  • Report: Apple shutting down Beats Music (updated) [View news story]
    Or maybe it highlights how gullible people are in believing every frigging rumor that floats on the Internet.

    There was actually a TV commercial that had a blonde (sexist stereotype) say .... "I read it on the Internet, so it must be true."

    I believe it's sarcasm, but I could be wrong.

    Who are you going to believe the rumor mill or an Apple spokesman?

    Apple rarely says anything about rumors. This one time they say something and the rumors carry more weight than than Apple.

    I thought that when Apple reported sold, it meant sold to consumers. They never reported sold as something that included channel. And they were the only manufacturer of smartphones that didn't count channel as sold.

    And that's ok. You still have an iPhone 4 and you're now just looking into specs? Weird.

  • Thriving Gold iPhone 6 Black Market In China [View article]
    "This is quite strange....
    All of my friends and colleagues have S4s or S5s and are not even thinking of getting an iphone, guess we are not "everybody"...."

    That is quite strange. ALL of your friends and colleagues have S4s AND S5s.

    That is something. I know one person that has two models of iPhones. But the old one has a cracked case and he didn't think he could get any cash for it that was worthwhile so he uses it as an iPod Touch substitute.

    I can't even say what kinds of phones all my friends and colleagues have. It's not something I pay that much attention to.

    Samsung will come out with a 64 bit processor and it won't make any difference. Apple has a locality base like no one else for things other than clock speed, CPU bits or any of the other geek stuff.

    It's good that the other manufacturers can't figure out what it is either.

    I don't think consumers respond well to negative advertising. Especially when Samsung points the finger at the consumer and calls them stupid.

  • Long lines seen worldwide for iPhone 6 release [View news story]
    This morning. ....

    http://seekingalpha.co...

    But it's a good podcast that's worth listening to.

    The group can't imagine what innovation Apple can do for the 7. Besides "innovation" being an overused word. ... If they knew what innovation was needed in the future, the pundits would be the innovators. But they don't and they will stay pundits.

    To give Bezos credit. He was from Wall Street, had a great idea, left Wall Street and made good on it.

  • Long lines seen worldwide for iPhone 6 release [View news story]
    Re: "Thousands are lining up all over the world for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) new release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus."

    Doesn't really capture it. If you were to take into account all the outlets throughout opening day "millions" would be a more accurate representation of what is happening at all retail outlets around the globe.

    When Apple reports on what they sold this weekend it won't be expressed in thousands.

    While Samsung mocks Apple lines in their ads, there isn't a smartphone manufacturer on the planet that wouldn't kill for the same reception of their new product.

    For those that think this is the result of Apple hype; you can get one first sale with hype. You don't get loyalty with hype. These lines are the result of loyalty by the consumer.

    Consumers aren't buying iPhone 6 and 6+ units this weekend to the tune of some 10 million units because of the clock rate of the CPU. If you're looking at specs to understand why Apply has loyalty you're looking at the wrong place.

    And again. Can you do anything other than ask other people to do research for you?

    Actually, yes. You didn't come out and say "I don't have the time and would you please look it up for me, because my time is more important than yours."

    That would have been honest.

    Oh by the way, they doubled the amount of units from the 5 to 6/6 plus from 2 million to 4 million and they aren't pre-ordering in mainland China. Many people think mainland China is still part of the world.

    Since my time is more important than yours, look up the street estimates of how many units were expected to be sold during the first 24 hours.

    Being a contributor is related what value you have to humanity. You ever hear the catchy phrase: "Lead or get out of the way." You're in the way.

    TIA

    I stopped giving MB clicks a long time ago.

    I wish there was an option on SA to block authors and some users as well.

  • iPhone 6 Release Delayed In China: Will The Launch Be A Bust? [View article]
    As soon as I saw the line that China banned the iPhone that was the end of it.

    I suggest the author go to the link he provided and read the comments section.

    China did NOT ban the iPhone from government purchasing. The original Bloomberg article was WRONG.

    if you seriously followed AAPL you would know that.
