  • Apple Has Peaked: The Warning Signs Are Multiplying [View article]
    No Financehulligan,
    SA is a place for respectful, constructive discussion. Trolling ruins this place and prevents this. Some don't know how to express themselves and be respectful in tone and content at the same time. To do so was part of your agreement when you signed up to participate.

  • Apple Q4 Earnings Preview: iPhone 5 Launch Adds To The Upside [View article]
    @riwm

    First, who is your comment directed at?

    Second, what is the point of this cut and paste? You haven't connected it to anything at all, but looking at your above posts, you seem to think that bullish statements about AAPL is denial. You have your point of view, and because it is your own doesn't mean that it is reality and an opposing view is denial.

    Since you claim to understand innovation inside of Apple, how about explaining how innovation works inside of Apple, who are the primary leaders of innovation within and why is it gone?

  • "If Steve Jobs were still alive, would the new map application on the iPhone 5 be such an unmitigated disaster?" asks Joe Nocera. It's a question many others are also asking, given the huge backlash to iOS 6 Maps. But to Nocera, a potentially bigger concern is that Jobs' absence will limit the risk-taking that drove Apple's (AAPL) meteoric rise. Joshua Topolsky: "The iPhone 5 is unquestionably the best iPhone ever made ... but right now Apple seems to be in a holding pattern, too comfortable or too scared to take real chances."

    Yeah, I bet. LT got lost using iOS6 maps and almost died in the desert. FUD!

    Seems to me like most of the complaints are coming from anti-Apple guys trying to stir things up as much as possible....constant griping as if you have been personally traumatized by a missing dot or a distorted bridge.

    I'd bet that most of you guys don't buy Apple products judging on how you all like it dis them. Those of you that have iOS6, have you all gotten lost and felt helpless, so you are venting? Can't find your way? Can you find Safari, google search Google maps? If you're still lost, then come back and ask us questions.

    You could think of a map program as having thousands of minor bugs to fix....the program wil constantly improve over time. Google had a lot of problems too, and their Maps improved over time. Google is far from perfect too....they have some inaccuracies that one of the businesses that I am a customer of, repeatedly called for months...Google never fixed it, and new customers always get lost.

  • After meeting with Samsung (SSNLF.PK) execs, Google's (GOOG) Eric Schmidt provided a more spirited defense of the top Android licensee's legal fight against Apple (AAPL) than what Google provided following Apple's California win. "Patent wars prevent choice, prevent innovation ... With respect to Apple patents, the best thing we can tell there are plenty of prior arts." But Schmidt, who probably doesn't want to see Google's iOS search deal go away, still called Apple "a very good partner." (previous[View news story]

  • Apple (AAPL) has added 4 more Samsung (SSNLF.PK) products, including the hit Galaxy S III and the Note 10.1 tablet, to a U.S. patent suit that's separate from the one that delivered a favorable jury verdict last week. The suit, which is related to 4 software patents and now involves 21 devices, is also being filed on Apple's home turf, via the U.S. District Court of Northern California. The S III and Note 10.1 arrived too late to be among the devices Apple could request bans for in response to its jury win. [View news story]
    Agree with that Joe, good comment....it takes a good deal of circumspection to view the situation in its entirety... like the tragedy of the commons, it is difficult for many to see how their short-term benefit leads to their long-term detriment....thus they disregard protection of IP, and paint Apple as stifling innovation rather than protecting the incentive to innovate....

    I would say that they will avoid doing so as much as possible...for Apple that is counter to their image and brand....and in most instances the trade off would be a negative one....and, they need to deny Samsung with legitamate firepower to counter the current litigation....

  • Research In Motion (RIMM) is readying two BlackBerry 10 phones for early 2013, CEO Thorsten Heins tells AllThingsD. One is a touchscreen-only device similar to a prototype shown at an uninspiring conference, and the other has a keyboard. Heins also calls RIM's data network, the subject of IBM buyout rumors, a "key strategic asset," and says he isn't worried about missing the holiday season since carriers tell him most of their Q4 business is prepaid. Apple and Samsung would beg to differ[View news story]

    Did you click on the wrong page? This is AAPL, trailing PE 14, forward PE 11. AAPL is a growth stock selling at a discount to an average stock's PE. We aren't paying a premium, but getting it at a discount.

  • Why RIM Is Still A Good Long-Term Pick [View article]
    The speck of light in this vast darkness is called "BB10". It is in fact being pitched to Disney, but they require a title change before being made into Pixar's next movie: "Toy Story 3: a Blackberry Implodes!"
