  • Apple By The Numbers - No Smoke, No Hype [View article]
    IMHO, there is a direct inverse proportion between the value of an SA article and the number of "hits" and comments thereupon, and this piece is and excellent (and welcome) example of that view.

    I also believe that the maps app is a non-issue for the iPhone5 sales initially, and going forward. Hedge funds & other powerful HFTs have a field day with AAPL stock in the short term, of course, making the most of any small positive/negative spat. 'Nuff said about that.

    Thanks for a reasoned, balanced article on this company - they're rare!

  • The San Jose Verdict: Implications For Apple [View article]
    @ olsondavid: I concur with your remarks, and would add that, although not named, Google was as much a target here as Samsung. If the results here are affirmed and enforced, GOOG will be hard hit as a direct consequence.
    I, for one, will love to see it happen.

  • Apple Is Still An Astute Equity Investment [View article]
    No, just reduce it to a straight 10%, and make that PERMANENT, so it can't be tossed around as a political baton.

    Apple molehills become mountains - it's one of the problems of finding itself on top of the heap. (market share palpitations? don't even go there... = irrelevant)

  • Is Apple's Stock Manipulated? [View article]
    CEDUP, when you say "making TOYS (my emph.) is not sustainable", you reveal your total ignorance regarding AAPL and its products, and their place and impact in 21st century life.

  • In contrast with both recent market share and consumer survey data, 44% of non-tablet-owning IT professionals surveyed by IDG said their first tablet would be an Android (GOOG) device, compared with just 27% who said it would be an iPad (AAPL). IDG points out emerging markets buyers had more of a pro-Android tilt - that's likely a result of both lower price points, and the dominant share held by Android smartphones in many of those markets.  [View news story]
    @ gmmpa: Before embracing the "survey data" presented as confirming your own views in this area, did you really read what was said (and not) in the short print-bite ?? Ask:
    1) What percentage of IT Professionals are actually "non-tablet owning"?
    2) How/where were members of this unique sub-class of IT Professionals chosen to be "surveyed" ?
    3) What do you know about IDG as an independent, unbiased, agenda-less purveyor of market/financial statistics?

    I will share one of the major Truths of my life experience:
    The truth is, the truth is hard to come by!
    Statistics and surveys that create them, distort and negate more truth than they reveal. This is fundamentally because e v e r y o n e has an agenda
