  • Some iPhone 12 users report unexpected battery drain issues

    I am pretty sure this not just an iPhone 12 issue. Have a XR and a 7 Plus user in the house and they are seeing excess drain while in idle mode. 
  • Disney CEO Bob Iger to step down

    As someone that follows Disney pretty closely, including a number of the hardcore fans discussion boards, I can summarize that the overall fan opinion of the parks has been trending negative for many months. A quick check of said boards is showing many of these fans in panic, as Chapek’s been the number one owner of the parks’ numerous issues.
    I follow along as well, Chapek is taking tons of heat on DisTwitter and small pockets of the boards.  Chapek just has zero personality and he comes across terrible.  The most powerful position in entertainment should have some charisma. 

    As for Iger, he grew Disney into Its true value. $50b to as high as $250b market cap under his leadership.

    My AirPods are dying.  Daily use for 2 years has rendered them to get 1hr of music and 30m of phone calls.  Resets, forgetting, re-pairing, etc. all no effect.  

    I need new ones and won’t buy with a new design on the horizon.  
    For those in the USA, AirPod battery replacement is $49
  • Morgan Stanley cuts Apple stock price target over weak Chinese iPhone demand

    They are still delusional to think it will be back at 236 within a year I think. 

    and I would disagree that the post above that the  markets are usually down this time of year. Quieter and flatter perhaps , but not down as much as they are. That’s due to exceptional circumstances this year and in apples case a series of bad news to go on top. 

    I got lucky and sold everything I had at 227 (main reason for selling was the sky high prices they were now charging.. smelled fishy)

    Key question is whether to get back in yet.  Gut says it’s gonna go lower (150 easily) before it slowly recovers back to 200 by mid next year. 

    But it I do agree with the analysts that apple has a problem. And cranking up the prices is not going to work in the long run of unit sales keep falling (which they will at the prices they are now charging) . All stocks are priced for future profit, hence why it’s falling. Hiding the unit sales after years of showing them also says you have something to hide. 

    ‘Cranking up prices’. Unless we see gross margin % increase your making stuff up. Been the same for almost a decade.
