    I don't see any reference to the tie up between Apple and IBM, and how this might impact iPad sales?

  • Do Apple's New iPhones Initiate Peak Android? [View article]
    I beleive most people don't yet realize the importance of ApplePay to the safety of their personal details. BOA are now promoting ApplePay on their internet banking page since they realize that the Fraud they experience from Credit / Debit Cards will significantly reduce as the sale of Iphone 6 increase and the popularity of Apple Pay becomes the norm. CVS will come to regret dumping ApplePay while Walgreens will clean up.

  • Zacks' Bull Of The Day: Apple [View article]
    I think what will drive ApplePay will be the Credit Card Companies when they discover that their Fraud cost have gone down tremendously. It will take a while to come through into their numbers, but when it does these CC Companies will be pushing ApplePay at every opportunity .
    I also think that most of the public don't know yet that ApplePay protects them from Fraud also.
    More Education is required by Apple.

  • If The Apple Watch Fails, Does Tim Cook Get Fired? [View article]
    What a load of Crap

  • Tim Cook (AAPL) on the five-inch smartphone: "Our competitors have made some significant trade-offs in many of these areas in order to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger display iPhone while these trade-offs exist." He adds that if IDC's right, the smartphone market declined 30% since December, so Apple's decline of 15% beat the market. [View news story]
    Your dead right about WiFi. I always buy an unlocked non contract no Data Plan iPhone, but I also would like a Larger screen iPhone and also they should make both iPads in to phones also.

  • Is the "iWatch" now official? Apple (AAPL) has filed a request to trademark the term "iWatch" in Japan, categorizing it as a handheld computer or watch device. Sony has been selling its SmartWatch for a year, while Samsung is developing a rival product also. [View news story]
    Apple Late to the Game again. They are not good at responding to competition. They should have introduced a Large iPhone at least 1 year ago, and it looks like it will be next year before the finally Get it, ie 2 years late.
    They refused to admit that there are lots of their own customers who want a Larger Screen for Browsing and reading. No wonder the shares have dumped.

  • Early chatter on the Apple (AAPL) debt offering has 3-year paper priced around 35 basis points over comparable-maturity Treasurys and 10-years priced 90-95 bps above (Microsoft priced at +70). The 3-year Treasury currently yields 0.31%. Borrowing at 0.66%, Apple can buy back shares yielding nearly 3% (with free cash flow yield far higher than that). [View news story]
    I would like to do that. AAPL likely to be a reliable Dividend payer into the distant future.

  • David Einhorn likes Apple's (AAPL) feisty share buyback : "We applaud Apple's decision to borrow money and return excess capital to shareholders, an idea that was off the table only months ago. This positive development represents a more shareholder friendly capital allocation policy and demonstrates the conviction of Apple's management and board in the Company's future." [View news story]

    Cook does not seem to realize that a lot of people would like a larger screen than the Current iPhone 5.
    Samsung have proved that to be the case.
    For God sake if they can make a iPad mini with a retina screen, what's the problem? Make the new iPad Mini into a phone Also?
    They need to provide competition for Samsung both with a larger iPhone and better / More advertising.
    Also I just meet two ladies while I was on vacation, and neither had any idea how to use WiFi on their iPhones .
    They continue to pay for data plans after their 2 year contracts had expired, when really they don't need it as they both had WiFi at home, but used 3-4G even at home. More education is necessary me thinks.
