Given Tim and Elon already had "that" meeting, or so we've been led to believe, I doubt the talk between Ive and Musk would be a starting point for collaboration.  Frankly speaking, I can see Elon asking Ive for help in fixing the design of the front end of the S and X.  It's been a sore point (for Tesla) for an otherwise great looking car.
Jony Ive isn't exactly the decision maker for Apple, so any conversations with Elon could simply have been related to non-business related matters. Maybe Elon is interested in the Watch? Maybe Ive wants one of the P85D cars? Although anything is possible, it's highly unlikely that their talk would have any implications on what may or may not be happening at Apple with regards to a car.
The fact that they calculated awards based upon hardware sales will be the thing that gets a reversal for Apple.
Wow, do those watches look old-school. And not in a good way.
As noted, I think the reason the press has grabbed a hold of this rumor is that when you think about product categories that Apple could get into, where there is significant room for product improvement (which is what Apple does best), while still offering them the ability to make big money, there are only a few options. The television set, btw, is not one of them. Although I'm sure Apple could sell more tv's than they could produce, they would need to either sell at...
For once, I agree with Icahn. Apple is, and has always been, undervalued, especially when compared to other companies in the tech sector - even though tech is just part of what makes Apple who they are. It's great to see investors pushing Apple positive to make their money, instead of the typical "analysts" who throw out crap bad "news" about Apple in order to drive the price per share down so they make their money on shorting the stock.
I would guess he's probably close with his predictions.  The iPad has likely hit close to its saturation point and given the size increase in iPhones, many people, myself included, use the iPad much less and have less reason to upgrade.   Going bigger will simply open up a percentage of the market that wants / needs a bigger screen size, but I don't see it being a game changer that gets millions to upgrade from the iPad 4, Air and Air 2.     I'm not even convinced a...
I always find it interesting how borrowing money to do stock buybacks, when you have cash on hand, makes more sense. It tells me our tax system isn't working right.
Stock manipulation happens all the time and given Apple's size and the amounts of money to be made, even small swings based upon negative or flat analyst predictions can have huge payouts to their investors or the firms themselves. If any of them deny they're doing exactly that - manipulating the market, then they should be fired for being more wrong about Apple on a consistent basis, than just about any publicly traded company.
As long as your phone is plugged in, in the car or at home, there is zero need to press a button. Just say Hey Siri and whatever you want "her" to do. That's kind of the point with Siri hands free. As soon as you have to start pushing buttons, you're back to being distracted.
