    Good to see Apple suppliers chiming in and fighting back. Maybe Apple should try fighting back too. When financials are announced start calling out the nay-sayers by name and wonder publicly if investors should continue doing business with them.
    I 100% agree with this.

    Its time for Cook to take of the kitty gloves and come out swinging during conference calls and even on Twitter during the quarter.

    There is no reason for Cook not to call out analysist, especially when its based on pure lies.  Like Kuo stating the only reason iPhone7 is doing so well is because the Note7 is blowing up. Or the stupid report saying sales of the iPhone7 are down 25% around the world besides the USA.

    A CEO like Musk goes on the offensive when stupid lies like that appear about Tesla. Cook should do the same for Apple.  Its been 4 years since I began investing in this stock and Cook is still allowing these weaklings to strong arm Apple. Its pathetic.
    You love to repeat this all the time, the idea that Cook should act like some 5 year old and (LOL!) "go on Twitter" and say "Nuh uh!".

    Nobody cares what analysts think. Not Apple. And not customers.
  • KGI: iPhone 7 won't sell as well as the iPhone 6s

    I compared the camera quality between 7 and 6s  (not Plus series) and have found that 6S is far much better with selfie. I mean way much better. iPhone 7 is actually a step backward in camera quality. I found image quality to be worse on 7. Consumer Reports said that they couldn't find improvements over 6S... but I can say that from my examination of both devices that 7 is significantly worse. 

    The home button on 7 feels weird. 6s feels more natural. 

    Definitely not recommending 7 to anyone... I'd just tell them to get 6s. 

    It takes a special kind of moron to troll with the idea that 7 has a worse camera.
  • Apple seen building 75M iPhone 7 units by end of 2016, focusing on 7 Plus

    Truth be told, the 7 is pretty much on par with the 7 Plus. 

    Having a built in telephoto lens is great, and definitely a nice perk, but it shouldn't be enough to dictate which model someone gets. When you're not taking pictures you still have to carry it, hold it, use it, for everything else every single day. You ought to be getting the size you want, over any other consideration.

    That said I bought a 7 Plus too.
  • Apple's first weekend of iPhone 7 sales roughly in line with earlier iPhones, data suggests

    UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.............you need to take into account the larger user base from the iPhone7, 6s, and 6.

    There were far less active iPhones when the 6 came out 2 years ago.
    I don't understand why this happens ever year. And every year I have to point out the same thing.

    Comparing iOS 9 adoption to iOS 10 adoption...if iOS 9 installable base was roughly 1 billion, for iOS 10 it is roughly 1.25 billion. Not even remotely comparable.

    26% of 1.25 billion is more devices than 31% of 1 billion, not fewer.
  • No need for 4K display on Apple's iPhone 7 because of screen quality, expert claims

    Steve Jobs once said that Apple starts from user experience and works back to the technology that makes it happen, instead of starting from the technology and working towards user experience.

    in other words: never technology for its own sake.
    From what I can see, the exact opposite of what Shamescum does. Any way in which they can appear to outclass Apple on paper by loading their devices with specs...particularly specs that do not translate into any sort of improved user experience.

    Like their "wireless charging". So I don't have to plug in the cheap portable cables of which I have dozens lying around...instead I get to buy some unique mat with a huge footprint, and huge ugly power brick and cabling, on which I have to put my phone down to charge. Great. Lot of good that does me. At least with tethered charging, I can still pickup/use the phone if I need to while it is still charging.

    It takes a special kind of moron to be successfully wooed by such gimmicks.
