All I have to say is "hold".
I did a good amount of travel in Asia, even when I was working in QA at Apple. I see more people using Apple phones than in America over there. It's more of a prestige item than in the US. There so much growth potential in China alone, but Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, and the rest Japan, Korea, India. Man, Apple sure has a bright future, and that's just with their phones.
I would like to see this movie after being an Apple employee for many years. I worked on many projects at Apple before and after SJ came back but I never had any direct interaction with SJ except running into him in the hallways or the elevator. The closest I ever got to working with him was writing up bug reports that he had found in Keynote when I was on the QA team in productivity apps. But I do remember my manager, and his managers going on up, being frightened to...
I'm happy as long as Apple is above 100, I bought shares in 2004 and still holding and living from dividends. It's a shame that Apple can't get traction after that fantastic quarter.
I was excited about the watch it had the most coolest looking desktop, or home screen, I was looking forward to playing with the OS. But when I saw the thickness of the watch in store, and held one in my hands, and I played with the bubble type interface, I wasn't impressed. But there wasn't anything really wrong with it besides being a little thick, the problem is that it acted just like my phone, it wasn't really that different of an experience, just an extension of the...
Congratulations Randy. Early retirement rocks, I left Apple three years ago and I've never looked back. I loved my time there, but I love my time more In retirement. Enjoy yourself!
I worked in QA on the Mac side for 20 years (retired now), and I noticed the drop in quality occur when QA team's size were reduced and more automation testing was implemented over manual testing. I'm talking about specifically Mac OS and Mac hardware. Actually that started under Steve Jobs watch, but has continued since Cook took the helm.
Jeez at the rate AAPL is rising, they'll hit 135 next week. I'm going with my own 160 price one year out or even earlier like around Christmas '15. 200/shr in two years if all goes pretty well at Apple and in the global economy.
Good to hear Apple is coming to their senses. Many of us QA guys at Apple in the early 90's used to smoke it on weekend work days, and sometimes you could smell it lingering in the bathrooms in the Mariani One building. Oh, the good old days. Some guys would say it helped them find more bugs, Didn't do the same for me, I just got scared a manager would catch on (paranoid) :-)
I'll chime in as a new iPhone user. I never owned an iPhone before 6 came out. I had a Sony flip phone which I liked a lot, and it got me out of answering texts and emails when not at work. (it was an excuse to keep me from getting tied down to work in off hours basically). Then I got a Palm HP Veer after retiring, and I loved it, and I had a touchpad too. I loved the Palm OS and webOS, especially for the elegant interface and the easy to access settings in menus, and the...
