  • Curated Music Influencing Apple's Jump Into Streaming [View article]
    Hey Moon...are you affiliated with Samsung? What kind of logic are you pushing? Appl does not need to reinvent headphones. They need to take the hardware, perfect it and integrate it into the greatest business model the world has ever known. One, I may add, that you people will be copying in a year or two.

    Although I don't see how your tactics of giving away 2 for 1 at liquor stores and soup kitchens can ever take a cue from this high end environment. It seems to me that Apple will be taking back the high end of your clientelle with hip hop credentials.

    Then too we have no idea what Apple's true intentions are do we? Clearly it is not to get into the headphone business. Thats a Samsung strategy. We deliver far more than hardware. We don't need to invent headphones. You'll be amazed at what we can do with them, and the collaboration, and the additional revenue stream that will pay itself off in under 2 years.

    Has anyone noted that this deal is happening off shore? That is, we can reduce the price tag by 35% bc these are un-repatriated funds. Gosh Mr. Moon the scenario changes when the bottom line is profit and not market share or payback from some imagined insult. The more you look at Apple with envy, the stupider Samsung looks.

    How many different ways can you find to say "I have no idea if or when or what is coming" in a single article and still get paid for it?

  • An Apple Bear Makes The Case For Apple At $1,000 By 2017 [View article]
    Well I don't see Mercedes asking for a bail out. I see GM and Ford who have all the market share. I'm telling you Samsung gives away 2 for 1 phones in the ghetto. When I go to Oak Brook populated by BMW's Rolls Royces and Jaguars I see iPhone and only iPhone.

  • Apple Is Living On Borrowed Time [View article]
    Quality never goes out of style. As for how long one can stay on top I suppose we should ask the Beatles. Or Mercedes. Or Standard Oil

  • Apple Has Little Left To Lose [View article]
    And if thats the case he should be tarred and feathered. And thrown in prison. It is not his role to decimate the stock so he can pick up a few on the cheap.

  • Will Apple Exist 3 Years From Now? How Much Will It Be Worth? [View article]
    Let me tell you two things. 1. If petrochemicals do not go out of style in the very near future none of our portfolios will be worth a damn bc we'll all be living in a post apocalyptic world. 2. At that time you can wheel a citibank full of greenbacks to my farm an it won't be worth an ear of corn or a box of bullets.

    There was a world b4 fossil fuels and the US dollar and there will be one after. So invest in Citi, Exon and all the other corporate fascist murderers like MOnsatan. But you're a fool to think $$$ never goes out of style. I've got a wheel barrrel full of Confederates.

  • 4 February 'Feel Good' Factors For Apple Fanatics [View article]
    Agreed. Well stated w/a great sense of humor and an efficient use of charts. And someone needs to shine a light on CNBC, Cramer and Lee. There was a time when journalism was an honorable profession.

  • Why Apple's Profits Are At Risk [View article]
    Sounds like Samsung's business model. Don't they outsell Apple and make less than half the profits. I thought that was called getting market share. Wall Street wants it both ways and AAPL is damned if they do and damned if they don't.

  • Apple Value Propositions [View article]
    Thats like saying Herman's Hermits were direct competitors to the Beatles. Or that White Castle is a competitor to the best Steak House on the Gold Coast. Though perhaps White Castle has greater market share LOL

  • Why Apple Is Still A Buy Even Though Amazon And Google Have Better Products [View article]
    Give the people what they want. Why is that so hard? Make a bigger screen model and make a less costly model and penetrate greater market share. Cannibalize yourself or someone else will.
