I find it interesting that the BBC focused their report on Apple. It's not like Foxconn, Pegatron and how they're all called also manufacture pretty much every other mobile device money can buy, with working conditions probably even worse.   Also, if they were interested in a truly relevant story for the UK, why didn't they do an insider report on the NHS? Working shifts of 14 hours over night are normal. Staff are so tired they fall asleep on the job too while...
Looks like Thunderbolt, much like FireWire in the older days, while originally way ahead of its time, will be reduced to a niche market of very specialist applications in due time. USB isn't bad by any means, but they simply lag behind the industry always, probably because it's such a big and complicated committee. After all it took Apple to take it to market with any meaningful success, although it had technically been available for at least a year.   As long as they...
Shame they didn't upgrade the DGPU, too. It's not like the 750M is still top of the line.
It's all good and well, but the stupid pencil is still not available to buy outside of North America. Fail.
This doesn't make any sense. From a parts point of view, the 8GB phone will be no more than 8$ cheaper than the 16GB version. Yet it is essentially a crippled device that will give a lot of users a bad first experience when they run out of space after putting a few songs on it and recording a few pics and vids or even just installing one of the bigger apps, such as TomTom or a game like Infinity Sword 3.   What they need is cut margins at the sales price. They're not...
Instantly reminded me of the Master in Fallout 1.  
Buying back stock without the intention of taking the company private all the way is a nonsensical Wallstreet move. Nothing is gained, no value is added from a perspective of the company. And that's the perspective I like to have when I make decisions concerning my investments.
If a valuation is only supposed to be based on the net profits a company gets each year, then yes, your logic would hold. In the old days, buying stock was called buying shares. Meaning you bought part of the company as a commitment, because you believed in what they did and wanted to help them finance new investments. That time is sadly long gone. People just care about their own profits now and the company as well as their work is irrelevant as long as the stock prices...
Stock is down 42.46$ as of this moment. It seems Apple has finally attracted the attention of "investors" that nobody really wants. It's a sick world we live in, where you can post a profit of over 13 billion and be punished for it by an 8% stock drop.   This is ridiculous.   P.S.: That also means by buying today, you'll make 8% profit within a week's time.
Instead of focusing on the currently still irrelevant fact that the SoC is only 32bit, you should have noticed that the camera is a 16MP phase detection autofocus unit. Autofocus right now is arguably the weakest point of Apple's cameras. If Samsung pulls this off well, this may take them a significant step ahead.
