  • The first reviews for the Tesla (TSLA) Model S start to pour in, largely on the positive side. The electric vehicle boasts impressive acceleration, a smooth ride, and a massive infotainment system chock full of delights, according to the writers. With demand for the model uncertain, and its success seen as an all-or-nothing watershed moment for the company, early buzz on the car is viewed as critical. (Reviews: Engadget, Motor Trend, Wired, CNET[View news story]
    this car will obviously be a success. tesla has plans to launch an EV in the 20-25,000 price range.

  • Why Are Sirius XM Investors So Emotional? [View article]
    i can tell you why I am emotional. Because at $1.80 per share you can own a whole lot of shares of siri if your a home-gamer like myself. That means either huge loses or big rewards. I'm still bullish on Siri for 2012

  • Tesla Motors (TSLA -4.5%) sold off after the Street failed to be impressed by the unveiling (video) of its Model X crossover, gull-wing doors and all. The Model X, a niche product even within the luxury car market until vehicle charging stations become more widespread, won't enter production until 2013, and will carry a price tag between $50K and $75K.  [View news story]

  • A rather grumpy Neil Young isn't giving up on the idea (video) that a new music player can be created that cuts into the sub-optimal way of listening to music that Apple (AAPL), Pandora (P), and Amazon (AMZN) has pushed the masses toward. He notes that MP3s and streaming music lose 95% of the data originally recorded in the studio and contends that a market exists for a higher-end device that allows listeners to hear music the way they artist intended. His answer to who will make the player: "Some rich guy." [View news story]
    99% of people are idiots. the music today in mp3 128 kbps compared to CD is like watching a movie in vhs compared to blu ray. MP3 quality and even the 256 kbps AAC files in the itunes store are God awful. It won't be niche, you don't have to charge more for better audio files. Just replace the iTunes store with CD quality WAV files or better. 99 cents for a cd quality WAV file would be a step in the right direction. But we can go higher than wav. I think if it was easily available people would download the higher quality track every time. We only squashed the quality to begin with because of smaller hard drive sizes 10 years ago.

    what I meant is that every time siri moves just by 1 cent, if you have 2,500 shares you either make 25 dollars or lose 25. it's more likely for young home gamers to not have 2,500 shares in Apple so siri swinging by 1 cent is a big deal. a bigger deal that if apple moved by 1 cent if someone only had 12 shares of apple. I agree with everything Dialectical Materialist said above. I am not one of those people who trades like that. I just meant to say that I am psychologically more invested because 1 cent is a big deal for young (23 year old) home gamers in sirius.

  • 4 Products That Can Be Added To Apple's Pipeline In 2012 And Beyond [View article]
    ... it's not about brands gaining global iconic status it's about innovation. No one cares about Levi's anymore because where do you go from "jeans"... no where. Apple is constantly branching out taking everything else's places. Before the iphone we had the Razor and Crazor for 5 years straight. No updates just the same phone and everyone thought it was cool because it was a "flip phone". Now Apple updates their products yearly and the rest of the industry struggles to keep up. You can't get away with selling the same old crap to people to milk their pockets, you need to sell them new beautiful well designed crap that will enrich their lives. Life is short and people can't wait around while a bunch of suites try to figure out how to re-sell you the same pair of jeans. Apple isn't afraid to innovate. They discontinued their best selling ipod mini to introduce a new ipod "nan" to take it's place. You can count on one hand the companies that would do that for the good of the consumer.

  • A decade of zero price gains, two burst bubbles, and a wave of successive credit crises may have set the stage for a huge bull rally, says Citi's Tobias Levkovich. A housing recovery, progress towards energy independence, and a number of other forces will align to spark the start of a bull market at some point during the next 12-18 months. Levkovich adds, “While we do not expect the markets to react to these drivers in the near term, their coalescence could generate a much more impressive rally over the next few years.”  [View news story]

  • 'What Would Apple Do' Is Not A Sound Business Strategy [View article]
    I agree that Best Buy is just a giant mess of a store that acts more like an electronic warehouse than it is a place to show and explain and demo products. And that today the choices are slightly more limited for Microsoft and Sony to go, but without Sony and Microsoft changing their products to a closed ecosystem and limiting their products to only be sold in their stores (for the most part like Apple) having brand name stores is just redundant.

    I kind of agree with you on this if not fully agree. First with Microsoft copying Apple and opening stores (but they always copied Apple) to now Sony doing it, I don't know what to make of it. It's like a double edged sword. Yes they should copy Apple because Apple is successful but the Apple store works for Apple in ways that will never work for Microsoft and Sony. The Apple store works because of the mac ecosystem and the end to end user experience. A Sony store that sells windows laptops doesn't work because sony doesn't make the operating system and the Windows store doesn't make the hardware except for their xbox systems. Plus Windows stores now just look cheap in comparison to the Apple Store. I've been in Sony stores and their focus is on Televisions, Vio laptops, PS3 and blu rays. You could always get those things at Best Buy so why would I go out of my way to buy them at a Sony specific store? Microsoft on the other hand has no business opening stores for any reason. You can buy their Xbox's in Gamestop or literally anywhere same goes for windows PC's. They have nothing to sell that would make me want to enter their stores. I am long AAPL, MSFT and SNE for different reasons.

  • Apple: Should It Be A $1,000 - Even $3,000 - Stock? [View article]
    Steve Jobs left 4-5 years worth of future products to lead apple into the future. Some of those future products Steve had his hand in are the iPhone 5, Apple Television sets, iPad 3 and more according to Walter Isaacson's biography on Jobs. As long as Johnathan Ive is still there Apple will continue to pump out "Jobs" like products.
