  • Apple: Tim Cook Isn't The Problem [View article]
    I agree whole heartedly! A split that is announced and broadcast on billboards and social media would allow hoards of potential investors to gather resources and get in. A 6 for 1 or even 10 for 1 would make current holders very happy and at $50 ps be affordable to the masses with great growth possible.

  • Apple Shares Set To Rise [View article]
    A watch, TV, electronic payments - why aren't there 5 to 10 more things in the pipeline? Investors should be getting news about innovative life and social improving developments. Where are the appliances, security items (cameras), home medical devices....Are the creative people all working on the same things at the same time?

  • Why Steve Jobs' Big Blunder Is Starting To Cost Apple [View article]
    Apple could make another mint and change the world by creating a clip-on camera that uses the i-phone to stream video into the cloud. Criminals would have less argument of their deeds at all levels of society. There's a radio interview on right now of a guy who has stolen dozens of phones - he could have been stopped much sooner had his actions been broadcast early on. School bullies are a top reason students drop out - they can be stopped with a clip on camera the very first time they victimize people. Accidents, mistreatment, thefts, many violations can be documented and bring safety back to civil society. I'll pay $100 bucks for a great discrete camera and use it every time I go out of my home.

  • Could Apple Be Working On The 'iBank'? [View article]
    No they couldn't use their credit cards - there was no electricity for weeks - merchants were only taking cash and doing their business either by hand or on battery powered calculators....but cell phones did have internet service in certain spots. I-Tunes was running just fine - Emergencies like these can happen anywhere anytime. People were frantically scrambling to get cash for the first week of November. I think this would be great for Apple - they would be helping people get cash when they desperately need it.

  • Could Apple Be Working On The 'iBank'? [View article]
    This would have worked very good for tons of people during Hurricane Sandy who were stuck at shelters and either had no access to ATM's or who had to hang onto the small amount of cash that they had for taxi's, kid's milk, diapers etc... Lending cash to strangers is almost a guaranteed losing proposition but to be able to have that cash immediately reimbursed via i-tunes would have made life much easier for a massive number of borrowers and comforting for peer lenders. I think this is a social improving idea! Full steam ahead!

  • The Apple Obsession And The Facebook IPO [View article]
    I just saw a video that showed the Iphone5 that looked 3mm thick, had a full size keyboard (with a mouse?) projecting onto a tabletop and a hologram projector to watch videos - it's beautiful and floats away from the device like R2D2 from the Star Wars movie....Should we even be calling these devices 'smart-phones' or are they more like 'super-phones?' What's next? Will Apple one day revive shaking hands to seal a deal or kiss a loved one goodnight through projected sensory light from our phone, eye wear or wristwatch devices? Will we be able to touch things or try them on before actually ordering the item? The Iphone5 is something to behold.

  • No Reason To Think Apple Has Reached A Top [View article]
    Here's a quick comparison with probably even less significance: On April 10th Apple closed about 247% higher in price than Amazon. Today, May 15th the gap has closed significantly - by about 100 points. That's 25 trading days, Apple is now about 147% the price of Amazon, of coarse subject to change rapidly.

  • What Will An Apple Bubble Look Like? [View article]
    Does Apple even consider themselves as competing with BB10? Companies using BB will continue to do so until Apple turns it attention there. I just can't imagine teens and pre-teens wanting a BB10 for Christmas over an Iphone5. My bet is they are developing technologies that leapfrog everyone in business communications both hardware and service and when it is released will be phenomenal. The current price for Apple products is very high compared to Android, PC what-have-you but I'll tell you what ... The Macbook bought in '03 has never had virus protection updates (Big$$$ over the years for my PC) and has outlived not three, but four PC's. Over time and with their dependability Apple is a cost saver. Plus, I doubt you will find many original Mac's in any landfill....they're beautiful and probably still working!

  • Apple Adds $12.5 Billion To Cash, Now $116 Per Share [View article]
    I don't remember there being a lottery in China to purchase a PC. For apple products it is: enter a lottery, show proof of funds, win the lottery, get an expected date, wait, receive item, pay. Millions enter monthly. There are 100+ countries awaiting i-whatever's. Apple should buy a 3d printing company, Twitter, an airline and build 100 water parks. Then split the stock by 100 so students can buy in at $6 to $7 a share. I wonder how long it would be until it's over $50 again.

  • Apple Destroyed Earnings. What's Next? [View article]
    There are millions of people very comfortable using regular pre-paid cell phones that come without pesky 2 year contracts with battering cancellation penalties. Some carriers talk sweet until you actually become a customer. With a simple trade-in program for old phones and financing built into the monthly payments, a gigantic market is waiting for all versions of iphones, both sizes of ipads and profitable accessories. Just getting ready for that US bonanza day after Thanksgiving should be a real undertaking let alone Asia, Europe, Africa....Boggling, just boggling.

  • Apple's March Quarter Results: The Good, The Bad And The Irrelevant [View article]
    Refinement, durability, longevity - Coolness for all ages. There are thousands of white Macbooks from the early 2000's that still run today as amazing as on day one. The quality of these products put them on the top of everyone's Christmas list. Now it would be nice for Apple to invest back into the US worker by opening a few hundred small plants to make wifi appliances, cars, exercise equipment and lawn mowers. Having things like these integrated would reduce energy waste and remind us to do certain things. I have a feeling Apple would give us the best and safest ovens, fridges, stand mixers, laundry machines and coffee makers that can all chat with our phone or pad when a door seal is getting old or more water is needed for the bread dough. Apple stores could become Apple malls with a little less profit in mind and more local long term investment. More jobs more sales more innovation more prestige more impact.

  • Is The Apple Dividend Overrated? [View article]
    Things could have gotten much more interesting had they planned a stock dividend that increased by the quarter and split the stock by 10. Who would have been unhappy if they could get in for $57 a share? How long would it take to break $100? Who would have been unhappy if suddenly their existing number of shares increased 10 fold and then increased in number and value again every quarter - if people sell shares that is their choice but it's quite obvious what the Ipad is doing to the laptop and the space for growth is almost limitless but $570 a share is visually expensive. Slashing the price to attract more investors, rewarding current investors, and compounding the value Q to Q all at the same time with no payment of cash involved - really, who's not happy?
