  • Microsoft Could Trounce Apple This Summer [View article]
    Just for grins...According to an IDC report in May, Apple was the number one table brand in the market in Q1 2013 with 19.5 million units sold. Apple outsold Samsung, Asus, Amazon and Microsoft who accounted for only 14.3 million units sold in the quarter combined. With North America buying over half of the tablets, it's amazing that Apple's iPad holds 82% of all tablet traffic for the first 5 months of 2013. If further illustrates the strength of Apple's iPad brand and the savviness of their user base.

  • BlackBerry Sells Out In 90 Minutes At Selfridges [View article]
    Mr. Know.....the pumping by the multiple acct. Sa posters bbry longs, with under forty comments has been going on for along time with all their likes and feedback....obviously Bbry employees IMO.....the problem is new investors may take their advice and invest accordingly.....fundam... never lie in the long term and playing leveraged options can wipe out an investment acct in the wink of an eye.....when there is no guidance given by CEOs at conference calls it is best sometimes to put the leather on the street...I often ask salespersons at cell phone providers how new rollouts have been selling....it may only pertain to a localized demographic and anecdotal but until they say " we can't keep it in stock or we hardly got any stock in to sell or .....Recently I spoke with regional manager of T mobile and he said Samsung is paying them a fee to keep the overstock shelved instead of sending them back....a year and a half ago I asked about the play book and store manager said they were promised stock and it never arrived...
    I don't believe everything I read on the forums or headlines everyone has an agenda.....fundamentals matter...getting stuck in a trade with no future guidance is perilous , been there done that..

  • More on Apple: 1) Fresh details about iOS 7: it supports head-tilting gestures (echoes of Samsung's Smart Scroll) and new enterprise features, including the ability to control which apps/accounts can open a document, and the ability to let apps automatically connect to a VPN. 2) Apple won't be able to add the Galaxy S4 to its new Northern California suit against Samsung (SSNLF.PK). Apple has already included dozens of older Samsung devices in the suit. 3) Apple's new ad (video) had the lowest effectiveness score of the last 26 ads the company has released, according to a study from ad measurement firm Ace Metrix. [View news story]
    Only a fool predicts future stock prices publicly....you should buy on conviction crunch the numbers and quietly accumulate dollars like warren buffet...

    Msft s latest commercial trying to show ineptness of aapl's products of trying to pinch to zoom enlarge the icon screen on the iPad is and then compare the surface is hilarious.....

  • Can Apple's Stock Be Saved? [View article]
    Pasted from ....an IDC report in May, Apple was the number one table brand in the market in Q1 2013 with 19.5 million units sold.

    IMO At some time in the near future tablet sales may equal out to phone sales...the pc is dead..

    On another thought Heins not committing bb10 to the play book pretty much doa's that device....He is going to bury what is left of that co.

    In this volatile market I always sell half going into earnings ...that way if they miss I don't kick myself and if they hit the cover off the ball I still make the gains ...you can always buy back in when the market corrects... Pretty hard to impress Wall Street these days...
