  • Why Tesla Motors Can Continue Beating Luxury Rivals In Europe [View article]
    "A lot live in apartments with (underground) garages or parking spots" -

    Really, are you serious? Have you ever visited a European city? On a Sunday night when people get back to the appartments for the weekend, it can take 20 mins to find a spot within walking distance of where you live, much less chance of finding one outside your house.

    Introduce a little rationale to your investing decisions and check in your emotions at the door.

    400m with garages? When was the last time you visited Europe? Very few people live in detached villas with garage parking. Most live in appartments and semi-detached accommodation.

    You do realise that the 25 year average for oil prices is $48/bbl?

    The price hike in the last 3 days has been driven by short covering at Q3 end.

    "Apple Watch: Expect Much Better Sales In The September Quarter"

    Much better than what? Tim Cook, with all his emailing Jime Cramer, never had the time to break out the iWatch sales for the June quarter.

    Elon Musk is not only an anagram of Me Sunk Low but also a latter day John DeLorean - smart money says that the Feds bust him for narc trafficking :-)

  • Apple: Uniquely Well Positioned For The Future Of TV [View article]
    Wow, you guys live in the dark ages when it comes to TV. In Europe the model has moved to the SmartTV platform where you have a menu of options pre-loaded onto your new TV (Netflix, Free to View Channels, HBO, etc) and you subscribe to the ones that suits you. Moreover, once you have subscribed you can choose which platform and OS you want to see them on. Why bother being tied down to AppleTV, I can't see the advantage?

  • Why A Proposed Algorithm Change Could Bring Down Google [View article]
    What planet do you come from - Bizzaro?

    You really think iOS users are going to use Bing or Yahoo? Apple can sign whatever deal they like but iOS users will drift back to Google the same way they went back to YouTube when Apple decided to remove the YouTube App from the AppStore.

    Wow. Google wants to implement a change that would knowingly destroy shareholder value. Sorry, nul points, can't see that happening.

  • Shared Autonomous Vehicles: A $450 Billion Opportunity For Google [View article]
    Wow, expect some flack from the Naysayers who still believe in men walking with red flags in front of non-horse drawn vehicles.

    On paper, it makes so much sense not only in terms of vehicle utilization rates but freeing up parking space in urban environments.

    There will be head winds, not least from the auto-makers whose business model relies on selling vehicles to people who use them for less than 10% of the day (can you imagine an airline executive parking a jumbo jet on the tarmac for 22 hours a day!!!).

    Assuming that Google can overcome the fears of the above said, the real challenge comes when they put driverless cars into formation for driving on the interstate in caravans.

  • Why Xiaomi Is Not A Threat To Apple [View article]
    You're missing a key point that actually backs up your case. Xiami would have a problem selling its devices in any major Western Economy on the grounds of patent laws. It rips off every major manufacturer and has only be launched in PRC, HK, Singapore and India.

    That said I'd buy one in an instant if they could legally sell one and take off its Xiami skin.

  • Apple: Setback In Education Presents A Cloud Opportunity [View article]
    Dude, hold your tongue cos you look like an idiot.

    Apple, in particular Tim Cook & Luca Maestri use IDC numbers when it suits them.

    Don't believe me? Look at the transcript of the latest July 2014 earnings call from Apple.

    http://bit.ly/1qvRWY9

    Of note, Maestri refers to IDC's numbers (presumably as a credible source) in the very educational market that is the subject of this discussion.
