  • Apple Is Winning The Smartphone Upgrade Race In China [View article]
    Not true richbar. i have had posts deleted just because i called MB out by name in a post for his inaccurate and speculative attacks. He has been asked repeatedly to disclose his positions, i.e. be that short or puts, but he refuses to ever disclose.

  • Apple Is Winning The Smartphone Upgrade Race In China [View article]
    I would love to know how many people still click on MB posts any more. After a string of failed, flawed and false reports about AAPL, I stopped clicking on his posts over a year ago. But, only MB knows how much "share" he has lost with his click-bait titles, just as only AAPL knows the true sales numbers of AppleWatch, AppleMusic, ApplePay etc....

    The company hasn't changed, but it is a lot cheaper than it was when it was $133 and getting upgrades from every analyst on Wall Street.

    If you ever wanted to own or increase your AAPL holdings, now may be the best chance you're going to get for a long while.

  • New Data Bodes Well For Fitbit, But Not Apple [View article]
    The AppleWatch already is a big hit! I use mine every day and would be lost without it. Sifting through and deleting email. Following my favorite sporting event through alerts. Fitness tracking is basic but very functional. Timer I use daily. News alerts. Twitter/FB alerts. And, I have rarely ran out of battery in a day. Remember when we were told the battery would be a huge issue. That has not proven to be correct. And, it tells time too.

    Here's a question that possibly someone has data or some knowledge about. What % of AppleWatch owners don't use their device, i.e. put it in a drawer and give up on it. vs. What % of Fitbits are sitting in a drawer collecting dust? My guess is that a lot more AppleWatches are in use and a lot more Fitbits are collecting dust, like my Nike Fuel band.

  • Apple: Update On App Store Numbers [View article]
    I noticed this as well. Seems as if he confused AAPL profit from last quarter with the total year profit. It's an easy mistake to make considering how much profit they make.

    What is the impact to aapl of the China currency devaluation since they do so much manufacturing there?

  • Iwatch: You've Got To Be Kidding Me [View instapost]
    Apple has sold more watches in the first 3 months than everyone else combined. So if that's what you call failure, you are absolutely right.

    Also, now that developers have the product in hand, I expect the growth of apps to be geometric. Additionally, I would expect the way the AppleWatch functions to improve in time as well, much like every other piece of hardware made.

    I use my fitness tracking device daily, multiple times per day. I use the timer continuously. I delete email from an already cluttered inbox, right from my wrist. I have mine set up so that at a glance, i have the outside temp, but aside from that, the weather app is excellent. I have used mine for phone calls, although the looks you get from people when you're talking to your watch is a bit too much for me. And, it requires a quiet place to be able to hear unless you have bluetooth headset. I love sending voice driven text messages on mine. And, Siri is much better on the watch than on the phone in that it does not click off until you click "Done". I follow my favorite MLB baseball team via alerts to my watch which show game progress with each score. So, all in all, yes, I believe it will be more functional next year when there are native apps to the watch. And, I believe that all of the above uses that I have come to rely on, will get better with each update of the OS and apps.

    Oh yes, one more thing. It tells time!

  • Google misses out on Apple's transaction fees [View news story]
    the issue is not so much Google, per se, the issue is that they sell your information to lots of other entities who don't have as much to lose as Google does, from being cavalier with your personal information.

    and you're right, some people won't care what Google does with their personal information. those are the Android people.

    that stickly little thing they signed with Apple might govern this.....their CONTRACT. What they want vs what they actually agreed to, might be different.

    so you would choose a computer based on a financial services company being in the dark ages from a systems perspective? Fidelity is not the poster child for leading edge systems. enjoy your Samsung.

    Let's hope they don't bring OS X down to the level of Windows. Would that mean we will need to start purchasing Nortons AV?

    That Fidelity Active Trader Pro does not run on an iPad is NO surprise. Their ATP system doesn't even run on any Mac. Fidelity is NOT the gold standard when it comes to systems. I wouldn't make any technology purchase based on them, in fact, it might be smarter to choose a brokerage that does work with iOS technology.

  • Apple: Expect Another Small Dividend Raise [View article]
    Bill, as usual, you put together a thoughtful and informed article on AAPL. I don't see anyone else discussing this, but what is the chance that a stock split could also be announced, possibly in the 3:2 range? Any thoughts on this?
