  • Watch As Apple Hoses The Music Industry Yet Again [View article]
    Nevermind is not worth paying 15 cents for and not worth listening to for free. It is free, on youtube, but not worth the waste of time to listen to for more than a few seconds.

    You asked ... is is worth $15 and that's one person's answer.

  • Apple iPad Air 2 The Most Financially Meaningful Launch In Years [View article]
    One member of our household is completely dropping usage of an annoying Google-infected Android phone and is switching to the new iPad mini with cellular. I'm upgrading to the newest iPad but haven't decided whether to trade in the 1-year old iPad or to hand-it-down to one of the children who doesn't yet have an iPad of her or his own...

  • Forget About Bending iPhones: There Are Better Reasons To Sell Apple Stock [View article]
    He sold some of his AAPL holdings and afterwards felt like he might have done the wrong thing and so he wrote an article about it, to help himself feel better and to emotionally hedge a possibly wrong decision .... is my impression.

  • How High Can Icahn Drive Apple Shares? [View article]
    Strange thing to write, Humble Eagles: "... it will never get back anywhere close to the all time highs."

    AAPL's all time high is a little over $700 pre-split. It closed today at $101.02, which is a pre-split price of $707.14.

    Near enough to be "anywhere close?"

    Or aren't you aware that AAPL split 7:1?

  • If The Apple Watch Fails, Does Tim Cook Get Fired? [View article]
    Wait and see is a good approach to the Apple Watch.

    It's a just a WATCH..., and many people, like myself, stopped wearing watches a long time ago. But people are curious and Apple fans (anyone who has one or more Apple devices and is happy with them) AND who own iPhones ( the models which will work with the watch) will be especially curious and will buy millions of them ... to satisfy their curiosity.

    Until I had my first iPhone, I never would have guessed that it would become something I "couldn't live without."

    So the question is, will the Apple Watch become something that iPhone users, once they try one, "can't live without?"

    You're a bit behind - the "shock virus" is called shellshock and it is not a virus. It was a bug and it has been fixed already. Check Mac Observer.

    As for the "iWorm," if that is what you are referring to, that is something that only comes with illegal/pirated software. Illegal/pirated software has always been a "you get far worse than what you pay for" idea and has a long history of infecting any and all operating systems including even the most secure Linux distributions.

  • Apple Will Do A Television Set [View article]
    This article is about the possibility and hope for an Apple television, not about "bendgate" or the backward-hat wearing guy who made a lot of money from the millions of hits he got on his u-tubular video.

    Regarding an Apple television, I'm still using an old CRT television with a digital-to-analog convertor, while I continue to patiently wait for Apple to introduce its own take on what a television should be like.

  • Invest In The Millennials, Invest In Apple [View article]
    My youngest daughter, now a high school teacher, is still using the iBook I bought for her when she started college 9 years ago. Her motto is, if it works, why replace it?

    My recent PhD, now professor daughter had a Mac all through college and grad school. It was a mix of Macs and PC's among her fellow students in college, but in grad school, EVERYONE, including the professors, used Macs.

    If the people who are selling out of CMG use that money to buy AAPL, AAPL will go to $1,000 ($7,000 pre split).

  • Amazon: An American Horror Story - A Fictional Account Of What Does Not Exist [View article]
    The Fire phone was not a failure, it was a flop. Read what famous people like Thomas Edison and Babe Ruth said about unsuccessful attempts and strikeouts, respectively.

    Amazon is simply willing to have flops a lot more frequently than Apple is.

    Apple calculates, stalks and lays in wait for the opportunity to make a product better than the others of the same genre which have flopped. Amazon approaches it more like Babe Ruth or Thomas Edison, expecting dozens if not hundreds of strike-outs and flops in between each home run.

    Amazon's Kindle was a home run and they've made a huge bundle from it.

    The iPad has exceeded the Kindle, because from personal experience I have witnessed my wife transform from a Kindle fanatic to a person who carries her iPad with her all the time. Her iPad has the Kindle app. Her Kindle is somewhere in the house, gathering dust and probably in desperate need of a battery re-charge.
