Same here. Multiple macs, iPads, and an iPhone, and no issues at all. And while outages don't necessarily affect all users, headlines about "global outages" certainly carry that kind of implication (even if there's a reading of "a few users scattered around the globe").
So ... Apple will perform at the upper end of their own forecasted range, while analysts have been touting all kinds of rubbish to manipulate the stock. Maybe investors will learn to simply follow Apple's guidance from now on ...
Well, there's nothing in her report that wasn't already "established" via previous rumours, so there's not much disclosure happening here.
It's highly doubtful Apple would be able to simply take over the contracts with record companies of any company it buys out. I'm sure those deals allow for renegotiations if the companies are bought.
Much as I love apple gear, I really don't see myself wearing either and iWatch or Glass ... far too intrusive and geeky. But then, I still think people look daft, like they're talking to themselves, when using bt headsets. Maybe geeky really is the new cool.
Well, maybe it'll take some sales from Samsung, and we know HTC pays Apple for each one sold. Win, win.
Google implicitly controls the press, and especially the blogosphere, since those outlets rely in google news to draw attention to them. So of course they aren't going to be be critical. More to the point, this isn't news. As noted above, people must know they're giving up privacy when they go the google route. They're effectively selling their privacy to pay for the products and services google provides. Live with it. Apple transgressions are news, in contrast, because...
Ford says Mondeo has 2L engine just like 3 series BMW, but is much cheaper.
I can't imagine Apple trying to sell this only in developing markets. They've never done such a thing, and it would create a very unseemly grey market industry. The challenge is for them to find a product that appeals in developing markets, as well as in Europe and the US (i.e. for kids, or people who just want a decent phone ... those people do still exist), without taking too much from the flagship iPhone sales.    One issue is how much memory they'll put in this thing....
I'm not sure the 6 month cycle is great. Apple has been able to command a premium in part because the products had an enduring "I've got the latest" cache. A 6 month cycle actually encourages people to wait for the next upgrade (and then maybe the next), and even then it's not clear as many people will be prepared to pay the premium for something that'll soon be "the old model". That said, this applies more to a new March mini, since the iPad 4 wasn't really a new iPad...
