It's a good discussion. I take analysts predictions like this as merely a "what if" scenario. I will use the numbers quarter by quarter to see if they track on this trajectory. Nevertheless, a huge part of the valuation in the future will rely in the further growth outlook at that time. Even if Apple hits all of Zaky's sales and earnings milestones, the perception of future growth will have a significant impact then. We also have the complexity of Apple beginning to...

He has his view, but it is irrelevant on this point. I find his reporting and interpretation for the lay person to...
The beta is quite nice and I got even more out of it by watching several of the "my favorite features" videos on the net.
Amazing all the things Apple has to do to educate the market in response to those looking to find fault with their new products.
