  • Apple's Earnings Fall Is Completely Unjustified [View article]
    Nothing is justified in the stock market, whether it's up or down.

    It's a complete gamble

  • Apple: A Look At The Chart, Historical Comparisons, And Academia [View article]
    You don't fix what's not broken.

    I'm sure the old software was started 5 years ago, but was incrementally improved over the years.

    Same can be said about msft. "nothing new".

  • Apple's Decline: Thanks, iPad Mini [View article]
    @Sidsilver
    People are too focused on specs. They are good enough.

    Creating a tablet for a specific price point causes mfgr to cut corners.

    I don't own a tablet, but I have to say, why include a mediocre component such as a camera, just so you can meet a lower price point?
    People will be disappointed by it. Either put in the best camera you have in the parts bin, or don't include one at all.
    I'm sure apple could have hit the $249 price point by omitting the rear facing camera. But they probably wanted to create a device that could do many things.

    I've played with the ipad mini, and I can say that the camera is good enough to take very good pictures and video. You can't say the same about other tablets.
    Too many tablets have crappy cameras that you don't want to use. It's a waste of money.

    You say you don't need a camera? Ok then, go buy a nexus or kindle. Those are for people who just want barebones.

    Regarding "innovation" = faster cpu and battery,
    isn't that what every other tablet maker is doing?
    Are you implying that google and amazon are innovating?

    No one is innovating. Plain and simple.
    There's nothing to talk about here.

    What apple is doing is perfectly fine. If you were to run a company, you don't lay all your cards out on the table. You gauge the competition, and reveal your goods accordingly.

  • Apple's Decline: Thanks, iPad Mini [View article]
    no one wants a heavy 11" convertible to use as a tablet. It gets tiring to hold.

    the 10" tablet will not go obsolete because of convertibles. It will definitely sell fewer because of smaller and lighter tablets.

    And what is everyone scared of? Who cares if there's a smaller profit margin on the ipad mini when they're selling twice as many units to make up for the margin compression ?

    Is that bad? Ipad mini is selling like gangbusters. They'll probably have higher revenue this quarter.

  • The Repricing Of Apple Shares Should Be Nearly Over [View article]
    I don't believe the $215 video. There's no way they pay $16 for 16gb of ssd. That's more than what we consumers pay for ssd. That fact alone makes me disbelieve the $215 video altogether.

    but I agree with everyone. Apple should have priced the mini at $199 and gave it to us at a loss. how bout that !!! buying something apple at cost!

    you calculated wrong.
    gp is divided by revenue.

    it's (329-188)/329 = 43% gp margin, not 69%. well BELOW margins of other apple toys of late.

    3. Apple has so much cash, they should buy AMD and help return its price to earlier levels.

  • Apple: Will The iPad Mini Even Scratch The Surface? [View article]
    There's likely a good profit margin in the ipad mini.
    But it's a gamble. Couple scenarios-
    -mini cannibalizes ipad biggie, decline in revenues if people opt for the cheaper one.
    -mini sells like hotcakes and makes up for any revenue slip.

    Let's see how apple markets to the sheep.

  • Apple: Pricing Policy, Pricing Power, And Profit [View article]
    apple is not only going after more price points, but it's on a mission to get more market share by trying to destroy samsung.

    the only other phone maker that sells millions of units of a single model is samsung.

    the next lawsuit that has been filed goes against samsung's newest Galaxy S III.
    Take out your nearest competitor and reap the rewards.
