    " Yet Google without a doubt is one of the most successful companies on the planet today, while at the same time being regarded as the world's #1 employer to work for.
    "

    Marcap, Apple is the MOST successful company on the planet, all the data supports that fact.

    One thing I do not read is the fact that the smartphone industry is increasing its marketshare at a very, very high rate. New phones, upgrades are happening so fast that by the time RIM releases a product its going to be already outdated. RIM will also have a hard time finding any customers since everyone will have bought another high end brand already.

    In the smartphone war, you can not be late at all. You are dead if you delay because the product market runs you over.

    Sony never had 400Mil users spending $$$ in an eco system.

    If you think there is no power in the eco system then you really do not understand how all of us are happly connecting and locked into what we consider a superior system.

    Great point about the profit growth/balance sheet. The stock has a HUGE backstop that is why my models show it as the best risk/reward stock for the last 3 years.

    Im going to disagree with all FUD because its all meaningless UNTIL the numbers agree with their opinion. There is no reason to make any sort of guess either just ride it until it turns. There is a lot of time to get off the train.

  • Google Punkslaps Apple - Cook Makes Strategic Error [View article]
    All of Verizon was sold out of Iphone 5s within the 1st hour on Friday. The supply was limited due to extremely high pre-order demand all week.

    Tim Cook organized the best consumer product rollout in modern history. The number of countries, number of units is a major success story that will be taught at the highest education levels for years to come.

    Im not sure what the Author has done in his life but Im pretty sure the business world deems Cook as simply the best in the supply chain management game.

    Buffett was said the best companies in the world are the companies that execute better then everyone else. He never commented on who "dreamed the biggest dream".

    Execution = profits
    Profits = investor $$$

    Its that simple!!

    Im just wondering when Paul, Rocco and the few other negative Apple anarchists will admit that Cook is a supply chain GENIUS!!!

    Im wondering when they will realize what is actually the most important part of running a succesful company long term and extending the product life cycle beyond all others.

    Don't bring a stick to a gun fight.

    Apple sold more phones in the last week then Nokia will sell in a year. No one cares about Nokia. Enjoy your phone, you will be simply a HUGE minority.

    Microsoft made me $500K over 20+ years. I HOPE Apple is as good as Microsoft. $200K already on AAPL so I guess just one more double.

    You don't have to worry about this in the future because Apple will have 400Mil people who just love all things Apple and will continue to spend $1000 on Apple.

    There is a HUGE power of having the #1 brand, having the brand new device when others don't own it. The New York YANKEES know they are a superior brand, superior team. I know when I walk into a room with a superior product, Im a superior person ;)

  • Buyout Candidates: The Speculative Angle In Apple's Maps Blunder [View article]
    Nokia completely failed to excite luxury buyers. They are dead to us and always will be. You may like the Lumia 900 but it was a complete flop the all experts in the smartphone industry. During the summer 50 developer companies sat in a room and declared Nokia a useless revenue stream at this time.

    Its all about Andriod and iOS so far, Will that change?

    I doubt because you can not think one phone flops will the next version becomes a hit, it NEVER happens. Mindshare is all that matters and right now the large majority thinks Lumia brand is a plastic POS.

    Again, enjoy your phone but do not invest using your anecdotal opinion on the smartphone industry. You are going to lose money long term doing that.

    My company has converted 75 companies, 5000 phones over in the last 2 years. There is NOT a single app development company that wants to bother with RIMM. Its been that way since the start. RIMM was NEVER a good business choice since they had the worst Eco system, worst API and SDK.

    If you want to JUST do emails send BBMs then be our guest the the most advanced business in the world use smartphones for more evolved purposes.

    RIMM is dead....sorry.

    No one cares any more, everyone has upgraded, moved on. The #s are gone.....you will see a bunch of cry babies in Waterloo (Including 2 of my friends). I warned them and you so you only have yourselves to blame for using HOPE instead of MATH in your investment strategies.

  • Nokia Fights Back: Time To Invest [View article]
    solucky, we simply have better services...You get what you pay for as a person who has travelled the world. There just is not a comparison. You also have to understand you use a fraction of the bandwidth we use. Most of Germany had bandwidth issues, You can not even stream video over a VPN at the last supply chain management conference we presented at. Maybe its just the Wifi infrastructure but I think you pay little because you get little.

    What I find amazing is that people are fussing over $5, $25....I have 4 devices and a $300/month bill. My last care was $1700/month and my last mortgage (before paid off) was $7000K/month (still have $2500/month for taxes).

    I guess is all relative but I just can not connect with the "I looked arround but dont find contracts in the US for 1,5, 10 , 15$" comment. I think most Apple product owners don't care either. They are okay with $100 a month for great service/coverage.

    $100 is meaningless when talking about high end product usage.

    Ronin, Rocco not only lost it online blogging but his investment strategies should he lacks education and experience. I mean anyone with any sort of intelligence with run hard and far from "paid2Trade".

    Here are some quick facts...
    Rocco thinks AMZN will be $1000 before AAPL. Rocco thinks AMZN is the best company in the world and has no concerned about the razor thin margins that will mathematically force the stock lower long term.

    Rocco thinks FB will be a $100 stock in a couple of years. Again, Rocco cares little about real profit growth.

    Rocco also continues to pump Pandora.

    So his core holdings are AMZN, FB, P...I have tracked them since he talked them up and he has LOST big $$$.

    We have to protect investors and that means we have to expose individuals for what they really are!!!

    Freddysrevng,

    almost 10Mil people so far disagree. Within one Week Apple sold as many Iphone 5s as Samsung sold S3s over the last couple of months.

    Like you I was at the stores and I put them side by side.

    Holding the S3 feels horrible. Its plastic so its cheaply built. The layout, touch and movement is comical to me. its like the blindly throw things on screens and let the user learn and figure it out.

    The Iphone is superior. the numbers are behind my opinion.
