  • Evidence That Apple Intends To Start Mobile Payment Processing [View article]
    With rumors of larger screen IPhones starting production and potential introduction in June, this article puts in place a rather explosive one-two punch. If Apple were to introduce it's secure payments system at the June Conference, it would most likely identify the finger matrix device and the A7 chip as essential entry point hardware for "Ipay". As the roll out of Ibeacon starts, millions and millions of non A7 devices would need to be replaced. The loyal following would assure a massively successful rollout.

  • The Coming Market Impact Of Apple's 64-Bit A7 [View article]
    Brilliant. Can you, in your next enlightening piece, give us a sense of the new functions that this processor, and its family, mated with a biometric could deliver? What levels of security could be written into it? What could we ask this constantly on, constantly sensing, constantly communicating do? It's competition still eats battery life, freezes and is highly virus and hack prone. How long before they catch up?

  • "Here's a novel way to drive up a company’s share price," writes the NYT's Jeff Sommer. "Pay billions of dollars in additional taxes." Forensic accountant Robert Olstein reckons that companies such as Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO) should repatriate the tens of billions dollars they hold abroad, pay tax on it, and then use the rest of the cash to repurchase stock. That would boost their share prices by at least 20%. [View news story]
    Maybe I don't understand. If Apple held their cash foreign accounts and just bought shares of Apple thru their local foreign brokerage accounts, would not the float be reduced worldwide by the whole 50 or 60 billion dollar equivalents without repatriation? Holding its cash in it's own stock would be both profitable to itself and it's stockholders.
