    It's also possible for the card corp to credit your iTunes account for all accrued benefits.

    That's 11% for remainder of 2014 (4 months) which is 33% annualized.

    I would think, although I don't know for sure, iTunes would be used rather than a credit card processing firm (middle piece between retailer & card company) & the card corp would continue to honor their current benefits transparently of iTunes.

  • Apple's iWatch Is About Data First, Fashion Second [View article]
    Sensible article. Thanks for sharing.

    IMO, Apple's success begins with great software. They took the time & therefore the money to make it right from the beginning.

  • Apple's iPad Problem Is Lenovo's Wintel Tablet [View article]
    Mark thanks for article.

    I have bought 8 iPads (5 gifts) & not one was telco based so save data money. Use iPhone when wifi not available & it works perfectly for me & to those that I provided as a gift. Didn't know telco's offered a subsidy for iPads.

  • iPad Refresh Will Boost Shipment Figures [View article]
    Excellent read. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree that a 3 year cycle upgrade is most likely. I am planning to upgrade my mini this year that I bought 2 years ago & give my 6 year old grandson my first mini which runs as well as it did when I purchased it. I think there are a lot of folks that do a similar give away.

    Aperture.... Same experience as you. However, it does take some getting use to after being forced to use PCs for 3 decades. My Mac has absolutely zero issues in 5 years & runs as fast as it did when I bought it. Amazing!

    Water.... Very true. 6 year owner of an iMac with no problems, no viruses, no virus software, no performance degradation either.

    "Will the 5.5" iPhone replace the mini-iPad?"

    Not for me as my mini is a perfect device that I use > 90% of the time. I plan to upgrade from iPhone5 & get a 4.7 in iPhone6 this fall. Personally, even an iPhone6 5.5in would not replace my mini as I need a larger screen & won't carry that big of a phone around. My mini is wifi only so don't carry it around unless overnight stay. Also, if a new mini with finger print & A8 is available I will upgrade then as well.

  • Quantifying iPhone 6's Potential Cannibalization Of iPad, It Is Not Pretty [View article]
    Exactly. Once someone uses an iPad it will be their dominate device for casual web use. My favorite is the mini. Perfect size for what I do which is 90% research.

    Thanks Bill for the update. A lot of optimism out there. Although long & bullish, a bit concerned with the recent level of optimism.

  • iPad Used As Medical Device, Huge Success For Apple In Healthcare [View article]
    I really don't think insurance companies will provide premium breaks to the healthy as they can no longer charge more than a predetermined amount, based on age & tobacco use, for unhealthy or preexisting conditions. Perhaps corporations for which one works for could provide incentives.
