  • Amazon Prime goes to $67 in one-day promotion [View news story]
    This is a total gimmick, occurring just a week before the end of the quarter. Last quarter they ran a "prime sale" at the end of June to goose the numbers reported in July. It worked, with the stock soaring more than 10% after earnings. This is the same. Expect them to tout Prime subscriptions when they report in October.

  • How Apple Should Be More Like Microsoft [View article]
    What Apple haters fail to realize is that security has nothing to do with market share. If you really believed in security through obscurity you wouldn't lock your house or your car. Apple has the commanding lead in mobile operating systems, yet iOS has been relatively free of malware compared to its competitors. And though Mac doesn't have the Manet share of Windows, it's 10% is nothing to sneeze at. If the Mac had meaningful vulnerabilities they'd be attacked.

  • Will Ad Blocking Be Google's Kryptonite? [View article]
    "So in the end if Apple blocks ads in a meaningful way on iPhone the developers and content providers will go to other platforms. It is as simple as that."

    This isn't about blocking ads on iPhone. It's blocking ads on the web. What other platform would these providers go to outside of the web? The answer is they go inside apps, where Facebook and Apple profit at Google's expense.

  • Apple: The Challenged Ecosystem [View article]
    Nice article. Your ability to make up facts is unsurpassed. Now, back in the real world, nothing you said makes a shred of sense. iPhone innovation lacking? Please tell us what kind of "innovation" would please you. Crickets...?

  • Are Google Investors Too Exuberant Before Apple Introduces Its Next iPhone? [View article]
    You might be surprised. Search quality is difficult to measure. In your mind you associate Google with search like Kleenex with tissue, but other search providers get you to your info too, so it's hard to argue that Google is better. I haven't used it in two years and my internet life isn't lacking.Duckduckgo, by the way.

  • Elephant Gun Loaded And Trigger Finger Itchy, Who Will Google Buy? [View article]
    They should buy Morton's salt company. Salt is widely used in baking. Oh, and Sara Lee too. They make good frozen pies.

  • Ad Blocking On Safari Could Lead To Apple Losing Billions In Easy Money [View article]
    I find it difficult to believe that blocking an ad uses any significant amount of computing power over and above what's normally required to fetch, load, and render any other of the tens or hundreds of elements on a typical web page.

    ...and if you can't afford a Starbucks latte, it certainly makes sense that you can't even spell iPhone.

    A link to this so-called patent would have been nice. Without a link, it's hard to take this story seriously.

  • Apple Introduces The Best iPod touch Yet [View article]
    Yes. The iPhone performs all of the functions of the iPod Touch. The iPod, however costs much less because it doesn't have the functions of a phone.
