    Yep, I thought it was a good thing continuity, but several were posting like it's a new design, and for sure I think the design is really cool ... Hey I can be a Apple fanboy and still appreciate good design, eh? Ha

    arghhh, a little reductionistic don't you think! MS paid Apple as a result of a settlement which included software support/development, Office as I recall.

    But if it's it's true it should be easy to substantiate?

    The Ativ looks like the alleged/rumored iPhone 5, basic design, but WP. Are you thinking Samsung for price?

  • Nokia Could Soar To $5 On Successful Release [View article]
    let's see one share of AAPL $600 = $600 investment
    200 shares of NOK @ $3 = $600 investment

    but the psychological influence is very real, not good investing sense, but real

    Long AAPL and NOK

  • Apple's Job Now Is To Just Not Mess Up [View article]
    right on, sad that we are such "fickle" ... or something like that ... consumers that we seem to only appreciate eye candy as truly new.

    I mean I would buy a new iPhone merely if it worked better as a phone! Software, productivity, speed ... all those things mean REAL innovation inside, well at least real improvements, e.g., GPS in my pocket that was a real game changer, when I moved from my old Nokia to the iPhone. And the buzz is that Apple's new map app is a further improvement. Many days my phone is better than my Prius GPS.

    But alas, it will be considered boring by many! Ha

    @ewmpsi, nice explanation, but the carrier part is a little overblown wouldn't you say.

    Let's say a W8 Phone gives a carrier a $300 margin, iPhone $150

    iPhone 2-year contract $70 x 24 months = $1,680 => $1830 net
    WP 2-year contract $70 ... = > $1980 net

    A 8% increase for the WP phone, but the iPhone has less churn NOW, leads the industry if I'm not mistaken, it remains to be seen if WP consumers "churn" like iPhone consumers, but that 8% disappears rather quickly.

    Hence, I see any carrier "dissatisfaction" as a mere excuse to shift blame to appease shareholders.

    Am I missing something? Clearly each of your charts reflect the same event happening in 2000, and that 2000 event capped a parabolic runup for all three stocks.

    Further with the exception of Cisco, MSFT and WMT each have had decent stock price growth since 2011.

  • Apple's (AAPL) Tim Cook and Google's (GOOG) Larry Page have reportedly been holding "behind-the-scenes conversations" about the companies' IP disputes. Discussions between lower-level execs are also said to be ongoing. One source claims a truce related to basic Android features is being considered, but it's unclear whether a broad-based settlement is on the table. Apple thus far hasn't shown many signs of backing away from its hard-line stance. (earlier[View news story]
    that's already been debunked as mere lawyer marketing gimmick from those that actually read the patent dispute
