    Brought to you by one of our 15 year old members.

    He's directing that at our most nettlesome Samsung mole. Totally justified, even if jdnc 123 really is an Apple stockholder. Apple needs to shake off such parasites, assuming he's for real.

    I don't think Apple got where it is now by selling POS devices.

    That's the problem. I think Wall Street wants Apple to sell point of sale devices. ;)

    As long as it isn't a POS POST device!

    New Headline


     


    "Apple once again don't actually care about Wall Street"


     


    'Its not like any of those guys who call themselves ANALysts are running Billion Dollar profit companies' Tim Cook allegedly said.

    "WSJ" "Analyst" "Pundit" "Insider"... All terms that mean nothing to me other than lies, conjecture and hearsay.

    True.  Apple is one of the most successful companies in the world - certainly one of the most successful companies (ever?) in the USA.


     


    So the question is:  Why does Wall Street treat them like they are some upstart, no-hope, cottage industry?  You'd think that American financiers would describe Apple in positive terms - shout US innovation, competence, domination, as loudly as possible - but the reverse seems to be the case.


     


    It's a mystery to me.  I ran out of reasons for this disconnect between Apple's performance and its reporting in the finance sector after considering: crude stock-manipulation, sad column-inch journalism, malicious/enjoyable fun-tweaking of AAPL fan-sites, treason (aiding and abetting the enemy . . .)

    Simple, they don't think Apple can stay 'King of the Hill'. The competition is gaining and while they might not be able to dethrone Apple they can chip away at their earnings.

    This chart leads me to believe Apple's not just working on incremental updates. Otherwise you would have to assume they really are out of ideas, or are so lost they can't even get out incremental updates. Obviously that's what Wall Street believes.

    The killer service/feature would be Push-To-Talk, ala Sprint/Nextel style Direct Connect with a dedicated, yet programmable PTT button!

    Whatever happened to the incremental updates of iOS? New features used to be added several times a year.

    Via iMessage? Apple only, therefore? Is it possible?

    And your implication is that we won't know anything about anything until "fall"? 






    Stop posting stupid shit.



     


    Please do.

    He could be in South America where it is the fall.

    Disappointed?? WHO CARES!
    "Oh my goodness, we can't take advantage of any new Apple publicity to buy and sell stocks! Boo hoo!!" say the stock trading whiners.

    Wall Street destroyed the economy. Tough crap for their "disappointment". Half of them should be in prison right now. I hope Apple buys all its stock back and goes private some day. Public ownership sucks for everyone involved except the "preferred shareholders." Public ownership has nothing to do with "investing" in the economy, and everything to do with abusing it. Self-fulfilling prophecies and manipulation of businesses for the narrow interest of people that have zero care, comprehension or responsibility for the products or customers of the businesses they play their speculation and valueless opinion games with.

    They are busy with a major update?

    They don't have unlimited resources.

    Not enough good engineers, not enough room till they get the new HQ.

    That sort of thing.

    Good point. Maybe we should remind him that Apple is an United States based company so maybe he should go by our seasons. >>LOL

    Let's face it. The next Apple product will probably disrupt the iPhone, iPad and Macs alltogether.
