  • Innovation Lies At The Heart Of Apple - Doesn't It? [View article]
    Oh dear, even after all this time of studying the company, you really do still not understand Apple at all. You do not seem to understand people either, or the concept of quality.
    People are prepared to pay a premium for quality, many people want to have the best. They do not want imitations.
    To save you getting further under-water with your Apple investment, why not take a look at Porsche cars? The current models still do the same job as the models of 30 years ago. They even look similar. Competitors may make bigger, or faster, or brighter cars, but still people want and buy the Porsche models.
    If you can finally grasp why, then perhaps you can save yourself from even worse losses on Apple 'investments'.
    Just trying to help.

  • Apple's Big Year Will Be 2015, So Here's My $120 Price Target For 2015 [View article]
    Don't forget that The 10x leap in graphics performance with Metal and iOS 8means that Xbox and playstation are there for the taking. That's another potentially huge revenue stream.

  • Apple's Venture Into Mobile Medical Applications: A Game Changer? [View article]
    If professional football clubs, NBA teams, baseball clubs, rugby clubs start insisting that their players wear these devices to improve monitoring of their health and fitness, do you think that fans may express an interest in the devices (I watch)??

  • Apple Bulls: You Win [View article]
    I do not understand why so many people have a problem with product evolution. BMW and Mercedes have worked this strategy successfully for decades. There are cheaper alternatives to their cars, but people like the quality and the brand. That is what sustains them.
    People appreciate Apple quality and the brand and that is going to sustain them for some time.
    The main competitor sells clones of Apple products and has never demonstrated any ability to innovate, so where is the great threat from?

  • Google: The New Tech Punching Bag [View article]
    Google search is no better than Bing, it still gives too many directory sites at the expense of the local businesses that users are looking for. The cost of adwords advertising has been pushed too high and is starting to turn advertisers away. People are begining to realise that using google search is very much based upon habit and past reputation.
    The issues around privacy cannot be underestimated.
    The author could be right in suggesting that Google is approaching some kind of watershed moment.

  • iPhone 6 Expected To See Robust Demand [View article]
    Your findings are largely based on the assumption that iphone 6 will cost $100 , or 50% more to build than iphone 5s. This is pure fantasy and wildly distorts your calculations ( to which end ?)
    You seem to atttribute the greatest part of this increase to the use of sapphire.
    The iphone 6 is already a major update to existing iphones. Its more likely that sapphire wiil be used for the iwatch.
    Why would they not want to hold back sapphire to create buzz for the iphone 7

  • 3 Reasons Apple Buying Beats Is Smart [View article]
    If they want an upmarket audio company, why not just buy Bose and get headphones, and all the speaker technology they could want?

    I agree that if Apple want to buy Beats, they must have a good reason. It just doesn't appear to be anything that anyone here has come up with yet.

    Anyone got any more ideas?

  • Sifting The Apple Rumors: iWatch [View article]
    You may not have noticed that the younger generations do not wear watches at all. This may be because they do not want to wear what their parents wear and also because they already have phones that tell them the time. The watches that the young can afford are simply not cool. Rolex, or cartier are out of their reach.
    Now give them the chance of wearing an extremely cool new iwatch and suddenly you have a vast untapped market of new watch customers.

    Many older customers may struggle with a small screen, but will still be attracted to the new technology and the chance to look young and hip.

    The potential is there, but its all about delivering a cool and highly functional product.

  • Galaxy S5 Sets The Bar Low For Apple's Upcoming iPhone [View article]
    The problem for an I-clone manufacturer is that if you release your product ahead of the product you are copying , then you have to clone the rumour in the absense of facts. Hence they throw in new sensors, but without really understanding why they are doing it.

  • Apple In India - The 'Mercedes' Argument Does Not Make Sense [View article]
    If apple offered a cheap iphone in india, most of the units would finish up being shipped abroad and resold in the developed markets, costing apple a fortune in lost premium rate sales elsewhere.

  • 3 Potential Threats This Tech Giant Is Facing [View article]
    Googles biggest threat is the loss of trust from consumers. They have become increasingly aware of just how much google spies on them, collecting and storing data on all their searches and scanning their emails. This leaves the door open for an "ethical" search competitor who does not keep records of all their searches, or websites visited. A competitor who perhaps lets consumers decide what personal data they are prepared to let the search provider retain. European users are already starting to abandon Google , a company they increasingly distrust.
    When you couple this with The mess that the Google panda updates have made of local search ( the results now are mainly paid advertisements, or business directory listings. Bing yields far more usable and relevant results) , the search engine market is now more open than ever.
    If Apple were to provide their users with a quality search experience that guaranteed privacy, then IOS users would quickly and happily abandon Google search.
    Microsoft has the opportunity to strike in a similar way.

    This coulld be Googles achilles heel.
