  • Apple's record $81.4 billion Q3 obliterates Street expectations

    As always, Wall Street doesn’t care about what you did today, it’s about what it thinks you will do in the future. And the Covid-19 delta variant has thrown a monkey wrench into the financial crystal ball, all because 50% of the population are dumb, ignorant morons. There’s also a study out that reveals 1-in-5 believe the vaccines contain microchips. That means 20% of the population are certified idiots.
    Well, that 50% clearly just needs to be educated. Such as providing links to actual studies on the long term effects of an mRNA vaccine on people. I think if you were to post some of those it would be very illuminating. 

    And you’re spot on, just like previous quarters when Apple crushed earnings, it’s only what Wall St. thinks will happen going forward that matters. 
    Well, if you go to the VAERS website* right now and compare vaccine deaths, most vaccine deaths range from a handful, to a dozen, to a couple hundred at most. Covid comes in over 6,000. Of course, not all of these are verified, but evidence suggests that most of the VAERS inputs are from medical providers. Keep in mind, vaccine programs have been halted before for as little as 25 deaths. We have >6,000 reported deaths now. And yet people see fit to continue this, even giving it to children, who have virtually no risk from covid. Incredibly cowardly, especially when you consider that over %90 of elderly (in the US at least) have already been vaccinated.

    Why do you seem so angry? You know it doesn't make sense to blame the stock drop right after earnings on covid-19, right? It's almost like you used that as a convenient jumping off point to make some angry statements. Since you're really smart and good at judging people, I'm sure you know that the mRNA vaccine only confers partial immune response (spike proteins), thus giving the virus opportunities to evade this narrow barrier in order to create variants. Whereas people who get the virus naturally have a much much lower reinfection rate due to the broader immune response, and thus give the virus less opportunity to create variants. So, in reality, if you got vaccinated, you're part of the variant problem. The more you know.

    Anyway, I gave up on trying to make sense of AAPL fluctuations a long time ago; there's too much manipulation to be able to predict much.

  • 'iPad mini 6' could sport 8.3-inch display but retain the same footprint

    I'm really tempted to get the iPhone mini this year and use the new iPad mini as my main device. Has anyone tried this before?

  • HBO officially kills Apple TV Channels integration

    I am not am HBO subscriber and don't plan on it.  So humor me. Is there really anything compelling enough to stay on HBO if they want to make you run their app vs the customer friendly Apple TV integration?

    Since HBO is basically giving the finger to customers who want the integrated experience instead of each separate app (I assume this breaks the Siri search integration in the Apple TV all in one solution), should customers give the finger back and just drop them?
    This is all on Apple, for their crappy Apple TV app implementation that makes watching series shows a pain (doesn't keep track of where you left off right, doesn't automatically restart the next video right, etc). I don't understand why Apple can't get something so relatively simple right. I doubt it'd break siri search.

    FWIW, I'm really like HBO. It's worth subscribing just for the show Raised by Wolves (amazing sci fi), and of course game of thrones, westworld, true detective, good movie selection, etc.
    Couldn't disagree more about the Apple TV implementation. It's much better than HBO's native app, which I rarely open.  Also...Raised By Wolves?  Really?  That show blows, which is why it got cancelled.
    To be clear, I wasn't really comparing UIs; I much prefer Apple TVs UI to HBO, but it seems like the integration of watching HBO shows via Apple TV isn't great.

    Also.. raised by wolves blows?? I'm pretty sure it's not even legal to say that publicly. And it's not cancelled, buddy. They've already started shooting season 2.

    (Edited)
    2nd edit: On review, I see where I poorly communicated here; I can see why so many people thought I was talking about the implementation of Apple TV app as a whole, when my intention was to comment only on the implementation of merging content from other streaming apps. Lesson learned!

    This is on Apple? HBO cancels it and it’s on Apple? JHFC what rock do these low IQ mopes come out from under? But great plug for the expensive HBO max — because If one with your non-think is endorsing it? I’d suspect stay away from HBO Max as a general rule. 

    Channels is decent. I use a third party integrated menu but that’s not for the average user. 
    And likely what this is about is HBO looking for greater control of user and probably user data. This is a game to make money. HBO is just doing what they think will help that. No shame in that. 
    AI forums never fail to be entertaining lol. But to your point, this being 'on Apple' probably wasn't fair.
