  • It's True, Apple Is About To Crush Microsoft With Business Customers [View article]
    Cybersecurity standards (and the ability to prevent cyber attacks) will be the key selling point for Apple's move in the enterprise environment.

  • Will Apple And Amazon Take Down Sirius XM? [View article]
    The only threat to Sirius XM is Sirius XM, itself. A subscription to Sirius XM will be similar to the cable TV industry wherein the subscription pricing (including the music royalty fee) will become so inflated that people will start looking for a reasonably-priced alternative. Like cable TV, more subscribers does not lead to lower prices---it's higher subscription pricing and more useless channels.

  • Is Apple About To Crush Sirius XM? [View article]
    The answer is no. Apple is not about to crush SiriusXM. There have been a few comments mentioning the technology and that is where it will make a difference. SiriusXM uses satellite technology to transmit the signal to your home, vehicle, etc. Travel anywhere in the country and you can receive a SiriusXM signal--even in the middle of the Mojave desert. Whereas, Apple CarPlay is relying on the cell tower technology to transmit the signal (if I am mistaken, please correct me). Will you need an unlimited data plan to use the Apple CarPlay during a long drive to your vacation home by the lake?

    Is Apple hatching a secret plan to purchase SiriusXM? Because without the SiriusXM technology, Apple CarPlay is nothing more than a glorified podcast in my opinion. After all, it's the technology, stupid.

  • Starbucks Turnaround: Impact On Schultz's Wealth [View article]
    However, it should not be a "one-man company." SBUX needs a succession plan in place before Mr. Schulz permanently retires or dies in his office (whichever comes first). Either way, someone has to step in a lead SBUX to higher profits. One reason not to have the Chairman of the Board and the CEO hold the same position.

  • Liberty Makes Unacceptable Offer For Sirius [View article]
    Perhaps, no SEC investigation. But that does not prevent a law firm, somewhere, conducting an investigation (or filing a lawsuit) on behalf of SIRI minority shareholders. The SIRI has a duty to do what is in the best interest of all shareholders.

  • Starbucks dabbles with soda products [View news story]
    I like that idea. The ability to control the carbonation is spot-on when it comes to soda. Only at SBUX would this be possible---handcrafted sodas.
