    Agreed. Google's services are incredibly useful to its customers--the advertisers.

  • Understanding Apple: Growth In Services  [View article]
    I disagree with the main premise of this article. There was no "serious slowdown" of iPhone sales. On the contrary, iPhone sales last quarter set a new record high.

  • Microsoft Suffers Revenue Decline In The December Quarter  [View article]
    By all estimates the Apple Watch is by far the top selling watch on planet Earth. How is that underwhelming? Perhaps your expectations were too high. Apple has sold more watches in its first year than any other Apple product sold in their first years -- Mac, iPhone, or iPad.

  • Apple status takes a hit, Cook heads to Brussels  [View news story]
    It is also not the world's largest company based on headcount, or number of letters in its name. If we dig we can find lots of metrics where Apple doesn't come out on top!

  • Report: Google paid Apple $1B in 2014 to be iPhone’s default search engine  [View news story]
    Unfortunately for Google, the people most likely to have Android phones are the least likely to spend money.

  • PC sales down strongly again in Q4; 2016 stabilization expected  [View news story]
    Yes. Wishful thinking here, "Most PC users have delayed an upgrade, but can only maintain this for so long before facing security and performance issues."

    What security and performance issues could she refer to? Is she saying Windows 10 isn't so good?

  • Apple Pay Scales The Great Wall  [View article]
    Falling from $120 to $106 is just normal volatility. The market is down at the same time. That's correlation, not free fall.

  • Will Microsoft Follow In BlackBerry's Footsteps?  [View article]
    "Even if Blackberry is credited with inventing the modern day smartphone"? I can't believe anyone would give them that kind of credit. Multi-touch? Nope. Full operating system? Nope. Graphic user interface? Nope. Native apps of desktop quality? Nope. A desktop quality web browser? Nope. Standards based email? Nope. All I remember of the old blackberries was their proprietary email, messaging, and the physical keyboard.

    Well he was clear that they are "users" not "customers."

  • Analyst: Apple's Black Friday the best ever  [View news story]
    Agreed. The Microsoft store is my favorite place to go when I'm looking for a little quiet time, whether for reading or just relaxing in general.

    That's one of many search results. It is a famous (mis)prediction.

    When the best you can say us that something is "on track" to happen, odds are it won't.

  • 25% Allocation To Apple - Too Much Risk?  [View article]
    I wouldn't be surprised if IPad Pro has already outsold Surface Pro, and the slowdown in iPad sales is simply cannibalization by the larger iPhones (i.e., if you are worried about that you must still be really freaked out about declining iPod sales).
