  • Apple Should Invest In Original Filmed Content [View article]
    Moxi... You are using old data. I'm using most current. If you use most current qtrly reports, your growth statement is misleading to those that may not know. Quit cherry picking dates & use current data like most investors rely on.

    Moxi.... I see you are cherry picking dates while I use most current information. My info is correct & can easily be verified. Your info may be correct, not sure & don't care, if you compare 2 year old data.

    Moxi.....Me too. Last qtr revs are below vs prior years qtr

    AAPL $ 74.599b vs 57.594b (prior year qtr) = 29.5% growth

    GOOG $ $ 18.103b vs 15.707b (prior year qtr) = 15.2% growth

    Therefore, AAPL's rev growth was almost twice that of GOOG. Yes, GOOG's growth has slowed & APPL's has accelerated based on most recent data available.

    Get your facts straight.

    Long both.

    Moxi... Incorrect on several, if not many, statements. Apple's revenue growth was up 29.5% y/y, actually more than Google's last report.

    I can stream anything that's available on the net from my iPad, iphone, Mac to TV via Apple TV.

    Your assumption for 4k support is just that, an assumption as you nor I know.

    I'm not implying AAPL should enter content industry but simply pointing out that you have misleading info in your post.

    The Apple customer as there are no c.c. data on merchant servers. So no data to hack if Apple Pay is used.

  • Apple Watch Has Implications For Big Data, IoT And Web 3.0 [View article]
    Alex, great article as always. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    I believe the preventive health care data that the watch will provide will be huge for better health seeking individuals. Although there are a lot of devices that measure activity, I believe Apple's ability to scale this opportunity will be massive.

    I know 6 baby boomers (3 couples) that have greatly enhanced their activity level by having a device (iPhone 6) that simply measures steps, stairs climbed, workouts, cycling, etc. Having this data provides continuous incentive to better their past week numbers.

    Since Oct of last year, all 6 have dramatically improved their health. It all started with 1 of the 6 increasing activity level & the other 5 noticing the benefits which motivated them. Two no longer have to take blood pressure meds. The watch will be the catalyst for preventative care with an audience that is absolutely huge.

    There will be many baby boomer customers. Activity metrics provided will lead to an increase in motivation/competition. There will be a lot that will see benefits of early adopters & will embrace subsequently.

  • Apple Numbers Get Serious [View article]
    Whether you agree with Dana or not he does make a valid point that all investors should be aware of for any stock owned. Perhaps there were statements that you disagree with but understanding his main premise of what is necessary to move the stock in the future is, IMO, paramount. I appreciate him taking the time to provide his thoughts. Long AAPL.

    I would have upgraded my 2 year old mini but I want 64 bit & fingerprint. Guess I will wait until later this year. I did get an iPhone 6 (not plus).
