  • Why iPhone 6 Won't Reverse Apple's Market Share Decline [View article]
    Samsung has a chance to compete with Apple in the high-end hiring/stealing the top designers, engineers and managers currently working at Apple.
    But good luck with that.

  • Apple's Value Creation Going Forward [View article]
    I don't care what Jobs said. It is not up to him to block Flash. The consumer is always right.
    As I said, I was trying to buy theatre tickets online and Safari could not read the webpage because it used flash. Had to download "Photon" to do so.

    No wonder Apple is losing market share.

    I really like my iPad, but the refusal of supporting flash pisses me off. I actually had to buy a special browser that does support flash via a loophole.

  • Insiders Are Selling Apple [View article]
    If anything, these insiders are pretty dumb as most shares were sold (in June, July) just when AAPL bottomed at $380. Now it is at $520.

  • The Unsung Apple Advantage [View article]
    The most glaring advantage would be in floating-point sensitive operations like video-gaming. For the same specs, it could be that gaming on an iPad (with iOS) is faster, of higher quality, and can last longer (under-clocking saves battery time) than gaming on an Android (Java) tablet.

  • Oh Apple, About That 'Win' You Thought You Got... [View article]
    I have another example of you:

    Majority shareholder Groupo Mexico had to pay $2B to Southern Copper (SCCO) in a court judgement. Subsequently, Groupo Mexico forced the board of SCCO to declare a one-time special dividend to the tune of $2.75/share. The result was that Groupo Mexco got their $2B back in dividends ;)

  • Apple: Back To Basics And Quite Compelling [View article]
    Are you not worried that too many people (and investors) are in love with Apple?

    Considering the huge perpetual lines in front of Apple stores when a new product is announced and the constant stream of higher and higher stock target prices mentioned on CNBC and other financial news outlets, it seems to be the stock has all the hallmarks of being in a mania.

  • Silly Patents: The Effect Of Apple's Rejected Patent Claims On The Samsung Lawsuit [View article]
    The trick is to bombard the USPO with applications, even nonsensical ones. By default, some of these will stick and be granted as the patent officer is just one other lazy bureaucrat who wants to finish the job early and go home.

    Not at all. In fact, I would argue the price of the original will surge higher in value the more low-quality knock-offs are produced.

  • Apple's Verdict Will Likely Survive Appeal [View article]
    On the one hand, we have an US jury that says the Galaxy SII infringes an Apple patent, but on the other hand European and Asian courts say the Galaxy SII International Edition does not infringe Apple patents. Note that both SII versions are exactly the same.
    So, what's gonna be?

  • Apple Adds $12.5 Billion To Cash, Now $116 Per Share [View article]
    Yes. The EU could create an Apple windfall profit tax to plug the deficits of the PIIGS. Lol

  • Apple: Why Did You Doubt Them? [View article]
    Since Apple did so well in China, does that mean that all the talk about a Chinese hard landing is nonsense?

  • Is The Apple Bubble Popping? [View article]
    What is also interesting to note is that during the early dividend days of AAPL, its stock price when nowhere. Only when Steve Jobs arrived and stopped the dividend, the stock price went up.

    Now, we have entered another dividend period.

  • Apple's Other PR Problem [View article]
    Jobs will continue to leave America for China due to the simple fact that the US cannot compete with Chinese SLAVE LABOR.
