  • Apple + IBM Partnership 2: Implications [View article]
    I am an Apple shareholder and want the company to succeed with their IBM partnership. That said, I do know people who prefer Samsung and of course people who prefer Apple. I think both companies will do well. I believe that IBM stock is the better value right now. IBM has the ability to invent new technology and then sell it off when later inventions are made. And IBM is the company every other company wants to partner and has to watch.

    Then why is IBM rated first in Mobility?
    "IBM has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant Report for Managed Mobility Services. No other IT services organization has been able to achieve this Leaders Quadrant position since the report's inception in 2013."

    Also according to Gartner, "IBM is the market leader in the provision of security information and event management solutions. IBM was able to secure the top position and moves within the guide field ahead of its competitors HP, Splunk and McAfee. The excellent positioning confirms the recent successes in this area. More recently, IBM had climbed in Gartner’s ranking of the security software provider with the strongest sales in third place." http://bit.ly/1w1JteI

    There are more android phones than iphones so the total money spent is likely more for android. In any case, I get your point, especially now that IBM is writing business apps for iphones. I think there's a lot of potential business for smartphone app development.

    There is going to be a short squeeze in IBM's stock when those 100 apps come out.

    Don't under-estimate IBM. They don't do business for free. Compare their return on equity of 85% to other stocks.

    And all of those devices give corporations endless security events. Who has the best security in the cloud? IBM.

    Sounds like Samsung has some serious problems with security updates.

  • Apple: It Is All About Improving Margins [View article]
    I think the price of Apple's stock will continue to go up because of their deal with IBM which allows them to move into the enterprise business with over 100 applications from IBM and IBM's marketing force selling Apple products.

  • Apple: Capitalizing Vs. Expensing R&D [View article]
    Apple finally this year spends $6B in R&D as IBM has been doing all along. I wonder what effect it would have on IBM's balance sheet if they had been capitalizing $6B/yr all along. My guess is some analysts wouldn't have liked it.

  • In Apple's Gains Against Samsung, A Vindication For Tim Cook [View article]
    I've found an interesting article about Watson which many investors and developers are getting into. On this site you can also read about scientific discoveries made by using big data, such as research in genetic abnormalities which lead to brain diseases like alzheimers. Computers can obviously comb through data, research papers, etc., faster than humans. Interesting magazine...

    Forbes has really gone downhill. You better think twice before believing their articles.

    Don't use it then. I hate trackpads and prefer a mouse. But you can't find a laptop without a trackpad.

    I don't think touchscreens are a problem. If you don't want to use them then don't. But if you want to use your laptop like an iPad then you need a touchscreen. At first I didn't think I wanted a touchscreen but once I got one I would not give it up.

    Just wait until all of those IBM business apps come out this month! ... "a new class of more than 100 industry-specific enterprise solutions" developed from the ground up for iPhone and iPad.

    IBM Global Business Services will be leading the charge. The IBM MobileFirst initiative for iOS is very much in line with the IBM tradition of leading with professional services and providing custom application development. Plus, several recent IBM acquisitions are essential to MobileFirst, including Cloudant, Fiberlink, SoftLayer, and Worklight.

    IBM is initially targeting banking, insurance, telco, retail, government, travel, transportation, and health care. According to Buckellew, the apps will be "all about customization, because they have to integrate tightly with the company's back-end systems and they have to fit with what each company is doing. If each company is doing things differently to build competitive advantage, we have to do things that way to meet our customers' needs."

    That said, Buckellew observes that IBM has assembled its own catalog of "starter apps" that should accelerate development by providing 60 to 80 percent of the capabilities and can be customized to particular use cases. "It gives a starting point for us to work much more quickly to deliver really compelling experiences," he says.

    As Buckellew repeatedly noted, IBM is not talking about "simple, repurposed Web apps." The idea is to create native iOS applications that take full advantage of the device, including the accelerometer, the GPS, the camera, and the microphone. These will very much be native iOS applications -- written in Swift or Objective C to take full advantage of the device capabilities.

    "For each one of these apps," says Buckellew, "we have a litmus test: It has to address an industry pain point, and it needs to be powered by analytics. That analytics part is really important, because that's what is going to take the application to the next level."

    ...A whole new class of 100 IBM enterprise applications running on iOS.
