  I am hoping Apple will at least meets the consensus, which is $7.30, down 30% from a year ago. Trailling TTM EPS will drop to $41, down from $44, rising the P/E. I must admit Apple future looks pretty dark ATM, its looks like we will get the worst case scenario, which is significant EPS decline.  Its a shame.    You always hope Apple will pull an ace off its sleeves, but so far we are not getting anything.  All we are getting is tasteless incremental upgrades with a...
  I seriously hope Apple does better than that this year. And I am hoping for 3 phone models that I would personnaly name: iPhone 6 LT (low cost phone, 4" screen, same iPhone 5 screen) iPhone 6 (Middle range phone, 4" screen, 720P resolution, IGZO) IPhone 6 XL (high end phone, 5" screen, 1080p resolution, IGZO)
The iOS 7 interface is great imo, it reminds me of start trek next generation interface, which is neat and optimize for functions over looks.     But Apple is absolutely NOT leading anything with it, its just FOLLOWING the flat interface trend. There is some minor innovations and despite a lot of elements being taking out of various other OS's, the final product is still unique.   This OS will be good enough to drive existing and new products for the next few...
  You live under a rock? we been getting Year over Year profits declines for a while.     Next quarter EPS consensus is $7.30, last year results was $9.32 Last quarter EPS was $10.09, last year results was $12.30 The december quarter was flat, $13.81 VS $13.86   Between the beginning of 2012 and the end of the that year, Apple went from 80% YoY growth to no growth. Now its on the decline. People thinking everting is peachy are in denial...
  This is what I expect too.  They will the ditch the 3.5 screens. Other than that I hope they will have 2 models at the high end, one 4" screen and one 5" screen.
  In Canada they are on the Bell network, so coverage is great. In the USA its on the Sprint network.
  this looks $100 off retail prices to me, unless I am missing something. The way virgin works in canada is you get a "balance" on the phone that is reduce each month by 10% of the amount of youre plan. So if you take a $40 plan, each month the "balance" will be reduce by $4. In the US, its possible the $550 will come with a $100 balance (someone should check this out)   My wife iphone (unlock) is on Virgin in Canada, they have by far the best prices here. Has soon as my...
  Of course it doesnt align with Apple desire, powerfull HTML5 tools is an ecosystem destroyer. But, from my experience, interpreted code will always underperform native apps.   On the plus side you can develop a single app for Windows,OS-XAndroid, iOS, ... and avoid paying a cut to the app store. On the down side, the app store is a powerful marketing tool and graphic intensive apps just wont work in HTML5 unless the hardware is overkill for them.   I can see in the...
  Go point. HBOGo makes sense for subscribers since they are not home or maybe lying down outside. But imagine if the Apple TV were to be able to handle the cable feeds directly, then you could have everything under one device. Now that is something I want, integration of everthing in one device, thats would be progress for the TV markets.   Then imagine you could plug in that device on a monitor, then we would have one piece of hardware, no cable mess, all merge into one...
  This is a major factor that most internet only TV dreamers just wont get.  Pretty much all of the major networks and channels have ties to the Cable industry. So on top of technical problems related to distribution over the net of live feeds, the source material just wont allow it.   The only thing that could worked is if companies like Netflix succeed in making there own content and becomes the new "HBO" by providing material that's only available over the net....
