  • Apple's New 64-Bit ARM A7 Chip Is Absolutely Amazing [View article]
    Good article, though will mostly appeal only to techies. As a longtime Mac user (almost 20 years), I'm hoping they deliver the new Mac Pro soon with the best specs of any consumer desktop. Apple's original core business, macs, has been innovatively stagnant for a few years now. Releasing a seriously powerful workstation would beef up the company's prestige not just as a tech leader in mobile consumer products but as a high end computer manufacturer for creative pros and scientists as well.

  • Apple: Now The Fun Begins [View article]
    While I am very bullish Apple longterm, I worry about the unfortunate timing of Apple's product launch: right in the midst of the Syria vote and the 9/11 anniversary. Markets are likely to be volatile this week, and though I'm hoping for a 5-10% pop in Apple stock price, I would not be surprised if short sellers push Apple down to $460.

  • Apple: Reality Bites, So Time To Sell [View article]
    I've heard that, too, but out in Mountain View. Of course googlers are given android phones and chromebooks, but they don't necessarily prefer to use them.

    Anyway, your point is taken. I live in Brooklyn and everyday I am out and about on the streets and I see just about 90% iphones and ipads everywhere--parents, hipsters, middle-aged people, and even kids. While it may be true that galaxy now has more bells and whistles, they just don't have the loyalty and investment of the apple community. Between itunes, apps, and computer hardware, the user-friendly ecosystem makes everything easy. People don't just have phones, they have music, movies, books, podcasts, calendars, contacts, apps, and software, and they continue to buy more and deepen their ties to the Apple, virtually guaranteeing future revenue streams.

  • How Apple Gets To $400 A Share [View article]
    I appreciate the author's take on Apple's possible descent to $400. Fundamentally, I don't see how that is possible, but I wouldn't be surprised, as I've come to believe that Apple's stock price is mostly manipulated by big hedge funds. Being such a high-priced and well-loved stock which has already had a meteoric rise, the only real way for speculators to make lots of money short term is to move the price around and play the expensive options. The biggest easy money is in contrarian bets, like a drop to $400, because the majority of the crowd is so bullish. While I'm extremely bullish on Apple, I wouldn't be surprised to see it drop to $400 before rising to $800--or vice versa.
