  • Apple Introduces ResearchKit, Giving Medical Researchers the Tools to Revolutionize Medical Studies [View article]
    ResearchKit really sounds COOL. I can see in a year or so how helpful such a device will be to the medical field. And if I'm interpreting your article correctly everyday people like myself, who is a diabetic can participate with readings I can supply on a daily basis. I can see in the near future a doctor calling his patient and telling him to come into the office or go immediately to a hospital as his heart readings are at a dangerous level. I have always been long on Apple and the Iwatch and other types of products they've developed make me realize why I like Apple so much.

  • Apple: It's An App Story [View article]
    Being an Apple share holder I try to follow it closely. I wondered if I should start worrying after reading this article, BUT AFTER READING THE COMMENTS of fellow readers my feet are back on the ground. THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO MADE POSITIVE REMARKS. I do not even read the article, no matter how interesting the articles head line, if it is written by Mr Blair. Thank you for all the positive feed back.

  • Comparing America's 3 Largest Electronic Equipment Companies [View article]
    I found your article very interesting. I am not one to wheel and deal in the stock market, but simply holder of Apple stock which I follow daily. I inherited 200 shares from my parents way back around in the 1960's or so ... believe my parents purchased it for about $45/share. Through splits etc the share have grown to 5600 shares ... Unfortunately my brother sold his shares ages ago, probably for about $100 or so a share ... I know "OUCH !!!" ... Anyway thank you for your article. I am going to print it out and add it to my Apple file ..

  • Apple's Value Creation Going Forward [View article]
    Great article and very well written and also great Seeking Alpha commenter(s).... Great ideas Apple should pursue if they are not already doing so. I am long on Apple and was fortunate enough to have parents who gave my brother and i shares back when it was $45 per share. Really got a kick out of Micheal Blairs $20 Apple purchase and sell at $40 ... LOL ... Hopefully Apple will continue to innovate ....

  • Apple Reports First Quarter Results [View article]
    Micheal Blair is such a "DOWNER" when it comes to reporting on Apple. It seems he just hopes Apple will fail. "NOT A GROWTH STOCK" anymore. Give me a break !!! Apple reported monetary and quantity increases in all areas. Wake up and smell the roses Micheal. Long on Apple.

  • Apple's Secret Weapon Will Yield All-Time Highs [View article]
    I purchased the first IPhone for my daughter, have upgraded Macs and IPads. She has her Masters degree from SDSU and is presently working for Ashford University. Dosen't presently wear a watch but bet she will wear the Iwatch when I purchase it for her. Once turned on to Apple Macs have never had any desire to go back to PC's. I have a number of Apple shares that my parents had given me way back when, which have doubled twice. Bought my first Mac Pro in 2012, because I sent my 92 year old aunt in Ohio my IPad. Also purchased the One on One at the time of my Mac Pro purchased. Extremely happy with both purchaces. For those gamers, or whoever that want a larger screen, just put the phone in the mini IPad and you've got everything. Keep on going Apple. From a life long 71 year old Apple supporter.

  • Apple Is Still Cool [View article]
    Nice to read a positive article for a change. If you ever visit Apple stores, you find they are always busy and crowded. The vast majority of employees are very friendly and helpfully. Microsoft is trying to duplicate the Apple stores. Your article is a breath of fresh air. Thank you. Keep up the good work. The glass is still half full NOT half empty.

  • With international smartphone buyers clamoring for large displays and cheap Android phones spreading like wildfire in fast-growing emerging markets, "Apple’s (AAPL) competitors are finally doing a better job of making the kinds of phones that customers want," writes The New Yorker's James Surowiecki, summing up the biggest fear on investors' minds. But Apple has shown a knack for innovating its way out of tough spots, and can do so again. "Failing to build a phablet or a cheap phone may well have been mistakes, but they’re fixable mistakes." [View news story]
    I feel consultnut is correct. Soon Apple is going to WOW the public. Be it with dividend money or a product. Put a phone in the mini Ipad (iphablet). Go Apple !!!

  • "Samsung Momentum Begs An Answer From Apple" - that's the title of a fresh note from Barclays' Ben Reitzes, who was very bullish when Apple (AAPL -0.9%) was around $700. Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S IV is expected to be announced on March 14, with European/Asian sales commencing in April, and the launch will likely be accompanied by a price cut for the S III, which will allow Samsung to better compete on price. Reitzes thinks both a cheaper iPhone and a bigger iPhone are needed. (earlier[View news story]
    Still LOVE my Apple products NO MATTER what you nay Sayers say. Long on apple !!! Like the other person said just have the mini IPad be capable of phoning and that will end the IPhone needing a BIGGER screen.

  • Apple Earnings Preview: iPhone Down, iPad Up [View article]
    Hopefully at Apple's meeting they will say SOMETHING about the dividend. A rumor from an Apple employee thought "IN SEPTEMBER". Anyone got a better guess ???

  • A Conservative Outook For Apple's Present And Future, Part 2 [View article]
    Being BIG on Apple, I hope your calculations are correct. I love Apple products. May give my 91 year old aunt in Ohio my IPad, so I have an excuse to buy the NEW iPad. Hopefully the upcoming IPANEL will be another big hit. Thank you for your article. From a 70 year old retired Home Depot person, whose parents gave him 200 shares of Apple way back when it was about $51/share. Go APPLE.
