  • Can Apple Burst The Netflix Bubble? [View article]
    New plans, bundles, unlimited data, leases, trade ins, wireless wars are all great for consumer....

    I would love to spend some of aapls 200 billion dollars, I thought they should have bought Sprint years ago, satellite stores , ability to combine data plans and iphones at much lower than industry rates, satellite internet access for all devices. of course as just a armchair quarterback I can only call plays.

    Who doesn't want ad blocking. Much more of a positive for the Infinty loop ecosystem

    biobat and DM ...you guys are probably right in the devaluation of nflx's contribution to aapls share price and pe, but, and always a but, sure would have been an easy score years ago if Reed would have succumbed to the almighty Apple dollars..
    I am just looking under rocks for the non organic growth play for aapl to leapfrog into the evening living room .

  • Apple Drops, Becomes More Attractive As It Aims For Total Victory Over Android And Windows [View article]
    Doc rx..So true, Apple does not reveal it pipeline, only possible leaks are leases signed for real estate, someone seen visiting Infinity Loop, Ie Elon Musk, some supplier showing a case with the camera in a new position...We all are prone to speculate along with Gene Muenster what the next great hardware may be.
    i am brave enough to own lots of shares of Apple but hopefully never brave enough to short..
    keep the articles coming , thanx.

    DM...Interesting hypothetical question. Since the larger spinning mass of Apple could exert strong gravitational forces upon nflx's astronomical smaller body it could be sucked into the black hole of all pe's.

    maybe aapl should pull a google with a alphabet like move, and have a bunch of sattelite sub planets orbiting in its solar system..

    And my favorite exert from the. Planets by Gustav Holst, Neptune /The Mystic

    Biobat. Good arguements, but for Apple to get its overdue growth pe back it may have to assimilate some speculative high growth companies..My main arguement was if big IF they would have had the foresight to jump on nflx year or so ago We Apple shareholders could have made a bucket load of money, now at nflx s current market cap not such a deal...hindsight as always 20/20. Apple definitely has the finances .

    ..A new ui from scratch sounds wonderful and am sure the engineers and programmers employed at infinity loop are exceptional. Ios is simple clean and refined. nflx experience the ui is pretty dang good...also, Outbidding Reed Hastings for content is virtually impossible , so good luck there...

    Never stop spending for new original content, millennials could care less for older titles. Latest and greatest gets all the eyeballs. What I have observed are kids congregating to see the latest game of thrones, or true detective , house of cards, etc on nflx...It is similar to super bowl parties or sports playoff, truly a transitional shift in viewing habits more of a social experience. If you want your friends to come over to your house and hangout you had better have a subscription.

  • Apple Drops, Becomes More Attractive As It Aims For Total Victory Over Android And Windows [View article]
    My anecdotal experiences of family and friends of which some are late adopters to ipads macs , and iphones cannot believe how much better the total experience and ease of use..Always good to hear...

    .As a Apple bull and shareholder I still have criticisms , not directed at iphones but more at Apple tv and the overdue possibilities for content and hardware. It needs to be taken more seriously not a "hobby" a lot of money is being left on the table here. Also glass free 3d technology-holograms , projectors , 4 k resolution, sound systems, large displays, I would be a buyer of all with an Apple logo on them because I know they would be world class design and quality...

    Looks like aapl is secretly developing a gesture controlled 27 to 50 inch screen based product.

    Ski fun fyi they would have purchased a subscriber base, and feet already moving on the ground not sitting in cubicles designing a whole new ui.. Aapl .shareholders would have seen share appreciation in the triple digits and that is what I am concerned with not reinventing the wheel...

    Apple suffers refresh cycle syndrome from the superior build of its hardware. My Dad used to get 300,000 miles out of his Mercedes diesels in the sixties and then got top trade in value.

    @Retired One, Reed Hastings might not have wanted to sell but when nflx stock cratered down to fifty a year or so ago, Apple should have made a play....maybe there was some interest that went unpublicized..

    Beats..... possibly someone else was to make a play for them, who knows, I think they overpayed.. Iovine and Dre worth that much, doubtful. They could have bought Monster Cable which designed the headphones for Beats...for millions not billions...

    The two hundred billion dollars sitting over there in Ireland is a nice safety net for recessions and bad times, but not going after some innovative hardware companies and trying to build it all in house is eating up a lot of clock...

    They could have stolen the fitness band market and the gopro market easily, what is Fitbit and gopro's market caps...

    Don't want to sound negative but they have the power to win just about any race they enter,
