  • WSJ: Apple talking Web TV service for fall launch [View news story]
    Right on Phil!

    My ISP is Comcast.net 13ms pin, 60Mbps up, 7Mbps down, I'm not sure who I'd go to, but these talks are a nice development for end users and for AAPL investors.

    Yup, Michael, the 25 channels is just the start add say 2-3 rentals from iTunes = $9-12, add Netflix for reruns ($0), and the must have this season episodes from iTunes = ...

    @ mikie, beg to differ there buddy, "One which one may save a few dollars a month after purchasing their hardware. I'll skip it. There's nothing new here."

    There's no hardware rental or whatever Comcast calls it. One purchase - a little black box called Apple TV, that's it = $100

    I just wrote a check to my "basic" cable service at $115/month! Let's see $115 or $35, even adding Netflix this is a no-brainer for the right 25 channel combo.

  • WSJ: Apple car project is for real, and it's a minivan [View news story]
    I'm quite sure the alleged "Titan" minivan is merely a test vehicle for the technology. This is quite common in silicon valley, for the last year or so actually there has been vans and SUVs with the same white attachement to the full roof simulating something. At first I assumed it was Tesla simulating autonomous drive technology, but there's no reason why it couldn't be Apple.

    Similarly there are vans rolling around all the time with laptops, several monitors and racks of what I can only assume are computers and "radar" on the roof with 4-5 technicians inside doing only God knows what.

    My point is it is quite common to see on any given day "Titan" vehicles with all sorts of cameras and odd testing equipment on the roofs in Santa Clara ... er ... Silicon Valley.

    BTW, I am a hyper commuter with a 112 mile daily commute on and off the freeways, so I've pretty much seen it all in the valley.

  • Will Audi's Hybrid Q7 Cause Tesla's Model X Backlog To Evaporate? [View article]
    User you missed Marshgre's point, the title says "Electric", if one searches for an "Electric" Q7 you find zip. Electric and Hybrid are two different types of cars, not the same.

    It seems like you did not answer the heart of iobeta's comment - stock selection?!

    There are a number of easy combos that were talked about a year ago in SA that soundly beat your CD vs portfolio.

  • Can Apple Sustain Advancements In Future iPhone Generations? [View article]
    I believe that "new" is not the author's point, rather "superior", superior experience and user experience. Here's a recap of what Alex lists as "room to improve":

    batteries
    3D
    5K displays
    materials that comprise and protect
    sapphire display
    graphics
    processing
    modem
    memory technologies
