    Elon never heard of sharing the costs and doing partnerships??? This is a slow and painful train wreck to watch.

  • China Mobile Is A Game Changer For Apple [View article]
    Nice to see the money rolling in, but Cook needs to crack that HUGE piggy bank and make Apple stronger in areas that are super weak!

    1. Buy Nokia Here and convert the current Apple Maps 3D into another map app like Google Earth. The current Apple map app is beyond repair. It should be called "grids" not maps. It is a running joke!

    2. Buy Twitter for two reasons. First, buying huge user base that took years to create. Second, can combine Twitter with other apps for marketing, promotion, and trend tracking.

    3. Expand streaming TV either by buying or building a better mouse trap!

    4. You are STILL missing a search engine and all the lovely revenue that comes with them. Just look at Google, they are a total train wreck, yet they make all their money on ads!
    You should buy Yahoo Search, Bing or even a smaller search company and build them out!

  • Newsonomics: Guardian's Andrew Miller Tries To Conjure Up Google's Better Angels [View article]
    I would NOT trust ANYTHING Google backs, especially a news service.

    Google has a HUGE credibility problem. It's called boldface lying!

    For example, just last week they strong arm threatened SEO people and website owners with lower rankings if they did not convert to mobile friendly pages. Turns out another fabricated lie to make people change things to benefit Google. There is next to nothing in mobile search ranking changes. ZERO! Just more "crying wolf" from Google, when it benefits only Google. This thing is getting REAL old and people have caught on now to the B$ games Google plays. You are a TOTAL ignorant if you trust ANYTHING they do now.

    They need a whole NEW ETHICAL management team airdropped in and not the current corrupt Katzenjammer Kids. Maybe that is why so many top Google people have gone! When real innovation is dried up, all that is left is lying.

  • The Ongoing Case For Apple's 'Moderate' Dividend Growth [View article]
    Are they ever going to use this money to fix things or buy growing complimentary companies???

    The Apple maps apps still are beyond worthless, great for making screen grids and nothing else.

    And now their photo apps are going backwards with the loss of Aperture.

    Still no social media apps unless you count the boring Messages app.

    How about buying... Nokia Here, Adobe, Verizon FIOS, ESRI, Rachio, DJI, Virgin Media, Qihoo, Blinkbox, Flicker, Yahoo Search, or Twitter?

    #Apple @Apple $APPL

  • Apple Earnings Preview: It's All About iPhone Sales Momentum [View article]
    And how about just fixing the bugs and making better software in the updates. The new Photos, like iTunes is two steps backwards. They gutted a lot of features to make it simple to maintain. Sounds like they are getting lazy??? I already know they are greedy!

    And why give up market share by killing Aperture? Adobe Lightroom just picked up million$ of users on that stupid move!

    There are so many things that nowsuck and they won't fix them or listen to customers. Here is the hit parade:

    1. Maps app. It should be called Grids now, because that is all I get. The render engine is way to slow. They need to dump the 3D mode. They also should just toss it and buy Nokia's HERE which is fast. They are SO far behind on maps now that people think it will never get fixed. It is the one app I wish I could remove, since it does not work well.

    2. Spotlight is the worst search tool EVER!!!! Does NOT give paths, the window WON'T resize, and it won't search hidden files or search on dates, sizes;etc. I had to buy a real Search app since Spotlight is such a hot mess!

    3. The Mail tool. There STILL is NO good junk mail filtering in the Mail app. I could spend hours on this issue. Almost as long as I setup junk mail filters! The mobile mail app is still worthless. Needs folders and filters.

    4. iCloud. There are still too many controls for this, and still insecure, so I don't use it. They need to make the controls easier to use.

    5. iTunes app. Everything is hidden in iTunes! Your devices, your apps, and the app store should ALWAYS be displayed clearly on the upper menu. I and others are tired of playing "hunt and peck" in hidden three dots sub-menus. iTunes menu interface needs a total overhaul.

    6. The OS software is to dam slow. That was Steve Jobs number one push was for fast start-ups on the first Macs. Apple has blown that issue off and has gone the lazy OS bloatware route. Takes forever to sync and start-up IOS and OS X now. They should listen to Jobs!

  • Apple: Q2 iPhone Sales Of 55 To 65 Million Foreseen, Then Will Fall Behind Samsung Again [View article]
    But people stay with the ecosystem they like best so the phone is only half the battle. Plus, new phones come out yearly so Samsung is ahead now, but wait till Sept. and Apple will be ahead again.

    Nice try!

  • Is General Motors' Stock Price Going To Hit A Hairpin Turn? [View article]
    "ongoing reality for big auto"

    The on going reality of big auto is they are trying to rip us off. Ever since the crash of 2008 the price of cars has been going up 10 to 15% each year. Because of this they are now not selling hardly any cars. They do a great job lying to the public and the shareholders, but they are not selling cars like they use to. People are buying used ones which are now also way over priced.
    The cars are so overpriced that the profit margin on a new car is monstrous. So monstrous that they can store the unsold ones FOREVER. Instead of selling these stored 2-3 year old cars at fair market value,they let them rot. They are just to dam greedy! The proof is on Google Earth...

  • How Volkswagen Thinks It Will Undercut Tesla On Battery Cost [View article]

    He is very reliable dealing with the huge government gravy-train contracts for rockets, but dealing with the public he is very unreliable in nailing down delivery dates and the Gigafactory completion data.
    He has still got his fingers on the chicken switch with the Tesla models. He is not guaranteeing any dates due to unstable sales and growing competition. The escape door is still wide open!

    Define flop?
    The margins are even bigger than the iPhones. Even single digit million sales would be HUGE profits compared to other watch companies sale numbers.

    If they are going to be in streaming, than they need infrastructure.

    I sure hope they buy FIOS from Verizon. Verizon has stated they are done building out FIOS, are cutting back service, tech support and have started closing ALL FIOS stores. Just ask California and Texas customers how this is going for them.
    FIOS will be a anchor to Verizon if it does not keep growing it's customer base. Apple can afford to keep building out the fiber optic network.
