  • CNNMoney's David Goldman talked with 10 Verizon (VZ, VOD) sales reps, and found all of them recommending he buy a 4G LTE Android model instead of an iPhone. Others report similar experiences. Verizon probably isn't motivated by hostility towards Apple (AAPL), but by an interest in offloading its surging mobile data traffic onto its high-capacity LTE network. It recently mentioned all of its future smartphone releases will support LTE.  [View news story]

  • Apple (AAPL -2.2%) responds to a weekend NYT column noting its low overall tax rate. The company touts its U.S. job-creation efforts and charitable donations, and says it has paid $5B in federal and state taxes over the first half of FY12. Jay Yarow isn't impressed, pointing out Apple includes UPS positions among the jobs it has created, and that its payment figures are inflated by taxes withheld from employees.  [View news story]
    Does this mean that Apple pays more tax to China than to USA ?

  • "The market can drop 400 today and Apple (AAPL +0.8%) will close up," writes The Fly, who says the action reminds him of Dell in 1998 - going up $3/day while the rest of the market cratered. Eying a chart of his GARP (growth at a reasonable price) index (of which, Apple is a member), he thinks it looks top-heavy and ready to fall.  [View news story]

  • "One of my favorite generational shorts is Apple (AAPL)," said bond guru Jeff Gundlach last night at a CFA dinner, as reported by CNBC's Jane Wells. "The rainmaker is gone, and I don't see people lining up all night for iPad 482."  [View news story]
    I didn't see single invention from Apple since few years now (Siri is not Apple invention), and don't forget that there is no "One more thing" any more so of course that the % e people exited about Apple will be decreasing every year

  • The Android juggernaut keeps on rolling: comScore estimates Google's (GOOG) OS accounted for 43.7% of U.S. smartphone users as of August, up 1.9% from July, and 3.6% from June. The iPhone's (AAPL) share rose 0.3% from July, while Research In Motion's (RIMM) BlackBerrys saw a 2% decline. (Nielsen data)  [View news story]
    so iPhone 4 was 600,000 with AT&T and now we are seeing 1 million with AT&T, Verizon & Sprint, does this mean that it is less iPhones sold than before or what ? 600,000 x 3 = 1.8 million doesn't it ?

    no way, 1 milion iPhone 4S on first day for three network operators is equal to 330 thousand for operator which is less than 600,000 in one day for AT&T and iPhone 4
