  • Can Apple Burst The Netflix Bubble? [View article]
    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...

    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,

    Can you imagine what aapl's share price would be today if Apple could have made a deal for nflx years ago.
