  • Apple roundup: Motorola ITC suit revived, new iPhone image leaks [View news story]
    Same here.

    I've personally seen 3 coworkers get work phones, which happen to be their only cell phones, at a Verizon store. All of these people never owned a smartphone before, so they would be considered perfect examples for this CIRP Survey. So what happens? Two of the 3 people purchase a Windows Nokia phones because that's what the salesman recommends and they could care less. Those two got a free upgrade so why would they care. The 3rd person called their son to ask what they should get and the son recommended the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 was $199 and our company covered half of that cost. So this person shelled out the other $100 out of their own pocket for an iPhone because they cared about their "new" smartphone experience. And that falls in line exactly with the 1/3 CIRP survey results. It's at a much smaller scale, but it's also interesting to see the similarities.

    Yay, let's do an evaluation on Apple at their lowest point in the product cycle. Silly...

    Let's get real here people, Apple will be introducing many upgraded products and most lilely even a few new product categories. Apple doesn't rush their product lines just to satifsy numbers on a quarter by quarter basis. They are in it for the long haul.

    Your math is way off, omni.

    The iPhone 5C will cost Apple about $150 to make, and they'll sell it for roughly $300 and net nearly 50% gross margins.

    I can't believe people believe Apple is losing money.

    People obviously have no idea what they're doing in the market.

    My short recommendation was a joke. Thought that was made pretty clear.

    So not only do we have an Author that concludes shorting as a result of 3 insider sales, but we have a reader that concludes that those 3 sales were based off of their sellers worrying about the new look of iOS7.

    LOL!!! I suggest you both short AAPL and buy BBRY.

    But in all seriousness, you should both sit down and read Nassim Taleb's The Black Swan. You might learn a thing or two about correlation.

    @UncleSherbert. All I have to say to you is LOL - I'd recommend you sell your RIM, cough cough BBRY shares before they're worthless.

    "The plastic iPhone is like the proverbial unicorn"

    Is it really, Kimbo? What would you call the 1st gen, 3G & 3GS iPhones?

    This isn't Apple's first plastic iPhone rodeo.

    I welcome you to take a look at my recent seeking alpha article, where I list multiple value additions for Apple by bringing the plastic iPhone 5C to market - http://bit.ly/14upYBp

    Splitting AAPL stock is a very bad idea!

    All splitting does is create more volatility from day traders jumping in and out of it. As a long term AAPL shareholder, I want other shareholders with similar long term interests.

    Reducing the share price via a stock split only attracts turnover from worthless transients.

    I have yet to see one BB10 in person, but I guess my numbers could be off because I haven't been to Canada since February.
