  • Why Apple Will Repeat History And Plunge Into The Abyss: Time To Call It Quits [View article]
    This article leads off with an irrelevant walk through AAPL's history, then gives us claims of non-existent facts in a verbose piece of guesswork posing as informed opinion and tainted with some poor English.
    Aside from that, AAPL continues to bank on exclusivity as well as innovation, partly based on its commitment to quality. The malware comparison by one reader was revealing in this regard. AAPL isn't after the market in any one country. It is after the loyalty of affluent (or nearly so) consumers everywhere. AAPL also continues to pick away at the corporate market where MSFT's Office suite has been available on Macs' iOS for a several years now (thanks to Jobs). Larger numbers of employees are now bringing Macs to the office and with them on the road. Lots of consumers globally can pay AAPL's prices. The cloud will continue to be another of AAPL's success stories. I don't expect rocket-assisted growth from AAPL now, but most metrics will continue to be appealing.

  • Tim Cook's Apple Mistakes Piling Up [View article]
    You might prove to be right about AAPL some day, but I'm wondering if it will happen in my lifetime. I don't expect AAPL to make the huge gains that it has in the past, but your comments here certainly do not constitute a coherent argument for selling AAPL, much less shorting it.
