  • Responsiveness Report - Bad News For Apple? [View article]
    With 9 million iPhone sales this weekend, I am not sure anyone at Apple is losing any sleep over the naysayers.

  • A Clear Message From Nuance [View article]
    With Icahn having a stake in Nuance and Apple, maybe he trying to get Apple to buyout Nuance.

  • Apple's Magic Is Broken [View article]
    Apple has never been concerned with people like you. The idea that the iPhone is outdated is nonsense. Vast majority of people are using their phone to run apps, check email, play music, text and make calls. As for the size that is a personal preference. I have seen the Samsung large phones and the screen is bigger, but that does not make it better. In fact, I find these phones too big and I am still using the 4S. I find the Apple ecosystem far superior combined with the iPad and a Mac.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    The irony is the people who complain the most about the tax havens and shelters are the ones who created them in the first place.

  • Apple - Hold On Tight And Don't Play Wall Street's Game [View article]
    I was recently at the AT&T Store and walked away unimpressed with the screen display of all the larger phones. None of them looked better or more clear than my iPhone 4S.

  • Apple Is Still Cool [View article]
    The problem with your market share theory is it does not equate to profits. Apple has always been much more interest in profit than market share. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    Has AAPL really plummeted or was it grossly overvalued the last 6-9 months and has come back to earth? I think we need a few quarters to understand what is going on for sure.

  • Google Stole Apple's Mojo [View article]
    I have been reading more and more people are using for search. At some point it will start affecting Google. Over the last 30 years every company that climbs to the top gets thrown over at some point. Google will face this too some day.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Owning a Prius or a Volt is not practical for many people, so it is not a a real solution. It might make a small percentage of folks feel good, but it is far from a solution to the problem.

  • The Young And Restless Portfolio: Selling Apple In This Aggressive Growth Portfolio [View article]
    Nothing wrong with AAPL taking a breather and letting us see how the next few quarters unfold. The stock ran up to fast, I can appreciate how the market works (positive and negative). However, too many people are still hyping the story without seeing how this will actually play out. Time will tell.

    I bought between $89 and $199, so I am a bit more long-term oriented than most folks around here. I will sit back and collect my dividend check while waiting to see what the future brings for AAPL.

    You would think Apple is going out of business by most of the media coverage. $120 Billion in cash on hand, 70+ million iOS products sold last quarter, 2nd best earning report ever given and it is not good enough. If you hate Apple here, how do you feel about HP and Dell in comparison?

  • Apple's Cheaper iPhone: Don't Panic! [View article]
    If this phone is actually being made, it would probably be old technology that they can made cheaper at maintain margins. Probably something like the 3GS.

  • Apple Needs Product Diversification [View article]
    Most people just do not understand Apple. They are not ashamed of making a profit and are not hung up on market it share if it reduces profits.

    Apple sells low costs phones too, they still offer older models at reduced prices. You can get the iPhone 4 for free. Can it get any cheaper than free?

  • Why Apple Won't Acquire Twitter [View article]
    Apple's history is only buying small companies to fulfill very specific needs. It is highly unlikely they would make a $1+ billion acquisition any time soon.

  • Oh Apple, About That 'Win' You Thought You Got... [View article]
    Not sure I would go that far. Apple has the cash to buy a company if they need too.
