  • "It is time to break up Google (GOOG)," writes Richard Sennett of the London School of Economics. "The problem is simple: the company is just too powerful, as are Apple (AAPL) and many other big tech groups." Sennett harks back to when the Supreme Court broke up Standard Oil in 1911, when "an overmighty business was shattered into 33 shards." He also cites the progressives of a century ago, such as Herbery Croly, who believed that successful start-ups would extinguish competition and become monopolies. Breaking them up "would set talent free." [View news story]
    Oh oh you opened that big can of worms... Good luck. Maybe the Fed and tax code?

    Nice comment Fear... Good points would you be a buyer going into earnings? I hope we will see some new products by fall and not just upgrades. Do you think Apple will be able to maintain the "Apple premium"?

    Just meddlesome academics spouting off. Just because most people use it doesn't make it a monopoly. There are plenty of browsers out there.
    I don't know if you use Google for searching but I find their algorithms less helpful unless shopping. They seem to prioritize the results according to who pays them the most rather then best information. You get what you pay for I guess.

  • Why is Apple (AAPL) fighting the government over the latter's accusations that the company manipulated e-book prices when the five publishers involved in the case settled? asks the WSJ's Jessica Lessin. One reason is that Apple maintains it has done nothing wrong. Another is that the ramifications will affect digital commerce in general.  A "win would help Apple maintain negotiating clout with media companies" and better compete with Amazon. However, a loss "could expose Apple to restrictive government monitoring and private lawsuits." [View news story]
    It looks like Apple is morfing from an innovative software and computer company to a law firm.

    "Google doesn't play fair" Yes they give things away for your eyeballs. Apple makes you pay through the nose.
    I think most people are just looking for access. I am talking about consumers not business so much but them too to an point. Google allows cheap access and after entering the hardware realm fast too. My Chromebook boots in seconds after that everything in the web is open to me. It suits my needs, quick access and mobility. Isn't that where the world seems to be headed?

    I am an Apple user not Apple investor. I like the products and have had many heated discussions on stocktalk about it. The investors are not quite as fanatical as the Blackberry investors especially after it's fall from grace.
    The company seems to or has the appearance of having lost the WOW factor. Cutting edge products head and shoulders above the rest. The iPhone still a great product has lost the edge with all of the competition, Sammy in particular. The iPods are still best and the recent refinements of them, I like the direction. That seem to be where the company is heading in a refinement mode rather them inovation mode. There were rumors of new product lines a TV, iWatch and hints at others. Apple was late to the cloud and still trying to catch up and integrate it in to their OS. Lion was a big step.
    Right now the software seems to be the weak spot IMO. Personally I like the Chrome browser better then Safari and in using Google I tend to use Google's other products as well. I think Chrome and Chromebooks are a bigger threat to Mr Softy and Apple then they are willing to admit. I have and use a Chromebook and like it's small form, quick use and battery life. Price is a quarter of the price of a Macbook Air.
    I think the stock price will move on the perception of WOW more then anything. If they have decent earnings and a new gotcha product the stock will move up dramatically but I just don't see it with this management. He is a refiner not an innovator.
