  • Watch As Apple Hoses The Music Industry Yet Again [View article]
    The album artist -- they are few and far between. There's something to be said for musicians who put out records that are excellent and cohesive from beginning to end. Consistently throughout their body of work.

    I agree with you. In no way am I crying for the music industry. It's a case of Apple and others taking advantage of the industry's ineptitude. The music industry should have set up its own platforms and started working years ago to extract full value out of music beyond royalties and sales.

    Marc -- is there a reason you have to be a jerk? Where's the upside other than seeking to validate yourself? My goodness. You might not agree with my opinion or how I get there, but you're defensive enough that it's out of line.

    Or I could just write something completely void of research that you agree with and it would be all good.

    Thanks for writing.

    Without disparaging anyone, like my colleague Marc, a true businessman, I'll just say there are those of us who think practically in very concrete terms and those of us who think conceptually. It actually pays to do a lot of both, but you definitely need to be able to do the latter or else your response to this type of article from me will look a lot like we see above. Which is also what we saw in 2010-2012, re: RIM.

  • Apple's Next Billion-Dollar Business [View article]
    I think the commenters point was that a lot of kids in that young demo aren't allowed to have phones yet, but parents would be cool with an iPod.

    This is a solid observation. I think the iPod Touch, via WiFi albeit, plays this role though, doesn't it?

  • With Amazon Bears Proven Wrong, The Road To $400 Remains Open [View article]
    Just a quick note for the record going forward -- when you pull out the finance textbook (as people have been doing for the last 15 years) to explain why I am wrong on AMZN, I will not engage you. That approach has been proven illogical. Just look at the chart.

  • Investors Can't Believe The Apple Hype [View article]
    Thanks for the comments everybody. Much appreciated. I am no longer with TheStreet. I resigned last week.

    Interesting that you ask about MSFT/Minecraft -- that's the next article I am working on. It's an intensely interesting subject.

    Thanks again.

    Yes. I hope you held and bought when it was a steal under $10.

    LULU will be fine. Buying opportunity. It pulls an AAPL with guidance every quarter.

    Hey man, you've got it all figured out. Why bother with a clueless soul such as myself?

    he did not avoid it. neither has Westergren.

    they can do nothing until the time comes. they will have leverage at that point (they already do now) and they will attempt to use it. they agree with the system of paying royalties. they just think it needs to be more equitable. I am not sure what else you expect from them. for now, it is what it is.
