a growth in earnings and subscribers is a terrible effect of this backfire;-) The real reason... TMo likely didn't have the cash/credit on hand to buy enough phones for that 10 day sales blitz at the end of the quarter, but most of this was the lull of no one buying iPhone 5 phones during the quarter, waiting for the 5c/5s release... not their unsubed phones... which are plentiful as people switch or sell their 'old' phones.
As stated earlier... Apple doesn't have a demand problem... it has a supply problem.  They can't make enough of their high margin product.   This is likely part of the reason they likely didn't include TouchID in the iPads this year... just not enough supplier pipeline. as for price...  Apple makes it's money on the uplifts (LTE and Flash)... that the base unit price is probably right for a 'no customer surprise'  plan (that's the best thing about apple... they don't...
too much... 12" 128GB  (256GB  it too much for a company that is driving to a cloud storage model)Touch ID No more than $999... it will replace the MBA 11" in the price point range.and 899 for a 64GB model.Question would be would they build a 32GB model?  So you have .99(5c)  99(6c) 199((6c/6s)  299 (6s/Mini)  399(MiniRD,old Air 16) 499(new TouchID Air16) 599(New Air32) 699 (new Air64) 799(new air128/Pro32) 899(pro64) 999(pro 128) 1099 (MBA13/128) This again is a...
This is conceivable. I think the MBA 11" is next on the chopping block (and the 13" Macbook Pro  nonRD).  by 2015 I wouldn't be surprised to see 4" iphone 5s6" iphone 68" iPad Mini RD10" Ipad Air (rd)12" Ipad Pro (rd)13" MacBook Air13" MacBook Pro (rd)15" Macbook Pro (rd)21" iMac27" iMac27" iMac Pro (4K)Mac Mini Mac Pro  (4K)27" Cinema Display (4K)40" Cinema display (4K)Apple TV 3 (4K) This is a simple and compelling product swath
OS X... not gonna happen (soon).   at least not in a 'my mother's iPad and Mac merging into one' pleasing sort of way (to my mother).a VDI... for sure... that exists now. The inverse will happen at least on a small scale.  A-Series chips will replace X86 (intel may still be in the picture... but not at the x86 premiums).  Changing the computer is a heckuva lot easier than changing the UX of OSX apps. It's all about the expected interface.
and the fact that incremental improvements are matching the cost curve of consumer devices. Once there is a demand for graphene batteries  where performance:cost:size envelope is not consumer focused (manned space exploration, military, state sponsored intelligence gathering ;-(, or baubles for the insanely rich) it will knee over the post piece production to mass production cost cycle.   (and all the back pressure from established industries  as well...  Think Tesla vs...
Agreed and piling on.... Fewer/brighter LEDs also can mean that they have found a more efficient LED on the power curve.  Rule of thumb:  1 bulb of 2X wattage is brighter than 2 bulbs of 1X wattage (more efficient), but diffusing that light then dampens the gain (less effective).   A better back coating for diffusion and a more efficient LED would mean less net wattage necessary for the same percieved brightness, and therefore less power demand (smaller battery).
to some people it is significant. Hey... this is like a faster processor, a bigger screen, longer battery life, HDMI interfaces... the iPad will lose on many single point shootouts.Great for kindle... it's designed to have a fantastic display.  and I think Amazon is in the end the real competitor in the tablet wars... Samsung just doesn't have an ecosystem.     Now... would you want to run your business on a kindle?  can you play decent games on a Kindle?  Is it easy to...
700 at a time is a good number.   Apple is doing the what it can, which isn't much.  I'm a recovering capitalist, and I see Apple like any corporate giant.  They'd love to make all their phones in countries where they are sold, but most countries aren't set up to make that profitable (or 'as profitable'.)    You can't complain about a $500 stock price  being too low, and a $399 ipad mini being too high, and then say Apple isn't hiring enough Americans for it's factories....
err.. actually the US was built on the backs of African slaves, who had no choice in the matter.   And a lot of white people still hate non-white people, and they feel they can define 'whiteness' based on a social norm. (italian americans weren't considered white for the longest time by federal statute, nor were (are?) Iranians... who by definition are the basis of whiteness (Iranian is derived from the same root as Aryan).
