  • $APPL Will Be The Last Hardware Company 0 comments
    May 10, 2013 1:28 PM | about stocks: AAPL

    Another thought. Hardware is going to matter less and less in the future. I mean, for gamers, sure, having crazy graphics cards and what not is pretty crucial (for Bitcoin Mining too!!). But the vast majority of people use the browser on their computer and little else. Right now, Apple Inc. has the market pretty much cornered as far as cache and quality. But I think the peak for Apple Inc. 's stock price will also be the peak for hardware companies.

    All the machines are getting to the point where the advances almost don't matter. Retina display? Yeah I mean, cool. But what's more important for the individual user isn't the hardware on their desk. It's the hardware running to the street.

    Google Inc. knows this, which is why they're going after fiber and chromebooks. They understand that people don't need all the RAM necessary to run photoshop when as long as they have good Wifi, Instagram and Facebook can give them all the red eye and landscapes features they need. Forget Hardware companies guys. Again, think about how people are using these products and I think you'll see a trend in the opposite direction.
