At $999 a pop I don't think there will be much demand. The only reason to buy one of Apple's  really expensive displays is becasue its about the only display on the market that can be daisy chained, to do that it has a TB  in and out port. Of course the laptop needs to be able to drive a lot of pixels , as in the MacBook Pro can support up to 6 displays. But anyone who can afford 6 x $999 dispolay isn't short of money!  I currently drive 3 X LG ($150) 24inch ultra wide...
There are and will be lots of USB-C hubs to buy so that it can be docked, connect to a big display, keyboard mouse, backup drive and powered at the same time. I am going to buy one as a backup so  that I can throw in a bag for on the road. It will really help for going thru airports, to keep weigh and size down in Europe when using Ryanair and Easyjet. Also for back here in the States for general mobile use
IF you  look at the chart starting on Nov 1st you see Apple falls away very fast down from just under the +40% line to just above the +20% line then it trades sideways for 3 rolls before rising  up to just over the +40%, a very slight increase in 3 1/3 monthIF you look at IBM over the same period it falls from about the -10% line down to just over the -20% line this IS NOT AS MUCH AS APPLE FELL over the same period then IBM recovered to just below where it was in Nov...
I would like to point out that Google NFC is not as strictly secure as Apple Pay and its not available on most Android phones. You need the later versions of Android to be able to use NFC with tokenization. And also  the reason  it is  not as secure  is the tokenization is not end to end between the POS device  and the Bank (the issuer). Intermediaries like the acquirer have access to the data i.e they can read what you bought and all your purchase info, so they can track...
I disagree , I prefer a device that adds better tech and is more expensive. $350 is not a lot of money nowadays, heck I spend $224 at costco yesterday for a couple of weeks groceries and other items. I spend $200 a month for gasoline, about $350 for utilities like water, gas and electric, trash removal/re-cyling and internet access. Paying $350 every couple of years is nothing in comparison. Heck my property taxes are $3600 per year. But I guess you ain't living in the...
Look at the chart Apple fell more last fall than IBM and is trading about the same level now using that as a starting point mid November. YOu can prove almost anything with a chart. No one could have known prior to IBM's bad earnings. Its so easy to prove a point in hind sight. Its tough to make predictions - so all that criticism  about Cramer endorsing that analyst is twaddle at best. A typical bad piece of journalism pretending to masquerade as sensible, which it isn't....
Listening to Tim Cook talking about those health apps got me thinking. Can you imagine just how jealous Google must be about all that health data.? They must be kicking themselves. Imagine if Schmitt hadn't given Apple the shaft and actually had worked WITH apple. There would be no Apple Maps and perhaps Google would have the chance to monitize some of that health data? But because Google is so evil and exploitive it has killed any chance of that and now Apple is going to...
Ben lives in London , so we are led to believe. Probably the most Big Brother society on the planet  right now with all its hi def monitoring . Makes sense he would  be so angry about that and tries to take it out on Apple. He hates anything that smells of liberation and  freedom. 
Well said and I would like to add a truism  which especially  applies to  our honorable friend Ben Frosty: Ben   "The things we dislike  about others are not the differences, but rather the similarities with ourselves" Perhaps  you might understand that Ben? but I fear not. But you never know, perhaps one day you might!and of course you are beating  off to this silly flame war
The original poster probably shorted the market and is wishing he hadn't and needs it to drop further to cover his short positions, I hope he gets killed , one less leech
