That would be a (minimum) 18% increase from the current level
Those "not so smart analysts" are oh so stuck on your iPhone volume.
They would fail miserably if they were running your Apple!

"iPhone and iPad dying", so Apple is dying!
Just kidding at how the bad news people can be so negative on Apple,
when many of them probably don't even know how an iPad is used.
Being more serious this really surprises me, because I read so much very positive on the Surface, yet very little on the iPad Pro.

I'm looking at a Mac Pro for my new business but I can't bring myself to spend that much on a 3 year old design that could be updated at any time.
But the MacBook Air is great portable computer, running great software.
It's time I replaced my MSI netbook WinXP fiddle and became modern.

IBM was once like Apple, produced great mainframe computer hardware and great software to run on it.
Then starting in the 1970s IBM increasingly got into creating for a fee software.
Eventually IBM became 50% a software company.
A few years ago IBM finished selling off their PC business;
then started using Apple's MacBook computer hardware to develop and sell software.
So now Apple is getting into services, using their great computer hardware and software.
SpamSandwich said:Once Trump wins I suspect it will be open season on China. He wants them out of the WTO (so do I, for their many trade violations) and he has committed to changing US tax policy to favor US businesses and to staunch the flow of businesses and money to countries that have lower rates. It could cause a new panic and result in China kicking out US businesses (worst case scenario). There's really no easy answer to any of this, but the US seriously reforming the tax code (and ideally shutting down the IRS in favor of building in an automatic collection mechanism, a la the Fair Tax) would be a good start.
rogifan_new said:So basically everyone just needs to cede the electronic vehicle market to Tesla because nobody can have a better/different idea than Musks grand plan? Or implement something at scale that he can't? It's amazing how people squawk about the need for competition except when it comes to EV, there Musk is untouchable.
It's living on a rich man's toy bubble.
wood1208 said:Seriously, where is Toyota on Car-play ? No offense but now, do i have to buy one of the Hyundai car to get Carplay ?
Actually I believe several iOS functions described in Carplay are illegal to use in our CDN Province.
So when we get a new car I hope we can turn off Carplay or Otherplay and show something else which is legal on the display.

The computer technology for self driving is where Apple should be.
