  • You're Wrong About Tim Cook's Apple [View article]
    Howsabout an MRI scan that maps your IBrain just once in sufficient detail so that you can access the reading in ICloud? Encrypted, of course, then you can assess your present tastes and preferences, tweak and enhance them with an online app , and go on to ace online learning courses while you sleep!
    This would eliminate travel needs entirely, aside from socially-oriented trips to desired venues. Work space would involve only the time allotted to income-producing activities. The only problem I can visualize is that many would "cocoon" in a sci-fi world, to the detriment of a fully functioning society. Maybe in the next 15-20 years?
    Some thanks to Issac Asimov,here... It's OK to dream, huh?

  • Investors Need To Stop Obsessing Over Apple [View article]
    Yay Consultnick! Belief guides our decisions, judgement calls down to our most inward details. It is our most precious trait, as evidenced by the competition for it from media, politics and religion. It is likely that our sainted SJ understood this and so guided his principles and leadership to a dominant position. This is an informed business.

  • "The market can drop 400 today and Apple (AAPL +0.8%) will close up," writes The Fly, who says the action reminds him of Dell in 1998 - going up $3/day while the rest of the market cratered. Eying a chart of his GARP (growth at a reasonable price) index (of which, Apple is a member), he thinks it looks top-heavy and ready to fall.  [View news story]
    Apple has issued a patch to fix/avoid said trojan horse; (it is NOT a virus) even if you downloaded the "Flashback" before the fix was issued, you can get clean by going to MacUpdate and get "LittleSnitch" which sniffs out FB and cuts off the commlinks on which it depends.
    May the Farce bewitch you...

  • Time To Make Apple Share The Cost Of Data? [View article]
    This has been a great post and comments re the telcos and cellphone co's environment. Good for me in the decision process of buying a suitable earpiece.
    Isn't it true that Apple is building its own server farm in N. Carolina? Seems to portend an expansion into the telco home turf.

  • How big is Apple (AAPL)? Well, if you took every $1, $2, $5, $10, $20 and $50 bill currently in circulation, you still would not have enough cash to purchase the company. The total value of all U.S. legal tender with a face value below $100 totals up to only $252.8B, which is less than half the value of Apple’s current market cap.  [View news story]
    Another factoid from the Bureau of Useless Statistics.....

    "You can't fix stupid, but you can count on it!"
    -this article is a fine example of ignorance masquerading as authority.

  • Four New Reasons Why Apple's Stock Will Bounce [View article]
    I've owned Macs since the Classic, owned 100 shares of Apple since $79, just bought a new Imac on the take I have made since. BTW, it came at virtually the same price ($1025) I paid for a G5 back in '05. Yay Jobs/Apple!

  • Apple: How Will China iPad Launch Affect the Stock Price? [View article]
    I'm working with a new Imac at present- what I like is getting a brand new OS, a dual core processor and a 21" screen for almost the same price I paid for a Mac G5 with a PPC processor, Tiger OS and a 17" screen five years ago. Another example of Moore's Law, even Bucky Fuller, of getting 2-3x the value for the same cost. ("Doing more and more with less and less")

  • Apple’s Magic Trackpad Signals End of Mouse Era [View article]
    The comment about the trackpad offering the same features as a touchscreen is of great interest. Up to now, I was waiting for the iMac to appear with a touchscreen, like an iPod on a stand. The trackpad makes a move like this unnecessary or redundant.
    The comment about other device makers that are ahead of Apple Inc. is also of interest, but it seems that Apple is the catalyst to make such advances popular with the majority of non-geek users.
    This is the upgrade cycle that was worth waiting for, but I'm awaiting an improvement in the supply situation to make any purchases.

  • 12 Stocks Ready to Rip After Intel's Huge Earnings [View article]
    I own Intel, have since 1990's; it can be variable at times, but mostly steady and reliable. May appear to be slow and ponderous but its vision is clear, witness investment in new fabs while others were shutting down. Its R&D is first-rate and it shows in their latest product line (i.e. Atom). It's a leader for many good reasons- look for further innovation in the future.
    I may sound like a cheerleader, but I worked there in late '80s and early '90's, collecting shares at an employees discount. It's treated me quite well, thank you.

  • Apple's iPad Isn't Cannibalizing Mac Sales Yet [View article]
    I'll be first in line to buy a newer Imac that is essentially a scaled-up Ipad with touch-screen features; bring it on, Apple!

  • Tech Stocks Challenged by Transition [View article]
    I formerly worked at Intel up to retirement, so I feel obliged to note that Intel is not sitting still with the x86 format. They will work out every permutation of x86 to the ultimate, then move as required to maintain their pre-eminence in R&D.
    They have the resources and management to support development in any direction they see fit. Expect them to lead the field in sub-atomic arrays, for example; if anyone can make it practical, they will.

  • Apple’s iPad Ushers in Era of Curated Computing [View article]
    OK, please inform about what the Ipad WON'T do; how do you print out important messages without being hooked up to a Mac?
    Perhaps Bluetooth will serve, as well as taking phone messages- in both cases, you will need BT-enabled devices. Now add in the extra expense of the new devices, and there you are with a total cost very similar to a basic Imac, yes?
    How have the more mobile users solved this? As a desktop Imac-centric user, maybe I'm missing something, or all we are hearing abut is the gee-whiz features, not the limitations.

  • The Web Is Killing Radio, Newspapers, Magazines, And TV [View article]
    I second EDE16; esp. the coffee and weekend print. I think I think, I think, and the Web serves to open up new options. Coffee's good any day:"the think drink".
