  • Apple: The Stark Contrast Between iPad And Surface Sales [View article]
    Davel you are right in certain ways. Those purchasing Windows are cost conscious where else Apple product purchases are less cost conscious. Apple purchaser is more brand conscious than cost.

  • Gold Crush - It Ain't Pretty And It Will Get Uglier [View article]
    I hope you are right like what many are saying. Surely it will not go lower than the actual cost to mine for 1ounce of gold. The problem is that to my knowledge it is about $561 to $919 according to where it is produced. The lowest is in US and the highest is in Africa. Will the lowest be $919 or $561.

  • Qualcomm break-up could lead to deal with Intel? [View news story]
    Surprise Surprise. So fast. Just a year ago Qualcomm was a worthy opponent of Intel. Yes it is possible, with Apple having its own CPU. Samsung is also going the same line. Samsung not only will make and use CPU for its own but will be a supplier to others too. Intel is has already threaded into the mobile and tablet CPU business for its survival. I did not think that Qualcomm will throw in the towel so fast. Intel is already having a legacy behind itself and now to take over Qualcomm will not be a good idea as far as traders are concerned. For a foreign company to take over will be tough with US Government. Let see what happens.

    Denial. The fact clearly show that Apple Tablet volume is going down and Microsoft Tablet volume is going up. Full stop. It clearly tells us that Apple is making lesser money than before and Microsoft is making more than before in selling Tablets. This is only a small part of Apples and Microsoft revenue That's all. We have to use wisely this information plus more in making investment decisions. As simple as that.

    I agree with you. Surface is still scratching the surface because of its price. Its cost much more than a good laptop. Lately I decided to go for a Laptop with touch screen instead of surface mainly driven by cost. If Microsoft is not going to work on the cost it is never going to beat iPad or Android tablets in sales.

    Right on the dot. iPAD is for general use and Surface is more for business use. Agree cannot compare apple for apple. The article comparing its sales does not mean anything at all.

  • Sale Of HERE Should Open New Doors For Nokia [View article]
    Sure. Here is totally not aligned to its current business. Wait. There were articles that Nokia is going to make phones again. If it is the case, selling off Here is a very bad proposition. Here can give more value for their phones.

  • Apple Earnings Will Blow Past The Pundits, Again [View article]
    Don't forget that PC was supposed to be Apples business (Apple, Apple 2, Apple 2e etc.) which it lost to the Microsoft and Intel. The smart phone which could have easily been Microsoft was lost to Apple. Microsoft has tried hard to go head on with Apple. It realizes that it is too late. It agrees for coexisting. Now Microsoft is coming with the strangle hold of roping everything into its ecosystem. Not argument but facts.

  • Gold Crush - It Ain't Pretty And It Will Get Uglier [View article]
    True. Analysts has to view gold differently. It is no more the fundamentals. Paper gold. It is timing. For the hucksters to pull up gold price is more easy than bringing down. How low can anyone bring down the gold price? As it goes lower it get tougher to go down further as big consumers of gold like India and China will quickly grab the physical gold. This will automatically raise the gold price. These hucksters will look at the big consumers of gold, are not in a position to grab the gold to lower the gold price. Now the gold price is down mainly because China stock market is down and the China is pumping billions to bring it up. So it is in no position to grab the low priced gold. The gold will be at the current price for some time till China stabilizes.

  • Is It Good That Microsoft Lost The Console War? [View article]
    Agree. Apple like Microsoft lost the PC business which it originally created (Apple, Apple 2, Apple 2e etc.) with no focus on the market. When Microsoft did not quickly seize the Internet, it nearly lost its business. After catch up it did ok. When smart phones emerged it waited for it to mature, so that can do the same as Internet. This time it went wrong, the smart phone totally slipped out of hand and became a threat to Microsoft core the PC. Now Microsoft understands that its survival is no more going for battle but co-existing. That is why Microsoft is creating an ecosystem in which Microsoft provides management capability, security and development for all platforms and devices on the Cloud. Today Office runs on all devices too.

  • Bottom Of Chinese Stock Market May Be In Place [View article]
    Chinese are slowly learning the capitalist ways. This is one of the learning process. It has used a lot of cash to pull up its economy. This is why the gold price has gone so low. 1) China is one of the heavy consumers of gold although it produces a lot of gold. 2) With China having a economic crunch they are unable to take advantage of the low gold price to buy all up. 3) When China overcomes its economy crunch, the gold price will go up back to at least $1200.

    JB, I fully agree with you. Don't underestimate these big bullies. They can bring gold down further with their money. For them up or down is money. So watch out.

    Again it happened. Gold went down very steeply without any reason. If the rise in USD than it is not so. Greece suddenly ok is also not. What is it? Speculation maybe a little. Manipulation by paper gold, is the most probable. Watch out gold is not good for most of us who cannot survive a very deep dive at an unsuspecting moment.
