  • The iPhone 6 May Have A Longer Upgrade Cycle - If So, Expect Unit Sales To Fall [View article]
    Ok, you have a point. However, consider also market expansion, namely new buyers in China, India, and other developing markets, which will result in more new unit sales.

  • Apple's Big iPad Problem [View article]
    Sorry, in my earlier comment I wrote that automobile was invented in 1985 by Karl Benz. It was in 1885.

  • Apple's Big iPad Problem [View article]
    As I said before on numerous occasions, there are people out there who make their living by writing negative articles and comments about Apple. You invent a product once, which Apple did with iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc. After that, you incrementally improve it. That is what Apple and others are doing. Automobile was invented by Karl Benz in 1985. It is still automobile, but has been vastly improved through incremental changes. We should also ask these writers what "innovations" they would have liked to see in the newly released iPAD. I am sure Apple will look at their "innovative" ideas and suggestions.

  • Apple's 2% Market Share In India Needs Urgent Remedy [View article]
    Good point. Apple has no business in competing in a market for market share where most customers value price over quality or cannot afford quality. Can you get a Rolls Royce at 50% discount in India? Obviously, No.

  • A Seriously Siri-Less Apple [View article]
    A lot of people like me whose language (Turkish) Siri cannot speak do not care. We do not and cannot use it anyway. However, as others commented, I am sure Apple has an alternative.

  • Seadrill: What Would Lord Palmerston Do? [View article]
    I am underwater. I picked up more shares to dollar average. I feel that the storm will move and the air will clear for SDRL down the road. How soon? I do not know. I am hanging in. If I sell, I will lose big. If I hold, I might recover and win big. No matter what we do, the market is a gambling table.

  • Update: Apple Xiaomi Problems Grow [View article]
    Sorry, I did not even attempt to read this article. Why? I have read thousand of these in the past decade. They all regurgitate the same thing--the demise of Apple. Yet, Apple is bigger and better than ever. Most writers do not understand or want to understand who buys Apple products and why. The often-mentioned automobile analogy is the key. Apple customers are Porsche drivers. They like to own and use elegant and high quality goods, and will pay the premium price for them. I am one of those and will not take even free if someone gives me a Chinese knockoff or Samsung.

  • iPhone 6 And Android Value [View article]
    Ultimately, the market and users will tell us who is right or wrong. Personally, I would not buy or even take free a Chinese knockoff even if it had comparable specs to an iPhone. The satisfaction of having something that is elegant, functional reliable is worth paying 2-3 times more. I bought 2 Windows laptops ($300 and $550, respectively) in recent years. They were just junky, useless, virus laden. I went back to a $1500 MacBook Air. What a difference?

  • Apple Is A Luxury Brand And That Is The Problem [View article]
    For sure, I would go with Tiffany's, Porsche, BMW, and their likes as long as I could afford them. I own Apple products (iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air and Pro), Apple shares, and a Porsche. They are all great and perfect for my needs. I am not rich, but I pay for good things if I like them.

  • Apple Hasn't Solved The Smart Watch Dilemma [View article]
    First, I would say enjoy it to those who love to have one. Second, the market, not SA authors, will determine if it is a dud or success story. Third, I do not see the point of having an AppleWatch if I also have to have an iPhone with it. I have an iPhone, I can get most of what AppleWatch would give me on my iPhone.

  • Apple updates MacBook Pros, cuts prices [View news story]
    As a Mac user since 1994, I gave a try to two different HP laptops ($400-550 range) for my wife's use. They are both gone now because they were infected with virus and we were tried of installing software updates and of sales pitches by many intrusive and misleading third party vendors pretending to be Microsoft or HP. The charger also went out in one of the machines. In short, we decided that it is better, less headache and frustration to pay even 5 times more for a Mac than a Windows machine. Let us hope that Apple will keep making and selling these great computers.

  • Apple's CC: iPad sales, margins, M&A, cash balances discussed [View news story]
    I guess we are all the same in different ways. Your is the iPad. Mine is a MacBook Air (13-inch) and an iPhone combination. I must have a conventional keyboard and a larger screen, and I am willing to put up with extra weight and size. If you go to Asia, a smartphone is the only device people can afford and they use it for everything.

  • Terrorism In Iraq And Turkey: How To Trade It [View article]
    First, I am a Turk, and I have been following Turkish politics since 1948. Şemsettin Günaltay was prime minister and Ismet Inönü was president when I started following politics. Erdoğan is the most corrupt and most shameless leader Turkey has ever had during my lifetime. Second, if you need proof, listen to the recordings of telephone conversations between him and his son Bilal as to how to zero hundreds of millions of dollars of bribe money they were keeping at home. Also, read the foreign press.

  • Terrorism In Iraq And Turkey: How To Trade It [View article]
    First, Typo. The Turks are not Christian, nor are they Western. They used to be moving in the direction of being Western before the government of the Fascist, corrupt dictator (Erdogan) in charge now. Second, I would not touch Turkish stocks and anything from that part of the world.
