  • Don't Focus On Apple Watch Edition Pricing [View article]
    Smartphones are useless. They are not stand-alone products, just accessory computers. They are largely redundant. Your laptop can already tell time and can present a far more usable view of mobile apps. If you already have a laptop, chances are it will last far longer on a battery charge than a smartphone. It adds unnecessary layers of complication to communication and time-telling for the sake of bundling so many functions into a pocketable computer.
    People who own smartphone stock should be at least concerned. They have the potential for bad publicity through the failure to deliver on hype.

    We only lose a little bit on each sale, but we will make it up with volume!

  • Google co-founders to sell $4.4B of stock [View news story]
    Who wouldn't cash out a few billion? Let me tell you--somebody who expected that few billion to be worth more than a few billion down the road. This is not a good sign.

    Are they naked long puts or are they just one leg of long vertical put spreads?

  • Apple Numbers Get Serious [View article]
    "On an average day that's just 115,000 shares."

    Dana, check your numbers!! AAPL's average daily volume is reported between 55-60 million (depending upon the source).

  • Apple: Bears Resurrect The Commodity Bogeyman [View article]
    "Competition is important, if Apple has no competition their tech will stagnate."

    I disagree. Apple isn't driven by the competition's current products. Apple is far out-thinking everyone. They know where they want to be in five years, maybe ten years. Then they drive themselves relentlessly in that direction. It's been said many time, "don't skate to where the puck is, skate to where it's going to be." Today's competition is where the puck is.

  • Beginning Of The Next Growth Phase For Microsoft [View article]
    Microsoft needs Windows 10 to be a success, and that's not a sure thing. I'd wait and see how this release goes before jumping to any conclusions.

  • Why Buying Softcard Could Be A Game Changer For Google Wallet [View article]
    Right. Unlock phone. Open the App. Type the PIN... It's not nearly as convenient. With Apple pay, you don't press any buttons. You just hold the phone near the terminal and touch the sensor.

  • Google's Search Engine Contract With Apple Is Coming To An End [View article]
    Nobody will notice a difference in search quality. I stopped using Google about two years ago. I used Bing for a while. Now I use DuckDuckGo. Everything is fine.

    The default search engine is user selectable. Apple can shift away from Google freely and you can set whatever you like for your own default. I prefer DuckDuckGo.

    Get real. Just because they might change the default to something else rdoesn't mean you can't reselect Google as your own default.

  • My Bet Is That Microsoft Will Outperform Apple In 2015 [View article]
    In Mac OS you can drag and drop a file into the Save window. In Window you can't. On the Mac you can move or rename an open file. On Windows you can't. A lot of handy features that Macs have haven't yet been incorporated into Windows. I guess we are even then.
