1a) How many such predictions did he make in the last two years?
      1b) How many came true?

2a) How many others made similar predictions? 

2b) What did he predict that others did not?
    2b/a) Which of those came true?

2c) What did others predict that he did not?
    2c/a) Which of those came true?

Unless you can provide us that data, take your spurious nonsense about how good he (or she) is somewhere else (where you think it might work).

I'm reminded of that story of Oscar Wilde seeing the Niagara Falls for the first and saying that it he'd might've been impressed if flowed the other way. I think you're spirit is right, these predictions and who is or isn't accurate doesn't matter because it isn't going to mean anything in a year when the products are on your desk or in your pocket (or on your wrist) on a normal ass Tuesday afternoon. But I think you people are wrong when you dismiss him as just another analyst. He's been pretty damn accurate, and sometimes when others have been wrong.

Apple should just can the finger scanner -- nobody wants more biometrics big brother spying or information gathering on their devices, iCloud ramifications are bad enough already in light of government PRISM spying.  

 

I NEVER used the finger scanner on the work Windows laptop I had -- simply a waste.  Give us Direct Connect walkie talkie functionality with a dedicated programmable button on the side instead -- something I would actually use!

See, we've already somehow taken for granted that they're working on one at all, when there's absolutely no reason to think that.

Apple will introduce a $449  iPhone in multiple colors that will probably sell for free or zero on contract. I am surprised people actually think this won't happen. 

I said that about 2 years ago. Now that it's finally happening I want it to be in higher quality materials instead of plastic.

You weren't the only one. I knew that selling previous year model phones was only a temporary fix and once something like the Qualcomm front end came along which was the key missing piece of the puzzle that such a phone would emerge.

It doesn't have to be up front.

 

Fingerprint readers started appearing on phones and PDAs back before the turn of the century.

 

They sometimes put the fingerprint sensor on the back of the device, so as to not take up precious frontal space.

Apple sells almost al its phones with carrier contracts. Some are subsidised some are not.
The problem for Apple is that phone companies now have alternative to Apple. They can dump Apple and go for an all Android/Winphone lineup.
The main reason for carriers to do that is to get control over the phone/homescreen and revenue sharing. All stuff that Apple won't give.

If I understand things right carriers get a cut from every single Android app sold in the play store. Just that revenue stream will make carriers switch from Apple.

The same day carriers stops with Apple its going to be real hard as a customer to pay 600-1000 dollar for a phone when I can get a "good enough" phone for a couple of hundred.

Ipod Mini was a huge success for Apple. They priced it aggressive. I hope that Apple sells a iPhone light for 250-299dollars/199-249Euro contract free. Apple could put real pressure on the carriers if Apple started to buy capacity on carriers and having an Apple network. iOS7 brings "free" phone calls between Apple devices.

This is all speculation.
