.  Retina big iPad with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.  Or, something like that.  Kind of like the Macbook Pro line.
I believe Boot Camp does not (yet) work on the 3TB Fusion Drive (just the 1TB Fusion Drive).  Don't know if Apple will fix this in the future.
Amazon has cut prices to match Best Buy (except for the 11" 64GB, as of now).   By now, Apple must have been able to reduce production costs substantially, so that reducing prices may not impact gross margins.  If sales go up as a result, then that is good.  Also, Apple may be getting ready for a restructuring of the Macbook product line. The retina prices need to come down.
That's why he is known as "Larry, the Rat."  Looks like one, too. 
  The tech specs say that all 4 slots on the 27 are user-accessible.  That means no soldered RAM.  All 4 slots can be filled or re-filled by the user.
  IMacs are not available.  When they do next quarter, they will sell like hotcakes.   13" rMBPs are too expensive. $1,699 for 128GB SSD?  Not many buyers at these prices, I'm guessing.   Mac Pro's will be refreshed next quarter/year.  Who would buy now?   Mac mini's are probably selling at the same rate as before.  The Fusion Drive is a major attractive feature.   That leaves Macbook Airs (very attractive price/feature combinations), 15" rMBP (somewhat well-priced - at...
Not 3.  4.   Bezos is working on the first Quadraphonic Kindle.  With 3D screen.  See if you can beat that, Apple!
