Putting aside the fact that how in the hell can they tell he is a virgin or not other than taking his word for it, and if he is then why? Not surprised a Japanese guy bid $780,0000, for hundreds of years Japanese have been paying big bucks for virgins due to beliefs about prolonging their life. Reminds me of Tales from a geisha. 


     


    I agree that if somebody is first going to be a male prostitute, then they should cater to gay people, as that sounds like a more profitable business decision.

    It is also hard to make money if you roll over and fall asleep afterward!
    There was a girl and guy who auctioned off their virginity recently, which you might or might not have read about.

    The girl got $780,000, the guy got $3,000.
    I guess if you have the money there is little difference between spending $780,000 on a girl and spending $5.00 on a hamburger. Both can seem expensive if your wallet is flat.

    The moral of the story is that girls are worth more than boys (when it comes to sex for money), and if you are going to pimp anybody out, it should be a female. Males are a waste of time and not very profitable.
    Yeah the recharge time is an issue. It is sort of like an iPad with a bad battery that needs to be recharged after an hours use.
    I know that if I were a pimp, I would have a whole harem of female whores. I couldn't be bothered with male whores. Males are the "Android Phones" of the prostitution world.
    Well no, more like a RIM phone that absolutely nobody wants.

    She has an iPhone, but there's a zero percent chance that she frequents any Apple forums, so I'll assume that I'm safe. There's also the fact that she lives on a different continent.image


     


    And she also has some deranged political views (she's very liberal, bordering on socialist), and I tend to stay away from those sorts of extremists, even if they happen to be related to me.

    Your sister had to move to a different continent to get away from you? Extremism runs in the family, eh? :D

    I love how Apple with only 3 products (it can be argued that they really only have 1 product) while on limited carriers can outsell Android, which can be found on every other phone including some that are new releases and given away while on every carrier. All the while Android is being pushed in these wireless stores to consumers because there is less incentives to sell iPhone from a profit view. So in the biggest market in the world, North America, Apple is outselling Android. In the 3rd world markets where a dollar has to go a long way, Android outsells iPhone and this is what they brag about. HAHA. I don't really care for the idea but I hope the rumors are true and Apple does in fact release a affordable phone for those markets just to stick it to all the arrogant, nonsense talking, true lemmings, Android fanatics. They have become a cookie cutter cult. Speak to one Android extremist and you've spoken to them all.

    That is extremely disappointing, since iPhones did not account for 100% of all phones sold. Anything less than 100% can be considered a failure for Apple, because that's what I have decided, and I am an analyst, and I know what I'm talking about.


     


    I am going to have to cut my price target on AAPL down to $79.99, based on these frightening figures and most disturbing news.


     


    Apple doesn't really innovate anymore, especially now that Steve's gone. At CES, other companies are releasing innovative and interesting products such as a 27" tablet that you can carry around with you! Why doesn't Apple have a 27" iPad? I always wanted a 27" iPad to use when I ride the subways in the morning. That 27" tablet is going to be such a hot seller! I can see people pimping off their sisters in order to get one.


     


    And Apple recently announced that there are now over a half billion active iTunes accounts. That alone should be good for at least another 3.5% drop in AAPL.


     


    And when that China Mobile deal happens, AAPL will be revisiting the 400's again. 



    You have it all wrong.  Apple should not release a 27" iPad.  What they should do instead is combine and come out with a 27.4" iPhone that has a magic marker size stylus and call it iPhone BS (for big screen) or iPhone Nebula Chalkboard 2.  At the same time come out with a Apple clothing line with a patent on 28" sized pockets so you can carry your new iTvABLETPHONE around comfortably.  Patent the name for the new segment as well.  The only downside is your thumb won't be able to reach every corner of the screen but your arms can.  The lemmings will all buy it just because it has an Apple logo and Tim Cook can laugh all the way to the bank with yet another innovative product.  Take that Samsung.  You may have the market on every single size by an increment of .1 inch but you don't have a 27.4 iTvABLETPHONE.  See Apple can be innovative too just by coming out with a different screen size.  With that  screen size you can also include multi-multi fingers and toes gestures.  Yes you can make 15 point gestures such as 10 fingers and 5 toes on screen and swipe up to take a screen shot.

    I'd be interested to see the market growth and compare. Quarter to quarter doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of the whole market. For instance, if apple grew 20% last years q4, and this year it was 15% but if overall market growth went from 30% to 5%.... I think that means a lot more with the overall picture.

    2010 q4 to 2011 q4 we got 70% growth.
    2011 q4 to 2012 q4 I expect between 15 to 30% on revenu, but EPS may be lower.

    Unless apple come out with that low cost iphone in q2 and gets china mobile, i expect negative growth in q2 and q3. And you are right, apple is rapidly losing market shares worldwide, so its growth is less than the broader market, even if there is growth.

    Yep. Apple ][ is the Christmas tree with lights, while Techstud is the one without. 


     


    Seriously though… why are there two different types of tree right next to each other?

    C'mon you have to ask? That show was from the '70s, the set guys were probably on acid.
