  • Apple lowers holiday quarter guidance on lower than expected iPhone sales

    So are all the people who shit on anybody here who speculated iPhone sales might be soft going to apologize now? It was patently obvious once Apple started heavily pushing the trade-in program and displaying cheaper prices on apple.com homepage that there was an issue with sales.

    Not for a minute.

    Should someone who's wrong 24 quarters in a row (all the analysts and the idiots who believe them) that now finds their prediction come true one single time suddenly be praised for their insight? Or did they just get lucky after repeating the same tripe over and over to the point where one day they were finally correct?

    We all know it's the latter.
    Of course, you could have simply accepted a differing opinion and countered with your own reasoned input instead of jumping on posters and labelling them as trolls, shills, idiots and what not. There is no 'getting lucky' here. Price ceilings exist. You have one. I have one. Most of us do. If prices increase in a saturated market and Apple hasn't pushed the envelope on a tech level, something is likely to give. With iPhone, it just gave.

    We're focusing on iPhone mainly here and rightly so.



    If you don't call being right one time only a lucky guess, then what do you call it?

    And what do you call being wrong 24+ times? Bad luck? Oh wait, you said luck isn't involved. So being wrong for years and years is what, incompetence?
    You’re such a troll! Go stand in the corner and think about your actions. 

    Ahhhh, did I upset you with facts?
    Not at all. There’s always people like you that root for the team they love no matter what. Apple could kill thousands of people and you’d still defend them no matter what. Just tired of you trying to bully people hear that have a different opinion than you do. You are an ass and I’m calling you out on that.

    What's that "splat" sound you hear?

    It's millions of haters/losers/idiots all over the world having a collective orgasm at hearing this news. Seems they can only be happy when there's bad news about Apple.
    This is Tim Cook saying we fucked up. Which happens from time to time. Even for Apple. Apple will be just fine for the long foreseeable future, but you can bet that there will be more bad news from Apple over the next few years. 

    Stop defending Apple no matter what. Call them out when they screw up and celebrate their victories when they have them.

    And todays USA Today stuffed into our local paper says the iPhone is too expensive. I think most see through this malarky. Current generation phones are a 4-5 year investment. At that rate they are still pretty affordable.
    In my opinion the current iPhone X phones are too expensive. The only reason I decided to replace my iPhone 5s was because Fry's was offering $200 off an iPhone Xr 128GB, which brought the price to $600, which is pretty much my ceiling. My 5s was getting pretty long in the tooth, and relatively slow, but I wasn't about to pay $800-1,000 for a new smart phone. For me it really wasn't about being able to afford it, but more about not wanting to feel like a sucker.
    You're reading too much anti-Apple BS.

    The current models are no more expensive than last years. 
    Are you on drugs?

    Genuinely hoping Apple have sold a ton less iPhones so they get the message that they are ridiculously priced these days. 

    Especially when you only get 64Gb for your $1000

    Maybe if you pray hard enough Apple will fail. I wouldn’t bet on it, though. 
    This didn’t age well.
