  • Tim Cook's Improbable Victory In Washington [View article]
    If our Gov't takes in more taxes and use it exclusively to pay down debt, fine, I can live with that. But all it does is to spend every penny it gets plus more debt, it simply cannot stop.

    Let Apple keep the money, I may not be an Apple fan, but I trust it more than I trust Washington DC.

  • Apple: Quit Whining About Tim Cook [View article]
    Was Jobs arrogant? is Larry Ellison arrogant? you name the big shots who change the commerce and industry, all arrogant as**oles, that is the way it got to be. Of course I am not joking, where were you in the last 100 years? There is no place for nice guys at the top, nice guys work for arrogant bosses. I want to make money with Apple stocks, I don't want nice guys which are a dime a dozen.

    Wait a year or 2. Cook will not last, they are looking for someone.

  • Apple: Quit Whining About Tim Cook [View article]
    I read Cook's interview with Business Week months ago, I don't remember anything he said, nothing significant, except I only remember one thing, he REPEATLY said how great his team is, again and again. So, he is a nice guy, a nice manager. He spent more time try to impress his staff then anyone else, he is not arrogant which means he is not confident. He is like my general manager, he does everything he should do very well, I can leave for weeks without worrying about anything, but I know he is not a top leader, he cannot lead a business, he does not step out of bound, he does not innovate. Cook is a manager, a vital person to handle things for the boss. Cook is not a boss, he doesn't have the brain nor character to innovate..

  • Apple's Story: Only The Beginning? [View article]
    I always have solid confidence in Apple, more specifically in Steve Jobs, I bougth Apple stock in 1987. I am not sure about Cook, everyday good manager, never going to be a legend. But all ok. Until 2 days ago when I saw a picture of a cheap Chinese phone that looks almost exactly like an iPhone, this is not a no name cheap copy, but a famous Chinese branded phone with nationwide distribution, at 1/4 the iPhone price, made by the same supplier to Apple. My gut feeling is Apple's China market will be mostly gone.

    Samsung copied most but they don't look exact same as iPhone, this new one is identical. On my business trip to China, people everywhere have iPhone, it is a status symbol, for usage, no need to pay triple price for Apple.

  • Could Apple Be Working On The 'iBank'? [View article]
    Thanks for article and enjoyed reading it, well done. I normally do not read Apple news, maybe it is old hat to others, but I found it very refreshing. I know they are super busy working on some new hardware(s).

    Am I going to buy more APPL because of this? of course not. You read about new apple rumors all the time, it was iWatch last week with some ugly watch picture. But this does remind me that APPL will have something shocking coming, I have no idea what it maybe, but it is a given that there will be new products, seems there is no shortage of "shocking" new ideas, so let's assume they will be shocking.

    I have a friend who works for Apple in new products, but forget about trying to get a word out of him, I don't even joke about it with him, he has been super busy, as always, whole team flying to China for extended period of time, so they are busy working on something. But Apple has a habbit of canceling new products suddenly after spending huge sum and time on them. I tend to think all these rumors are just wild guesses and far off the target, they are extremely and totally tight.

    Plausible, logical, doable and clever. That is what have been missing for a few years, some big wacko idea that is just, as they say, paradigm shifting.
