  • Apple Pay Hoopla Shows We Have Hit Peak Apple [View article]
    It sounds like the author has been drinking the same stuff which Michael Blair imbibes, so I will avoid wasting time and clicking on any of his articles in the future when I see his name as an author, on the assumption that it would be more drivel like what this article is.

  • AT&T Q3 2014 Review: Competitive Pressure Heating Up [View article]
    T is a dividend stock and a great one.

    For a diversified dividend investor, there is no good reason to sell T and it only becomes more attractive to buy when it makes any little hiccup downward.

  • Stop The Insanity: Apple Doesn't Have An 'iPad Problem' [View article]
    Who needs flash or java? My wife, a programmer and website developer, chose to go with android smartphone over iPhone because the android will run flash. She has been borrowing my iPhone for years, so she can see what websites look like on the iPhone and with the current state of state-of-the-art website design, she discovered a long time ago that there are ways to accomplish the desired result without flash and that for the most part, "flash is trash."

    She also borrows my iPhone, when she wants a better photo from a smartphone.

    And she exclaims at what a better keyboard experience she has with the keyboard on my iPhone than on her equally pricey android phone's all-too-quirky keyboard.

    And she has lamented for quite a while now that Google has totally ruined the experience of using her android phone.

    The result, she is ditching her android phone in favor of the newest iPhone 6.

    With regards to iPad, her Kindle gathers dust somewhere ever since she got an iPad mini, which does everything she used to love her Kindle for, plus a lot more. She carries her iPad mini with her almost everywhere and is even considering whether she really needs a smartphone at all, if she had to choose between one or the other, she has been saying she would opt for an iPad mini with cellular instead of a smartphone.

  • 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?
